Family home evening
I have been trying to refocus on family home evening lately, as I feel we've gotten a little bit lazy about it. My goal is to teach my kids about the scriptures but have a good time doing it, and make sure it's a positive experience.
Tonight I felt prompted to share the story of the ten virgins from the Bible. I retold it (both the older kids remembered it once we got started), then we watched this movie. It really made an impression on Tiger Lily, who can be hard to reach.
Now we all have bean jars to fill with our "drops of oil" as we do things that bring us closer to Christ (we agreed that real oil would be too messy).
I hope we can continue to have these positive learning experiences together as a family. I'm not sure now what we will talk about next week, but I know if I ask, God will nudge me in the right direction.
