I also add my testimony that Jesus is the Christ. He is the Savior and Redeemer of the world.

We are hearing a lot of young men feel that the members do not want them in their home doing home teaching.  How are you encouraging the Young Men (Teachers and Priests) to do their home teaching?

I would say that if some members, not all members are as dedicated or deep into the Gospel as others, dont particularly feel comfortable having home teaching inside their homes, the home teachers and visiting teachers might want to ask if they would mind just having a short message on their front porch so as not to intrude or make to feel intruded upon.  Sometimes just the presence of the Gospel, even if at a distance, can be that little seed planted and through the trust in the spirit, it will grow.

This is what we are working on as a Sunday School Presidency in my ward.
Teaching the Gospel in the Home

No success in the world can compensate for failure in the home.

The Book of Mormon starts out by telling us how important it is for us to teach the gospel in the home. “I, Nephi, having been aborn of bgoodly cparents, therefore I was dtaught somewhat in all the learning of my father;”

Alma's father was a Prophet and he taught the gospel to his children in the home. Despite being brought up in the gospel Alma the Younger used his agency to rebel against his father and the gospel. Alma went so far as to go with his friends and try to destroy everything his father was trying to build up. Each of us have our agency here on earth and we can't force our children to choose the right. All we can do is follow the example of Alma. We need to teach our children the gospel in the home and then pray for them that they will follow the things that they have been taught. We cannot force them to live the gospel, but we can show them love and compassion no matter what course they choose.

Play a quote from President Faust’s talk. The quote starts at 4:45 and goes to 6:05. 
https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2003/04/dear-are-the-sheep-that-have-wandered?lang=eng&media=video
I believe and accept the comforting statement of Elder Orson F. Whitney:
“The Prophet Joseph Smith declared—and he never taught more comforting doctrine—that the eternal sealings of faithful parents and the divine promises made to them for valiant service in the Cause of Truth, would save not only themselves, but likewise their posterity. Though some of the sheep may wander, the eye of the Shepherd is upon them, and sooner or later they will feel the tentacles of Divine Providence reaching out after them and drawing them back to the fold. Either in this life or the life to come, they will return. They will have to pay their debt to justice; they will suffer for their sins; and may tread a thorny path; but if it leads them at last, like the penitent Prodigal, to a loving and forgiving father’s heart and home, the painful experience will not have been in vain. Pray for your careless and disobedient children; hold on to them with your faith. Hope on, trust on, till you see the salvation of God.”

As Alma was in pain he remembered his father telling him about the Savior who would atone for the sins of man and was capable of taking away pain. 
The Spirit was able to bring these lessons from his father to his mind. 
"behold, I remembered also to have heard my father prophesy unto the people concerning the coming of one Jesus Christ, a Son of God, to atone for the sins of the world.

18 Now, as my mind caught hold upon this thought, I cried within my heart: O Jesus, thou Son of God, have mercy on me, who am in the gall of bitterness, and am encircled about by the everlasting chains of death." Alma 36:17-18

In an interview that President Hinckley gave in 2000 he said the following: “"“We have a family home evening program once a week [Monday night] across the Church in which parents sit down with their children. They study the scriptures. They talk about family problems. They plan family activities and things of that kind. I don’t hesitate to say if every family in the world practiced that one thing, you’d see a very great difference in the solidarity of the families of the world” (interview, Boston Globe, 14 Aug. 2000)."

Proverbs 22:6
"6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it."

Mosiah 4:15
"15 But ye will teach them to walk in the ways of truth and soberness; ye will teach them to love one another, and to serve one another."

2 Nephi 25:26
"26 And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins."

In the April 2011 General Conference Richard J Maynes taught the following: "We learned that our children might not remember everything about the family home evening lesson later in the week, but they would remember that we held it. We learned that later in the day at school they would probably not remember the exact words of the scriptures or the prayer, but they would remember that we did read scriptures and we did have prayer. Brothers and sisters, there is great power and protection for us and our youth in establishing celestial traditions in the home.

Learning, teaching, and practicing the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ in our homes helps create a culture where the Spirit can dwell. Through establishing these celestial traditions in our homes, we will be able to overcome the false traditions of the world and learn to put the needs and concerns of others first.

The responsibility for establishing a Christ-centered home lies with both parents and children. Parents are responsible to teach their children in love and righteousness. Parents will be held accountable before the Lord in how they perform their sacred responsibilities. Parents teach their children with words and through example.

I testify that as we teach and study the gospel in our homes that our children will feel the Holy Spirit and learn to follow its promptings. If we hold regular gospel study in our homes our children will remember the lessons that they are taught and the Spirit will work on them and bring them back into the fold.

The family is the bedrock of a successful society. We need to Strengthen our families as a refuge against the buffeting of Satan.
 
Bonds between husband and wife are so firmly planted in history and experience that we often take them for granted. Read more in "Homage to the Home: Why Society Needs Strong Families" http://bit.ly/1b6DJFL #lds #mormon #family

The book of Mormon has been a support to me during my greatest struggles. A study and application of the principles found in the Book of Mormon will heal families, communities, and nations.
 
I love The Book of Mormon. I cherish it. It is a true and historical account of the rise and fall of both individuals and nations who inhabited this American continent. It provides me with personal, everyday reminders of what I need to do to keep from repeating the mistakes of my past. It will do the same for anyone else who takes the time to read it.  
For those interested in politics, it contains the answers we are looking for to maintain the freedom and prosperity of this nation. I admonish anyone who is interested in saving this country from the historical downfalls other great civilizations have suffered to carefully read and ponder it's message.

Being that today is Fast Sunday, this question is for the leaders.  Are you as leaders in your ward/stake going to or did you let the other members know what your testimony is?   High Priest Group Leader, Elders Quorum President, Relief Society Pres, do your members know what your testimony is about the gospel?  When was the last time you shared it?

Elders Quorum Presidents and High Priest Group leaders.  What are you doing to encourage Home Teaching in your Wards/Branches?  What are you doing to encourage temple attendance?  How effective has it been?

Service, Service, Service. As EQSC I found the best thing is to set up the appointment for the struggling companions and go with them on the first visit. This breaks the ice forever. Also calling on my other president members to make then accountable.
Even with both of those good ideas the best is still leading from example each of us as a presidency have 5+ families to visit each month and we are all very busy entrepreneurs.
Lead by example and they will follow.

A place for inspiration and sharing as we serve in the Kingdom of God
Introduction
Get a dose of inspiration every day, and become a part of the conversations on Google+!

Here we spotlight some of the interesting things that Mormon G+ers say, and build circles based on our callings so that we can counsel together as we serve to help build the Kingdom of God. Let us know what your calling is and we'll add you to one of our calling circles:
  • Gospel Doctrine Teachers
  • Gospel Principles Teachers
  • Primary/Nursery
  • Scouting Leaders
  • Young Women's Leaders
  • Young Men's Leaders
  • EQ/HP Leaders
  • Relief Society Presidency
  • Bishopric
  • Ward Missionaries
  • Public Affairs and Mormon Helping Hands
  • Employment

We are looking for page admins who want to help give support and inspiration within each of the circles. Here is a little Bio about each of the ones we have so far:

Ralph Borcherds:  I am a High Priest Group leader.  I am also the Stake Singles Adviser with my wife.  Both callings do overlap in responsibilities.  I served a Spanish speaking mission in the Connecticut Hartford mission.  I love to teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to learn from others.  I currently live in Southern California.  Here is my Google+ profile.  https://plus.google.com/106115954894706164530/posts

Janell Vasquez: I serve as a Sunbeam teacher and Cub Committee Chair. I also work for the church in the family history department and so will regularly post about family history as well, as we have the ability to pull aspects of family history work into all of our callings.

Note: This page was not created by or endorsed by the LDS Church. Its administrators are members of the church who are willing to spend a little time each week sharing information and resources with others.
