Seeking What's Good...

We've been listening to this song a lot lately. Natalia first heard it at a Young Women's meeting, and it's got a great message!

The song goes along with this year's theme for the Youth, the Thirteenth Article of Faith:

"We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul--We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things."

For Family Home Evening we worked on the 13th Article of Faith. Monkey THINKS that he is in charge of FHE every Monday.  He wrote the agenda down on the bottom left hand corner of the board.  I'll translate for you:
  • Oponing Prer = Opening Prayer
  • Oponing Song = Opening Song (pretty obvious) 
  • Toke = Talk (lesson)
  • Aktevt = Activity (he wanted to watch 101 Damsos {Dalmations}) it didn't happen.
  • Kosing Prer (Closing Prayer)

Artwork was provided by Natalia and Joe.

Here is a game on to reinforce and practice the Articles of Faith. There are three different levels, so it's fun for beginners or for those who already THINK they have them memorized!  We have used the songs to help learn and reinforce the Articles of Faith, too.  Joseph is memorizing them to sign off for the Faith in God program, too.

Most of the time, holding Family Home Evening is HARD!  I am tired at the end of the day.  I get up early, and by that time of night the house is a mess, the dishes need doing and the kids are all getting tired, too.  We try to keep FHE short, and sometimes the kids are cooperative and helpful.  Sometimes they are wrestling on the floor or pouting in the corner.  There is no telling how it will go, but again, we do try.  And I try NOT to pull my hair out.
