Sunday Sermon

OK, I'm not really going to preach to you. Just going to mention what stuck out to me at church today, and my thoughts on it. They mentioned the importance of teaching your children what's right at home. As parent's it's our responsibility to teach our children right from wrong. We can't leave it up to the world to teach them. We will be held responsible by God for what we do or don't teach them. It is important to read scriptures as a family and teach our children to pray. I haven't always tried to bring the Spirit of the Lord into my home as much as I should, but I'm trying to do better. I'm teaching my 2 year old to say prayers at dinner and before bed, and we have our weekly Family Home Evening where we have a simple lesson, songs, and scripture. He doesn't really understand yet, but I want him to grow up knowing about the Gospel.

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