    5 Times the Extra Smile Perfectly Captured Your Family

    Which one of these could be about YOUR family?

    Every month, the New Era features a few cartoons in the Extra Smile section. And every now and then these cartoons might have seemed a little too familiar. Maybe like they were about your own family?

    1. When your brother or sister takes the wheel:


    2. When Mom gets serious.


    3. When professional surveillance teams have nothing on your parents.  


    4. When family dinner needs a referee.


    5. When someone taking your row is a REALLY big deal.


    No family is perfect. In fact, families can get a little crazy! But at the end of the day, aren’t you glad God gave us families? Elder L. Tom Perry said, “The family is the center of life and it is the key to eternal happiness.”

    Next time your family members are driving you crazy, try to focus on all the things you love about them! You could even make a list and share it with them. (Careful. This may send them into shock.)
