  • The family is the unit in which we can build relationships with our children and show love to our Wives and Children, furthermore we can show respect, honour, kindness, acts of service, perform skills, receive an education. We can learn in the home to build a fountain of knowledge both spiritual and temporal. This knowledge will be one that will help us in our future families. We can also learn to love one another in the home. We learn to respect our family members through being curtious and obedient to our parents. Church members are encouraged to hold a Family Home Evening, each monday night, if possible. This FHE should consist of Church songs, a spiritaul message, an opening and closing prayer, plus some fun. This programme enables the family within each home to spend some time together, plus much more... Show more
