"Happiness in family life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ." - The Family: A Proclamation to the World
For this 5-minute Family Proclamation Lesson, I wanted to play off of the analogy we used last time...that if you build your family upon The Rock, which is Jesus Christ, you will most likely find the happiness for which you seek. The scriptures teach us this time and again:
And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon thearock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your bfoundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty cstorm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall.
As our craft, I wanted to make these rocks, which Steve and Guy picked up during a special fishing trip, into necklaces like I'd seen online, but we didn't have the right bit for drilling, so I had Steve just make this heart carving on a rock and we called it good.
Autumn, my nature-girl, is having a ball playing with them.
You can see the other lesson we did on this topic here: Build Your Family on the Rock.
