Notes from Stake Conference

Things we can do to help our children:
  1. Have personal prayers. Let the kids hear you pray.
  2. Have family prayers. Give children a chance to pray and let them hear you pray.
  3. Have personal scripture study. Be immersed at all times. Memorize the scripture masteries with your children.
  4. Have family scripture study. Let your children hear you read and testify.
  5. Hold Family Home Evening weekly.

As we study our scriptures, fast, and pray, we bind ourselves to the iron rod. (See Alma 17:1-3.)


Prayer after curfew when the kids come home.
hmmm.... interesting idea


President Hinckley, as reported by the San Antonio Mission President, advised the new Mission Presidents to: 1) teach them who they are, their divine origins. They are sons and daughters of God; and 2) teach them their responsibilities.

Wouldn't it be great if it could be said of our family: "Pursued excellence in their scripture study."


Elder Anderson: "Let us be careful. Let us be frugal. Let us not buy things we absolutely do not need. Live carefully. Frugally."
