Many people are looking for “real happiness”. What is real happiness? Where can you find real happiness in this life? Can you find in through friends, work, environment, career, or is it in your own family? As we go on in this article, I will help you realize what real happiness means and where to find them. Happiness is defined in many forms. Each of us may define happiness differently and the happiness of the other may not be to another. But what I will be saying to you is more of general information about the happiness that you can find within your family. My questions would be – do you go to church? Do you believe in God? Do you read the Holy Scriptures? Or, do you go to church regularly? If you do, it is where real happiness starts. Our Heavenly Father is the only one who can give us real happiness, a happiness that money cannot buy.
Real happiness can be found in the gospel of Jesus Christ. If you are reading the scriptures, you will learn about basic principle of happiness. One would be to know the plan of our Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ for us. The main purpose of their plan is to help us go back to their presence someday. But the only to make that possible is to have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, baptism for the remission of sins, and through the Holy Ghost as baptism by fire. This is written in the scripture and Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the light, and only through him we can be save. It means that with his “Atonement” salvation and resurrection was made possible for all mankind.
Now, could imagine if you do this as a family? You can find family happiness in gospel as you live it each day. The gospel will make your relationships stronger than before. Your children will grow as god-fearing people. Your actions as a family will always be in harmony to the gospel that you have learned in the church. If you attend church services, make sure that you go as a family. By that, you will be able to learn gospel principles as a family. If you strive to live the gospel principles, I will assure you that you will find real happiness within your family. Your family will be filled with hope as you strive to increase your faith in the Lord.
