My Heavenly Father gave me the greatest gift of all time. The person that I love the most is my little sister Hailey. She is the greatest gift given to me! We are beyond close and we have the ability to laugh at every thing. Sometimes we say that we have a langue that is all of our own because we can look at each other, laugh our heart out, and without saying a word, we know what the other is thinking. Growing up, we didn’t always get along and we still have days that we argue but at the end of the day we love each other. I believe that our Heavenly Father has given us our families for certain reasons. That they are organized through God for our benefit to help us grow and to lift us up in the times of need. There have been more days than one when a phone call home or reading a letter from her has helped me in the times that I need the most. This love that we have for each other has come from our faith in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. We know that we will have the ability to live together for ever and we cherish that ability. We tell each that we were put on this earth for soul purpose of being each other’s keeper. We look out for each other and are grateful that we have the bond that we do. She is one of the greatest gifts that I have received from my Heavenly Father.
Doctrine and Covenants 132: 15-20 tells us:
15 Therefore, if a man marry him a wife in the world, and he marry her not by me nor by my word, and he covenant with her so long as he is in the world and she with him, their covenant and marriage are not of force when they are dead, and when they are out of the world; therefore, they are not bound by any law when they are out of the world.
16 Therefore, when they are out of the world they neither marry nor are given in marriage; but are appointed angels in heaven, which angels are ministering servants, to minister for those who are worthy of a far more, and an exceeding, and an eternal weight of glory.
17 For these angels did not abide my law; therefore, they cannot be enlarged, but remain separately and singly, without exaltation, in their saved condition, to all eternity; and from henceforth are not gods, but are angels of God forever and ever.
18 And again, verily I say unto you, if a man marry a wife, and make a covenant with her for time and for all eternity, if that covenant is not by me or by my word, which is my law, and is not sealed by the Holy Spirit of promise, through him whom I have anointed and appointed unto this power, then it is not valid neither of force when they are out of the world, because they are not joined by me, saith the Lord, neither by my word; when they are out of the world it cannot be received there, because the angels and the gods are appointed there, by whom they cannot pass; they cannot, therefore, inherit my glory; for my house is a house of order, saith the Lord God.
19 And again, verily I say unto you, if a man marry a wife by my word, which is my law, and by the new and everlasting covenant, and it is sealed unto them by the Holy Spirit of promise, by him who is anointed, unto whom I have appointed this power and the keys of this priesthood; and it shall be said unto them—Ye shall come forth in the first resurrection; and if it be after the first resurrection, in the next resurrection; and shall inherit thrones, kingdoms, principalities, and powers, dominions, all heights and depths—then shall it be written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, that he shall commit no murder whereby to shed innocent blood, and if ye abide in my covenant, and commit no murder whereby to shed innocent blood, it shall be done unto them in all things whatsoever my servant hath put upon them, in time, and through all eternity; and shall be of full force when they are out of the world; and they shall pass by the angels, and the gods, which are set there, to their exaltation and glory in all things, as hath been sealed upon their heads, which glory shall be a fulness and a continuation of the seeds forever and ever.
20 Then shall they be gods, because they have no end; therefore shall they be from everlasting to everlasting, because they continue; then shall they be above all, because all things are subject unto them. Then shall they be gods, because they have all power, and the angels are subject unto them.
Through the Love of the Savior, my family has had the opportunity to grow stronger and have a greater love towards one another. I love that I know that my family can be together forever.
