Abstract

In the early years of the Restoration, the Prophet Joseph Smith received tutorials from the Lord regarding the eternal importance of families and how Latter-day Saints should act in regard to their families. Beliefs about family responsibilities became an important part of the faith of the Latter-day Saints. Before Joseph Smith received these revelations, his translation of the Book of Mormon provided him many concrete examples of righteous conduct in families and instruction from Nephite prophets on the Lord’s will in this regard. From both the Doctrine and Covenants and the Book of Mormon, readers today can learn how much the Lord loves all His children and wants all to be happy in their families.
