That the Lost May Be Found

I’m catching up on our lesson summaries so here is one from a couple weeks ago.

Julia taught a great lesson on Elder Ballard’s talk That the Lost May Be Found. (I have to tell you how much I love our RS lessons. The teachers are always the best and everyone has really great comments!)

Here are some of my notes from the lesson:

Benefits of marriage (as opposed to living together):

  • Higher Satisfaction
  • Sense of security
  • Develop divine attributes
  • Economic well-being

Benefits of having children in marriage:

  • Stable environment
  • Right amount of attention
  • Children have an example of what marriage should be
  • Teaches children how to interact
  • We can be example to the world how families can be

Families working and playing

  • When children are teenagers, limit time spent with friends. Have them spend time with the family and it helps with rebellion. (This was a comment from one of the sister’s mother.)
  • Have wholesome recreational activities
  • Teach Self Reliance
  • By working and playing together you open opportunities for communication.
  • Spend time serving in the community.

Put things in the perspective of the home. Outside activities should increase the strength of the home not pull it apart.
