Will we recognize our loved ones once we are in Heaven? Will we know our our spouse and children?

The answer to your question about relationships with our loved ones in Heaven will be found in Matthew 22:23-30. There will be no marriages at that time. We will have glorified bodies like Christ and will know our families in a different way. Matthew 17:1-4 describes Jesus on the Mount of Transfiguration where Moses and Elijah appeared. The disciples had never seen them, but immediately knew who they were. Why? Because this scenario pictures the hour of the Rapture when believers receive glorified bodies similar to Christís (Philippians 3:20,21; I John 3:2). In these new bodies we shall know all things, including the recognition of our loved ones (I Corinthians 13:12).
