February Newsletter

"Honorable, happy, and successful marriage is surely the principal goal of every normal person.”

Marriage is perhaps the most vital of all the decisions and has the most far-reaching effects, for it has to do not only with immediate happiness, but also with eternal joys. It affects not only the two people involved, but also their families and particularly their children and their children’s children down through the many generations".


We will be having two classes, budgeting with Summer Gordon and Cleaning with Mary Jackson. We will start at 7pm and there will be a children’s class provided.

Independence is the ability to meet personal and family needs without calling upon others for help. The Church and its members are commanded to be self-reliant and independent. When they take responsibility for their own and their family’s well-being, they are better able to sustain themselves in everyday life and during adversity without becoming dependent on others. When members find it necessary to receive assistance beyond that which they or their families can provide, the Church stands ready to help. In all cases, members should avoid becoming dependent upon outside sources of help, including government, and strive to be self-reliant.
"The Lord said that it is important for the Church to 'stand independent above all other creatures beneath the celestial world' (D&C 78: 14). Members of the Church are also counseled to be independent. Independence means many things. It means being free of drugs that addict, habits that bind, and diseases that curse. It also means being free of personal debt and of the interest and carrying charges required by debt the world over" (James E. Faust, Ensign, May 1986, 21).
