Olivia, a young adult from Lakeside Arizona shares her feelings about “The Family: A Proclamation to the World” and the doctrines within.
Interviewer: What stands out to you in The Family: A Proclamation To The World?
Olivia: “ The part that says ‘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.’
Because, we’ve seen… people who grow up in homes without either a mother or a father… have different struggles than people who grow up in homes with both a mother and a father .”
Interviewer: Do you Think that the Family Proclamation is “dead” and needs to be changed?
Olivia: “I don’t even want to entertain the idea that this could possibly be ‘dead’ because then that takes away a testimony of the prophets, it takes away a testimony of God. Everything in [The Family: A Proclamation to the World] is still true… we do not have the right to tell God or the prophets what needs to be changed.”
