A friend of mine suggested the most amazing website. www.ayearoffhe.blogspot.com
Check it out, I have the button on the right sidebar. I am in love. This woman is seriously talented and you know that Heavenly Father is inspiring her as she writes. I am so impressed and excited to start!! There are so many resources out there, the Friend magazine, the scriptures, there is really no excuse as to why we shouldn’t do FHE.
“ I wonder what this world would be like if every father and mother gathered their children around them at least every Monday night explaining the gospel, and bearing fervent testimonies to them. Have the parents of the world from Adam down carried on their home teaching, their home evenings, their home togetherness, and sweet family life as ordained by the Lord? Would there have been a world deluge? A tower of Babel? Would there be oriental and occidental enemies today establishing military bases, accumulating ammunition and inventing missiles, preparing nuclear weapons? In our own dispensation the Lord reiterated his basic command to those who brought children in the world when he said, “Again, inasmuch as parents have children in Zion …. that teach them not… the sin be upon the heads of the parents.” That is terrifying. “For this shall be a lawy unto the inhabitants of Zion…they shall also teach their children to pray, and to walk uprightly before the Lord. “ (D&C 68:25-28) God is our Father and we are his children. He has given us instructions. We must follow the path. Home life, home teaching, parental guidance, father in leadership, that’s the panacea for all ailments, a cure for all diseases, a remedy for all of the problems. “ ( “the family and the home” filmstrip and tape BYU 1975)
