About the Book
It has been decades since the family proclamation was first presented to members of the Church by President Gordon B. Hinckley. But despite the passage of time, the counsel provided in the family proclamation is ever more vital in these tumultuous last days. Creating Your Forever Family is an indispensable resource, providing practical application of the nine principles outlined in the family proclamation. Featuring counsel from Church leaders and stories of these principles in action, this book offers ways to incorporate these values into everyday life, from interview questions designed to help kids open up to the game night ideas to fun family dinner conversation starters. Families will be strengthened as each member gets involved in the discussions and applications. Now is the time to fortify families and truly embrace the principles of this great proclamation.
About the Author
Rachel A. Sullivan grew up on Anchorage, Alaska, and if she could sit down with you, she would love to tell you tales of her igloo home, pet polar bear, and dog team she mushed to school across the frozen tundra. Unfortunately none of those stories would be true; she lived in a house, had a pet dog, and rode the school bus across icy but paved streets.
Rachel holds a BA in English from BYU with a minor in marriage, family, and human development. She served in the Virginia Richmond Mission, where she fell in love with Southern people, Southern food, and the scriptures. Rachel is passionate about teaching and testifying of the gospel of Jesus Christ to people of all ages.
Rachel is married to her sweetheart, Cameron, and they are the parents of four children. Rachel tries to embrace as much of the joyful messiness of family life as she can; when life becomes too much, she pulls out her karaoke machine for a bit of musical therapy.
Author Rachel A. Sullivan has written a book that is deep, spiritually uplifting, and inspirational. In each chapter of this book a different topic and principle from the Family Proclamation is discussed, along with quotes, stories, and insights that can realistically be applied to everyday life. The topics in this book are great for family discussion time such as Family Home Evening, meal time, or special time on the Sabbath. This is a book that will bring thought provoking discussion time and cause a change for the better within the family unit. Although an LDS faith based book, it can be used and applied to all religiously inclined families.
