“We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law.”
I ended up working late on Monday, so we ended up having Family Home Evening Tuesday night. We started with a sing and a prayer. We then had our family council, where each family member has the opportunity to share concerns, worries, problems, or anything else they want to. Next, we practiced reciting the first eleven Articles of Faith. Next, I read the 12th Article of Faith to the kids. We talked about what these different rulers are and how we need to follow the law. We played a fun game called Obeying the Law Game. I put the numbers 1 – 12 in a hat and Amanda and each of the 3 kids each drew 4 numbers. I then would read them a situation that would allow them to answer what they would do in each situation. (Amanda seemed to really enjoy it). Next we watched Zack & Zoey Explorer The Articles of Faith: 12.
We closed with a song and a prayer.
(Thanks SugarDoodle for the idea).
