Family Night

One of the great benefits of having missionaries living in your home is that Family Home Evenings seem to be so much more intentional and successful.  

Last night we helped the sister missionaries make pass along cards to invite people to watch General Conference next month. 

Emma found a cute coloring page of the Salt Lake Temple. printed it out 6 per page on cardstock, and then cut them into individual cards.  

Then we dragged out all the colored pencils we could find, spread everything on the dining room table and the seven of us spent an hour happily coloring while we listened to a super old devotional by Hugh B Brown.  (Well, not all of us were happy about coloring.  McKay would rather have done a million other things but he endured the experience.)

When we were finished, the sisters had 24 personalized, handmade pass along cards to take to all their investigators and less active families in the ward to invite them to General Conference.

Seriously, this might have been the most fulfilling FHE we've ever had.  Everyone was so happy and cooperative, even after coloring for so long that their fingers hurt.  (I really think boys need more coloring in their lives.)

We ended with dessert and the most awesome video that should totally be a Mormon Message.  

"And charity suffereth long, and is kind, and envieth not, and is not puffed up, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil, and rejoiceth not in iniquity but rejoiceth in the truth, beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things." - Moroni 7:45
