Families are Forever

Questions need answers. Those who have soul searching questions all have something in common. That "something" is yet another question. That common question is where do I find answers? If I were on the outside looking in, if I did not know where to find answers, I think my questions would almost always revolve around my family. What happens to my family after this life? Where will we go? Will I get to see them again? What do I have to do to be with them again?
I was reading a couple of days ago the definition of "family" in the Bible Dictionary. The very first line was this: 
Family. The Bible is family oriented.
The one thing that stood out to me the most was this part:
Latter-day revelation confirms all that the Bible teaches about the family and adds the most important truth that through the gospel of Jesus Christ the family can be sealed together in a permanent relationship for time and all eternity (D&C 132).

The most important truth on the earth today is that families can be together forever through the gospel of Jesus Christ. I can be with the crazy people in my life that I love so much only through Jesus Christ and His gospel. That is how we carry these relationships in the next life and to the next level of greater joy and happiness. Lovely!
Jesus Christ is the answer. His teachings, His gospel is where our soul searching questions can receive answers. He has provided a way for us to return home to Him and to our Father. God's House is on the earth so that families can enjoy peace in this life and eternal life in the world to come.
