How can we even describe the divine role of a father? Personally, I think it’s by looking at exactly Who our Heavenly Father is, and what He really does for us. Having the priesthood in my home from the day I was born is a direct result of my conversion to Jesus Christ. Thanks, Dad!
“The consummate power of the priesthood has been given to protect the home and its inhabitants. The father has the authority and responsibility to teach his children and to bless and to provide for them the ordinances of the gospel and every other priesthood protection necessary. He is to demonstrate love and fidelity and honor to the mother so that their children can see that love.”
—Boyd K. Packer
