April 2019 General Conference

Home, a Heavenly Place

“We hope and pray that each member’s home will become a true sanctuary of faith, where the Spirit of the Lord may dwell. Despite contention all around us, one’s home can become a heavenly place, where study, prayer, and faith can be merged with love.”

President Russell M. Nelson, “Closing Remarks,” Liahona, May 2019, 111; emphasis added.

Serving Up General Conference for Home Evening

I kept getting the feeling that I should try using conference talks for family home evening lessons. At first I resisted. My kids are young, the talks are hard for them to understand, and I wasn’t sure there would be any kid-friendly subjects. But I knew I had to at least try.

Using general conference talks has not only completely transformed our family home evenings for my children, but we’ve had some great gospel discussions. Interspersed within total chaos, there have been small miraculous moments of family bliss.

“Small acts of faith are required to ignite God’s promises.”
