This weeks FHE lesson was a super simple one!
I got the idea and printables from a super AMAZING blog!! Her name is Tonii and I am happy to say she is one of my dear friends and I absolutely adore her:O) She is such a great mom and I love following all of her super fun posts.:) here is the link for her lesson, http://ptskjohnson.blogspot.com/2012/03/follow-prophet-family-home-evening.html, go check it out:)
I thought since conference is coming up it would be a great idea to talk to the kids about the prophet and hopefully get them excited about hearing him speak to us this upcoming weekend. I printed out and laminated the picture of president Monson and then we talked about who the prophet is and what he does. Ryker was stunned when I told him that he actually gets to SEE Heavenly Father, and Jesus.. We talked about how he gets revelation for the church and that its his job to "LEAD" us down the right paths so we can eventually make it back to our Heavenly Father... I love the idea that Tonii used, telling her kids that they should ask Heavenly Father in there prayers if President Monson is the true prophet on the earth today.. I think its sooo good to encourage them to find things out for themselves and to build there own testimony of the gospel... After we were done talking about the prophet we played follow the "LEADER", and whoever was holding the picture of the prophet got to be the leader.. Of course the boys LOVED when it was dads turn to be the leader;) ALL IN ALL it was a GREAT lesson and I am soo glad we get to hear from the prophet this weekend.. I LOVE conference weekends and I am looking forward to spending time with my boys and hopefully teaching them to love conference as much as I do. ...... (we are having fun foods and building our tent to watch conference in.. the boys CANT WAIT)
and then this is how the lesson ended.. Usually bri is the one beating on ryke, but not tonight....
I LOVE spending time as a family!!
