This warning provides comfort

I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  I’m pretty sure there’s a Primary Song that says that, but I converted to the LDS church way too late for Primary.   Life has been insane lately and I really needed to do something crafty…it’s late though and I didn’t want to drag out all my usual favorites so I decided to finally embellish my Family Proclamation.  I had one like it before, but it got water damaged in one of our moves.  I have meant to have new mats made for some time now and finally remembered to take the odd sized frame this was originally in to the store.  Turns out buying new frames was cheaper that buying new mats.  Who knew mat board was so expensive sheesh…certainly not this guy!  Anyway….here’s my frame before…more or less (color is different):

The Family Proclamation is beautiful.  Particularly this part:  “We warn that individuals who violate covenants of chastity, who abuse spouse or offspring, or who fail to fulfill family responsibilities will one day stand accountable before God. Further, we warn that the disintegration of the family will bring upon individuals, communities, and nations the calamities foretold by ancient and modern prophets.”  Ex Knight will one day stand accountable to God, and when he does….well only God will be able to help him, and maybe just maybe it’ll be too late.

I wasn’t going to embellish this frame, I really wasn’t.  Ask my Darling Daughter’s they’ll tell you.  Being the crafty chick I am though, I couldn’t resist.  Here’s the after photo:

Isn’t it pretty?  I covered the majority of the mat with pictures of the temple.  The pictures were printed out on brochure paper from HP, trimmed, and adhered using my ATG.  There are nearly 150 world wide…I’ve only been to about a dozen.  To read the rest of the Proclamation to the World on Family, please click here.

  1. Faith, glad you found some “encouragement” and will within to craft. It is a very nice piece. A nice testament to your faith.

    I went and read the full proclamation. I appreciate it. I think it is beautiful for a group of believers to consciously think this trough and put it in writing for their followers to draw upon as an extension and help in understanding of God’s inherent word found in the Bible. I pray that your church as whole backs this proclamation and that the members do uphold it. Wee need this kind of example. I appreciate churches that are convicted.
