Disclaimer: This post is about my faith. If that makes you uncomfortable then please stop reading. It is not my intention to make my readers feel awkward in any way. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am very proud of that part of me and I love the church with all my heart.
In The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints the family is key. Every Monday night is devoted toward "Family Home Evening". It is a time to spend time with the family so individuals can grow together as a family as well as closer to our Savior. I try and do something spiritual every week, although, some weeks it will be spent with the family in a more casual setting.
I have started this Family Home Evening Series to help ME be more organized, but at the same time I ended up helping other families. So I thought I would continue doing this series to hopefully help us all spend more time with our families. Once again the lessons are short, because Hannelore is still young.
May 4th-I will take care of my body
This one requires you to be prepared before hand with the following food items: a banana, an apple, a bunch of grapes, a few strawberries, and a graham cracker.
Start with watching the So Hungry video clip.
After you get done watching it and explaining that you need to eat healthy things to take care of your body then make a "Tooty Fruity Salad". The directions are simple and are given in the movie.

I love the activity that is at the bottom of this page. We are going to work on some things throughout this month to strengthen our family. This will be a good visual to go with it.

Hannelore loves paper dolls so this girl prayer doll is perfect for her! If you have a boy there is a boy version too!
