LDS Families – Making Home an MTC

For years now our family has had one focus;to be the kind of family who lives each day with spiritual purpose. We deliberately do all kinds of things like have daily devotionals and family council meetings, weekly PPIs. A family mission statement isn’t just a good idea to us, it is something we use to keep our family focused on progressing as a group toward the missions God has prepared for each of us. We talk about everything and every feeling. If we feel the Spirit leave our home every member of the family has been taught to bring it to the family’s attention and to pray and sing a song to invite it back into the home.

If we are driving to the store and children start to argue, we stop, discuss, pray and sing until we feel the Spirit so that we can go out into the world carrying a feeling that will be different, warm, and inviting. This the way we live to keep the Spirit and to stay focused on our responsibility to spread goodness and light to the world.
