Stephenson Family Ties The Barn Burnt Down
And Now I See The Moon


Tegus, I'll not find a better man than
you, not on the steppes, not in any city
or in all the wilds of the Eight Realms.
You're better than seven years of food.
You're better than windows. You're even
better than the sky.

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.
