Get Involved

Welcome to the Neighborhood News


In the 1971 Ensign, George Durrant wrote the following:
“Parents who harbor a dream for their children’s destiny know that the Lord’s family home evening program is like a gift from heaven. It is not something that we have to do. It is something that we get to do.

“Most parents have similar aspirations for their children. Why then have some parents made home evenings part of family life while others have not? Is family home evening, for some, just another burden added to an already overburdened life? Do some fathers feel that they aren’t equipped educationally or spiritually to teach their children? Have some tried and been discouraged by the restless or the rowdy resistance of their children?”  Source
A few years ago I read an article in the Ensign that changed my perspective on this subject. Haven’t you ever felt like ‘great, it’s Monday again. What to do’?

In this article, the author said that her outlook on Family Home Evening had changed when she realized that it was her own personal calling, one that she wasn’t going to get released from any time soon. So she started planning and preparing her lessons just like the ones for Primary. It made the whole experience with her family a lot better.

What are your thoughts on the subject?
