Family Home Evening





The family is such an important part of a child's development. As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints we believe in strong families. And one of the best ways to build a strong family is by spending time together.

For many years, our Church Leaders have encouraged families to have "Family Home Evenings." This is where families set aside a special time each week where family members can come together to build unity, and grow in love & faith.

To help me be prepared, and to perhaps help anyone who would like to join in, I'm going to post on Sundays what we will be doing that week for Family Home Evening.

Many times our focus will be on the things we believe and building faith in Jesus Christ & His teachings. Please feel free to modify these activities as suits your family and your beliefs.

However you choose to do it, I invite you to join me in having a weekly Family Home Evening, and enjoy being together as a family!

I credit family home evening, and having them regularly, with how close we all are as a family. My three kids actually enjoy playing together, help each other with chores and homework, and I think a very important part has been all the family home evening lessons and time we've spent together, learning about the gospel.
