Recently someone talked about her family and how that family is the plan of Heavenly Father. Agreed. Family is part of that plan.
I challenge that notion.
I was raised in a "traditional" family. I was part of a "traditional" partnership which resulted in the "traditional" offspring. And now I'm part of something seen as "less than" and "unworthy". Yet ... I'm happier than ever, feel more connected to my Savior then ever before, feel more peace about me and mine than I ever have, and ... I know that my family unit is part of His plan.
If by their fruits ye shall know them ... is my orchard to be ignored just because it's not the fruit you're used to? Discarded just because someone told you it was bad? Look for yourself and see, and I challenge you to find an absence of God, His blessings, His favor, and even an absence of His approval in my family unit. What you will find is a secure, loving, happy family who loves God and receives His blessings regularly. A family that absolutely belongs together.
Family is definitely being threatened, people, but your "traditional" one isn't on the receiving end.
