Hi sweet friends! I haven’t been able to do too much with my blog recently, but I’m keepin’ up with these family nights we’ve been doing! I have been loving the sweet comments, e-mails, and feedback from so many of you. Knowing that you’ll be here every Monday makes it worth it for me to keep posting! (And I secretly love that we’re all doing the same thing every Monday… it’s kinda like we get to hang out from a distance! 😉 )
This season of life is busy for me… that or I make it that way. Being busy is NOTHING to be proud of, but it’s something that helps me not dwell on things or get too homesick. I have so many thoughts swarming that I want to share and updates on our family, so I hope you’ll stick with me during the slower times of my blog! And if you’re one of the ones who checks back every Monday, I just love you and know your family will be so blessed by doing these simple lessons every week. Life sometimes can be pretty rocky, but I promise that the little things are the big things. I’ve learned recently that it’s so easy to let being “busy” take front row and the important things get pushed aside, but the second we stop doing the little things, hills turn into mountains and rain turns into storms. But the second we allow the gospel in our home, life might still be hard, but we gain a light and strength that is so necessary. Necessary for ourselves, but more importantly for our babies who have yet to grow up in this world.
Here is this week’s lesson teaching one of those simple things we should always remember:
Lesson #9: A Child’s Prayer
Opening Song: A Child’s Prayer (here)
Scripture: 3 Nephi 18: 21 (here)
Lesson: Discuss what it means to pray and who we are talking to when we pray. Teach the steps of a prayer: beginning, end, and how we bow our heads and close our eyes.
Activity: Paint prayer rocks
Treat: Chocolate covered bananas
