"God has revealed through his prophets that men are to receive the priesthood, become fathers, and with gentleness and pure, unfeigned love they are to lead and nurture their families in righteousness as the Savior leads the Church."  (OT gospel doctrine teacher's manual, lesson 4)

I don't love the husband: family :: Jesus : church, but please note that it says fathers are supposed to nurture their children.  I frequently see/hear that it's women who nurture and fathers who provide, as if both of these roles are mutually exclusive.  Mothers and fathers can both nurture and provide.  The roles don't have to be so separated.
