"We further declare
that God has commanded
that the sacred powers of procreation
are to be employed only between man and woman,
lawfully wedded as husband and wife."
When we asked the children this morning if they knew how babies were made, we, of course, got blank stares! (They are, after all, only 4, 2, and 1.)
One of them offered up, "You came as babies."
So we used that as a starting point for our brief, but important discussion.
I said that, yes, mommy and daddy started off as babies, just like they did. Now that we are grown-up we can use our bodies to make more babies. Some people use their ability to make babies before they are married, but Heavenly Father wants us to do this only when we are legally married, as husband and wife.
And that was that.
The kids were thrilled with these rag quilt letters--rearranging them to spell different words.
I planned on making the whole alphabet, but ran out of the backing for the time being.
Find out how to make these "rag quilt letters" at Happy Together.
They are very easy to make! I could see an older child helping out with them.
