Faith in God

Now that Emma is 8, she can begin working in her Faith in God book.  On Monday she crossed off her first requirement.  She gave a family home evening lesson on the first vision.  She did really well, considering that Sarah , Adam and Laura were all over the place wild.  Annie played the piano for the opening and closing song.  We finished up with a rousing game of tiny trucks, where each contestant is a truck hauling pillows on their back while crawling to the destination.  We got the idea from Family Fun Magazine.
Emma will be giving more FHE lessons over the next 4 years.  As she gets older, her younger siblings will be able to pay attention more and the lessons will mean more to them.  Annie, Howard and I appreciated her lesson, and we didn't even need to be separated for hitting each other!

What a fun FHE! Isn't it exciting when children reach the point of being able to teach a lesson themselves? It's always great to hear their testimonies and points of view.

BTW- I loved your last post with the pics of the painted room. You did an awesome job!!
