"FAMILIES CAN BE TOGETHER FOREVER" - NO EMPTY CHAIRS IN OUR HOME!




Roger and LeAnn Williams Family
We believe in Eternal Families. Our goal in our family is to have No Empty Chairs. We desire that all of our children will obtain the goal of having Eternal Families. In order to achieve that goal it will require constant, consistent and diligent effort in living a  more righteous and Zion like life. Our families have goals such as consistent family prayer, scripture and family home evenings, attending church, the temple, supporting each other in activities and having at least one meal a day together where family members can share their experiences for the day. We desire to follow our Prophet and leaders in our Stakes and Ward. As a family we should also plan how to serve others around us.
The following is a quote from The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Proclamation on the family. "The family is ordained of God. Marriage between man and woman is essential to His eternal plan. Children are entitled to birth within the bonds of matrimony, and to be reared by a father and a mother who honor marital vows with complete fidelity. Happiness in family life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities. By divine design, fathers are to preside over their families in love and righteousness and are responsible to provide the necessities of life and protection for their families. Mothers are primarily responsible for the nurture of their children. In these sacred responsibilities, fathers and mothers are obligated to help one another as equal partners."
Our goal in our family is to have frequent family gatherings where we can increase our bonds of love and friendship among each family members. In our family we have noted that having reunions has allowed the grandchildren to feel the bonds of love among their cousins.
We recently had our 2010 reunion and it was so awesome. 
Here are some of the pictures from this family event.

Barb wanted me to ask our son who is a optometrist and treats children with all sorts learning disabilites if he thought he could help her. with your post listing her disabilities so well, it will help him know her situation a little better. He practices in Boise and is only by referral.
