Today in sacrament meeting a wonderful speaker talked about General Conference and how lucky we are to have modern-day prophets and apostles. As she spoke I felt like I was getting an answer to my prayers.
You see, I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how I can best raise my daughter. How can I teach my Little Lion to be strong when so many around her will be making poor decisions. It seems as if the world gets worse every year. How can I teach her to be a light in the darkness?
We know that family prayer, scripture study, and family home evening will all help us teach her, but we wanted some more specific guidance – particularly in the area of family home evening.
The answer came like a light bulb, teach her the words of the prophets and apostles. General Conference is filled with modern-day guidance from leaders with a special connection to God. I talked to my hubby and we decided it would be a good idea to use General Conference talks as inspiration for our family home evenings.
If you want to join us on our journey I’m going to post the basic lesson plans for the FHE ideas here on my blog. I’ll update this page with links to the different ideas as I go along. Remember, these are just basic outlines and ideas; I would suggest that you utilize the Spirit to create Family Home Evenings specific to your family. I hope this can be an endeavor that helps us improve our family home evenings!
Once again, I’m not an official spokesperson for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Everything you find here is my opinion.
