Sometimes I wonder how my kids are ever gonna' make it back to our Father in Heaven. Not because of anything they do, mind you, but because of what a lousy example I am to them. More often than not, I forget about Family Home Evening, family scripture study and family prayer.
Ya' know, if there's one thing in this life I would like to succeed at, it's getting all four of my precious little one's back to Heavenly Father. In order to do that, it takes more than just going with the flow. It requires a real concerted effort. Up to now, I've just been too lazy I think. But I need to stop that, and put forth the effort. So, right now I'm stating publicly that I intend to do better. I'm setting a goal to have Family Home Evening every week for the rest of the year. I'm also going to make more of an effort to follow through with family prayer and scripture study.
I don't know if I'll ever make it to the temple myself, (another goal I need to work on), but my greatest desire is to see that my children make it there someday.
Does anybody else struggle with these 3 essentials?
