Jay-M's Feelings About Home Evenings

This photo was taken last December 24, 2006, during our Family Home Evening in celebration of the traditional Christmas Eve. In the photo is me and my dad, who is saying the blessing of the food. Not in the photo is my mom, my sister Mitch, brother Jay - A and baby sister Mikaela. Our family gathers on Monday night each week and on important occasions for our Family Home Evenings. My parents see to it that we meet as a family, in a spirit of fun, following a certain routine: opening hymn or song, opening prayer, games, lesson on gospel topics, talent presentation, closing hymn and closing prayer. My parents, even though we are pretty young, always involve us in the planning of our home evenings. Ate Mitch and I take turns in saying the prayers, choosing the songs to sing, games to play, refreshments to have, or helping in the preparation. I always look forward to these home evenings because the atmosphere is one of love, understanding and enjoyment. I also pick - up good habits like praying before meals and learning values that will help me in my life when I grow up. I learned about sharing and that Heavenly Father is happy when I share my toys and always kind to my brother and sisters.
