In church today (with the children), we talked about the importance of reading scriptures with our families every day. I created this little lesson with coloring pages for the children to present to their families tomorrow night for Family Home Evening. The lesson outlines some of the blessings that will come to our homes as we study scriptures daily together as a family:
If there are two things that I love most in this life it's 1) good people and 2) good traditions. I have been blessed to be surrounded by both for just about all of my life.
This weekend, we continued a tradition that my parents started over 30 years ago. Steve and I held our 2nd annual neighborhood 4th of July Parade and flag ceremony, complete with the singing of The Star-Spangled Banner and playing of Taps. We were joined by over 125 neighbors and friends. The children were adorable all decked out in patriotic fashion. Steve closed the
gathering with a prayer.
My neighbor Theresa put together a neat video of the parade...(to see it scroll down). Thanks to everyone who made the day special and memorable!
"I testify to you this day that the time will come when every man, woman, and child will look into the Savior's loving eyes. On that day, we will know with a surety the worth of our decision to straightway follow Him."
