The family is being attacked
Teaching in the home is the most important. More important than church and school.
ways to safeguard our family
1) Pray for help to guide the children
2) Hold FHE, scripture study, eating dinner together
3) Communicate with the teachers in the church for children’s needs
4) Share testimonies often with children
5) Organize families for righteous family culture
Teach by example as well as by precept
Parents work out a partnership for a strong family culture

Beehive analogy–all together we can change the world

Are you a Mormon?
Yes, I am a Mormon and I believe that the Book of Mormon is true
Robert C. Gay
Would you sell your soul for a nickel?
It is easy to get caught up in the world
Petty sins, Satan wins
Look to submit to the will of God
Will we shrink when the Lord asks of us hard things?
I will give away all my sins, big or small, my excuses, personal pride, doing things our way
Personally avoid all Worldliness
Orphan boy losing his daily earnings—–God is mindful of the individual
We must listen to the Spirit regardless of our fears and inconveniences
It is not enough to avoid evil, we must find the lost, the last
Sophisticated neutrals…. exchange our sins for being employed in God’s service
Our testimony is our most treasured possession
Scott D. Whiting
Holiness to the Lord The House of the Lord
Temples are sacred
Only the Lord knows if we have done our best
We should move quickly to repent….the Lord knows us so well
We need to do our best and eliminate flaws and imperfections in ourselves so we can stand in holy places
Neil L. Andersen
The gift of faith is a priceless gift
Work to strengthen our faith
Trial of your faith-these fiery trials are to test you
Trials are camouflaged
How do you remain immovable?
Exercise faith in Christ, pray, read scriptures
Distancing yourself from God’s church during trials is not helpful
Within the sanctuary of the Church, your faith is fostered
In the ordinances the power of God is manifested
No trial is so large we cannot get through it together
So as the heaven is higher than the earth, are my ways higher than your ways
If men build on the rock of Jesus Christ, they cannot fall
With faith comes trials of faith for increased faith.
Hold on. Fear not. For God shall be with you forever and ever.
Dallin H. Oaks
Our responsibility to protect children
All children are children of God
Children need others to speak for them
Put their needs in front of adult selfish wants
Diminishing birth rates are from abortions
Be more loving and helpful to children
For children, marriage matters
Unite to protect children all over the world–they are the future
