Let us be Men

As Father's Day approaches, I like to reflect back on my father who has been gone now for over 14 years.  He was a great example to me of how to be a man.  He taught me to respect others, to work hard and to love family.  All characteristics that I took for granted that everyone knows.  However, in today's world we see the crumbling of the family.  The adversary has slithered his way into the destruction of the family unit.  As we go to celebrate Father's Day this year, I call on all fathers everywhere to step-up and be the men that we ought to be.  I know that not all divorces in this world are caused by men, but I would be surprised if the majority of them are not.  The Savior was asked, what matter of men ought we to be and he answered, "Even as I am."  We, as men, need to put off selfishness, love our wives and our children.  I am so grateful for my beautiful wife and my children.  I am so grateful to be a father and a husband and I pray that I can be the man that my children look up to and that my son's can use as an example.  Here is a short video that I thought was really good.
