Today we enjoyed a nice day as a family. We travelled to nearby St. Augustine and explored the Castillo De San Marcos National Monument, the oldest military fort in the United States (it was built in 1695). Then we played in the chilly water and sand at the beach. After dinner this evening we watched a short video about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Our Family Home Evening lesson was short and to the point. I reminded the children about The Family:A Proclamation to the World, focusing on the following segments:
“…marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God and that the family is central to the Creator’s plan for the eternal destiny of His children.”
Happiness in family life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities. “
