Family Home Evening Lessons on The Family: A Proclamation
Week 1 Family is the Basic and Most Important Unit of Society
Week 2 We Are Created In the Image of Our Heavenly Father

My daughter and son in law share a birthday, so it was a great time to get everyone together. We had a family dinner and then started the lesson which was a simple one, That our family is stronger together than apart.

Because my husband and I are out of town often, we have not been able to keep as consistent a schedule as I would have hoped. But we are on the right track!

I found object lessons that fit my lessons at other sites. Quotes abound by topic at lds.org. If someone wants to learn about a gospel topic, they do not have to go farther than their own laptop!

Maxwell discussed how we might accomplish this task: “ righteousness, worship, prayer, and scripture study are so crucial in order to ‘[put] off the natural man’. The Savior taught us, we must
