Do You Know Your Siblings? a Fun Game for Family Night
Do you guys remember playing "Do you love your neighbor?"  I must admit that I never played that until I entered the singles wards and started mixing from people out West.  We never really played it here in the East growing up. Anyway, yesterday before chur...

General Conference ABC Comic Books and More
Honor and I are busy getting ready for General Conference weekend over here.  Luckily, over the years, I've figured out how to save things in one basket to be pulled out and re-used from conference to conference.  Things like reusable/refillable notebooks a...

Elder Keetch: Blessed and Happy are those who keep the Commandments of God
Happy President's Day, everyone!  I hope you're having a happy day off with your children!   Last night, as part of our Sabbath Day observance, we had a lesson/activity about Elder Keetch's General Conference talk " Blessed and Happy are Those Who Keep the ...
Elder Keetch taught us to trust the barriers and that God's commandments will keep us safe and happy. Here's a little lesson we did on the topic.
