New Month, New Theme
June is finally here and it is time for a new monthly theme! This year it is Father's Day again, but different from last year's theme in that instead of being about the different types of fathers this year it will be about the responsibilities of an earthly father.
As shown in the picture above, I have developed six different ties that represent different responsibilities, including being a provider (tie with green dollar signs), a counselor (tie with question marks on it), a teacher (apple tie), a priesthood holder/patriarch (key tie), a helper (tools tie), and a friend (hearts tie). Throughout the month there will be different scriptures that go with each of these.
Originally (about eight years ago) I developed this as part of a family home evening lesson, but my kids still love it. This year I will adapt it to scripture study; but if anyone out there would like a copy of the FHE lesson just leave me a comment or send me an e-mail. It may take me a few days to get it scanned in, but I will definitely get it to you within a week.
Scripture of the Day: "By divine design, fathers are to preside over their families in love and righteousness." (Family Proclamation, paragraph 7)
