day 11 – a much needed creation

Tonight I created a lesson for FHE.  A little of this and a lot of this.

Here are my two favorite quotes:

“Even children can help strengthen a family—do you know how? Elder Robert D. Hales of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles explained, “The key to strengthening our families is having the Spirit of the Lord come into our homes” (Ensign, May 1999, 33). When you pray, study the scriptures, speak kindly, and remember to give thanks, you are strengthening your family! Doing these things invites the Holy Ghost.”

“Disobedience and arguing drive the Spirit away. Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles said, ‘It is the duty of children to obey their parents, to learn, and to help with household chores. They carry the scriptural charge not to contend and quarrel with one another’ (Ensign, Nov. 1980, 70).”

It is much needed.  And I love this promise from the same article:

“As you follow Church leaders’ counsel to be obedient and kind, the Spirit will be with you, helping you strengthen your family.”
