Taking a little break from all the Christmas fun around here to let you all know about a Family Home Evening that was prepared completely by my granddaughter Elora, age 6.
She told her mom, Erin, one day, "Our family's been having a real problem lately. So I want to do a lesson and teach us."
I wasn't there, but Erin said Elora wrote this out and gave this lesson to her family all on her own.
I've only fixed the misspelled words:
"I share my testimony with you about bad words. Activity: Draw a bad word, then X it out, then write a good word. Then draw with a speech bubble with you saying a good word with some bad words.
You should never say bad words to somebody or something or to yourself.You should say good words. God wants you to say good words. God also wants you to follow his law. It is very important to him. Heavenly Father wants us to be gentle to others.
Daddy said I acted dumb when we put on our PJs but I said you should say I acted lame when we put on our PJs. My mommy also says bad words too. "
So I just called her Mom to find out just what these bad words are.
(That would be dumb, stupid, and the very big one, shut up, but don't tell Elora I wrote them here.)
Erin says once the girls go to bed she and Brock say these all they want to get them out of their system.
On another note, we are enjoying having McKay and Tyler home, although it feels like Tyler is only partially here. He seems to be often in the other room talking or texting Karen. It's all good though.
