Family Home Evening Lessons on Justice and Mercy

Family Home Evening Lessons on Justice and Mercy
I won't lie.  I have been dreading this topic all year.  I think justice and mercy are quite deep values for young kids to understand.  So I have been dreading trying to find ways to teach my girls about these two very valuable values.  

I thought out of the box and came up with some great ideas for Family Home Evening Lessons on Justice and Mercy.  Some of these are quite literal.  However, some of them, like I said, I had to think of different words you could use to describe justice and mercy.  

The first lesson is about obedience.  When I think of justice another phrase that comes to my mind is obeying the laws.  So that is why I choose obedience.  Then the next two lessons have justice and/or mercy in the title.  Lastly, when I think of mercy I always think of forgiveness.  So I found 3 great lessons on forgiveness.

After looking into ways to teach young kids about justice and mercy I am actually excited to teach my girls.  I shouldn't have had just a bad attitude about it in the first place.  I'm looking forward to teaching a lot about mercy this month because December is a great month to teach that value.

Once again, my basis for choosing values each month comes from the book, Teaching Your Children Values.  (This link is an affiliate link which means that if you purchase something after clicking on this link I will be paid a very small commission.  However, my love for this book started way before this post was written.)

Quotes About Kindness and Friendliness and Love

Quotes About Kindness and Friendliness and Love
These two quotes are some of my absolute favorite.  Maybe it is because quotes that have love in them just naturally make sense to have the words kindness and friendliness in them as well.  Needless to say it was easy for me to find quotes about kindness and friendliness.  However, it wasn't easy to cut it down to only two!

Do you draw names for family members?  Do you play a game where everyone will walk away with a gift, but there are both women and men playing?  These can be tricky things to buy gifts for because you want everyone to be glad they got YOUR gift.

Christmas is going to be here before we know it.  And what comes before Christmas is the first of December!?  We are so close to the full blown Christmas season.  I like to do Christmas countdowns.  I love the fun and excitement of them.  However, I am also more busy than I have ever been in my life.  So I have been struggling with what I wanted to do.  I knew I needed a Christmas countdown idea that is simple and fun.

Movies About Kindness and Friendliness
This is the second to last month of finding movies that relate to the values I am teaching in my home.  It has been hard to find ones that do not overlap.  Although, that is not a terrible issue to have I also wanted to find ones that have not been used for other values.
