Heaven: A Projection of our Homes into Eternity

lds quote family general conference

In the April 2013 LDS General Conference Elder L. Tom Perry spoke about the importance of obedience. In his talk, he quoted from the lds military handbook where Stephen L. Richards is quoted saying, “Indeed our heaven is little more than a projection of our homes into eternity.”  I love this quote. I feel like it encompasses the whole concept of forever families. What would heaven be without the ones we love? If we really dedicate ourselves to our relationships and build a celestial family here on earth, than home can truly be a heaven on earth. And if so, then the only heaven we will ever long for is one where we can be with our families forever.
