Love their Mother

As a father of 4 beautiful children, I found this quote from Elaine Dalton's talk in the October 2011 General Conference that applies to all parents.  I really like this quote from her because we as parents always want what is best for our children and as a father it has been so clearly laid out to us.  The best thing we can do for our kids is not get them the latest fashions or video games.  The greatest thing we can do for them above all else is love their mother.  Here is her quote and a photo I took of the St George Temple.

"Love her mother so much that your marriage is celestial. A temple marriage for time and all eternity is worthy of your greatest efforts and highest priority. It was only after Nephi had completed the temple in the wilderness that he stated, “And … we lived after the manner of happiness.”2 The “manner of happiness” is found in the temple. It is covenant keeping. Don’t let any influence come into your life or your home that would cause you to compromise your covenants or your commitment to your wife and family."
