Our INSPIRATIONAL FAMILY FOCUS is found in thoughts by Elder Larry R Lawrence:

“What the world really needs is courageous parenting from mothers and fathers who are not afraid to speak up and take a stand..”
Courageous Parenting
Larry R. Lawrence
Elder Larry R Lawrence
“Courageous parenting does not always involve saying no. Parents also need courage to say yes to the counsel of modern-day prophets. Our Church leaders have counseled us to establish righteous patterns in our homes. Consider five fundamental practices that have the power to fortify our youth: family prayer, family scripture study, family home evening, family dinner together, and regular one-on-one interviews with each child.
It takes courage to gather children from whatever they’re doing and kneel together as a family. It takes courage to turn off the television and the computer and to guide your family through the pages of the scriptures every day. It takes courage to turn down other invitations on Monday night so that you can reserve that evening for your family. It takes courage and willpower to avoid overscheduling so that your family can be home for dinner.”   

[....or in our case, just simply being together for dinner!!]

I am loving all the pictures! Especially since we don't get to see everyone near enough. We miss you guys! I totally agree with family time. I love family dinner. I never realized just how important they are!

We also miss spending time with you and your family! Wish we lived closer and then we'd have some family dinners together!!
