Helping me teach my children...

I believe I am led when I teach my children and I thank my Heavenly Father that He blesses me with the inspiration I need to be a good mother.

When we discussed how our family can be together forever during our Family Home Evening, we were going to play catch with this little soft soccer ball as the game that night. I wasn't sure how to relate the game but it just came to me. The soccer balls little sections were made up of five different colors in a ring held together by one white patch in the center and that was the pattern for the entire ball. I explained that we each were like a different color and the white patch was like the temple holding us together "seams". Then we just played.

Family Home Evening doesn't have to be anything hugely organized or elaborate. You don't have to do a craft or game or have hand outs. You just need to relate a spiritual topic to what you're doing already, or bear your testimony. The important thing is that you are spending time as a family and allowing the spirit to teach you together.

This is what I have learned.
