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.
Watchmen on the Tower FHE
I assembled this family home evening lesson in preparation for October's General Conference. It teaches what a watch tower is for and the responsibility of the watchmen. It then tells how Heavenly Father provided watchmen for us today, the prophet and apostles. In doing the lesson you will create a watchtower to hang on your wall with pictures of the First Presidency and Twelve Apostles. Leave it on display in the week(s) leading up to General Conference so your children will recognize them when they speak. The lesson also contains a link to Apostle Cards from Sugardoodle.net.
Scribd is not my friend right now! For some reason they are asking some of you to pay to subscribe before you can download. Here is a link to the pdf file that I uploaded to Google Docs. You should be able to print or download it for free using this link
