The next four weeks I will be posting family home evening lessons that teach about the US Flag, Pledge of Allegiance, Patriotism, and the Preamble to the US Constitution. It is a nice way to lead up to the Independence Day celebrations you will have will your family while at the same time teaching them a little bit about the great country we live in. The lessons were based of off the Family Home Evening Supplement Guide the church published in 1987 to celebrate the Bicentennial of the US Constitution. This guide is no longer available from Church Distribution which is unfortunate as it contains so many wonderful lessons and ideas. Over the next several years I will continue to create 3-4 FHE lessons from this guide to use during the month of June or July.
Today (Sunday, June 14) is Flag Day. This lesson teaches about the history of the US Flag as well as the history of our national anthem.

For some reason the lessons are printing really big, cutting some of the images off. The best way to avoid this is to download the pdf file to your computer and then print it. You must have a Scribd account to download the file but it is free. To download click on the third icon from the left at the bottom of the scribd screen. It looks like a cloud with an arrow pointing down.

For the next several days I will be posting about the World Congress of Families. This year it is being held in Sydney, Australia. Remember how we helped to raise funds for Angela to attend? She is sending daily reports of the presentations, interviews she is able to have, and more. I am excited to share with you what she is experiencing. There are so many around the world - politicians, religious leaders, community organizers, trained professionals, and others - who are dedicated to defending the family. I will try to post each day's events in order so you are not reading them backwards as you scroll down. I have broken up Angela's summaries into several posts so it isn't overwhelming to see a HUGE post. Remember, if you have any questions you would like her to ask when she gives her interviews, leave them in the comments and I will pass them along to her.
