What Is a Family?

by Klara, 11, from Kentucky

“Love and belonging,” says my mom.
My brother says, “People.”
“Encouragement, friends and happy times,” I say.
My sister Gwen says, “Everyone at the table.”
Her twin Grace says, “A family plays games.”
And Dad says:
“It starts with God, and a man and a woman,
And it grows into a beautiful flower,
Creating petals to glorify God.”
(And honestly, I think he’s right.)
