Erickson Family FHE 5/15

I have thought maybe some of my friends would like some of my FHE ideas. I use the last General Conference to base my FHE lessons off of.
Tonight’s was based off of Henry B Eyring’s Talk “As a Child” I took my usual tangent to apply it to a 2 and 5 year old’s lives and we talkeda bout the differences between childlike and childish.
We quoted the scripture that we are to become like a child in order to enter the kingdom of heaven. I tried to make it clear that there are many childLIKE attributes that are very important for all people to posses (being loving, submissive, humble and patient). I had the definitions of childish and childlike up on a flannel board and then we took turns pulling-out different things, to which we categorized them as childish or childlike (aka, yelling and screaming through our house, or being willing to take criticism).
I think that Conner felt proud that he had many of the characteristics that God wants us to have. Anyway, maybe that’ll help someone!

    I’m with Kent! You’re making me feel horrible about my mothering skills! Why don’t you just make a list of all your great ideas and send them my way! We tend to just read a story from the Friend and try to have some sort of discussion about it. Not very good most of the time! Oh well, at least I’m trying.
