“Our Weekly Planning Meeting,” Ensign, Sept. 2009, 71
My wife and I have found it helpful to have a weekly planning meeting each Sunday night after the children have gone to bed. We begin with a prayer to invite the Spirit to guide us in our planning. Then we express appreciation for the positive things we’ve noticed about each other during the past week. With our meeting off to a good start, we review or update the family schedule for that week and month. We note any areas of concern the family might have and consider possible solutions. When we consult together and feel the Spirit with us, good ideas and solutions to our challenges occur more readily.
