Conversion Is More Likely To Happen In The Home

Book of Mormon Marriage And Family Study

2 Nephi 1:14

"hear the words of a trembling parent."

Lehi is trembling because he is in the last days of his life. A “trembling parent” shows to me the responsibility he felt as a parent and his role to teach and lead his family. I don’t believe in deathbed repentance. He wasn’t trembling because he was about to die and realized that he wasted his time on earth and finally felt responsible to teach truth. Clearly, he led his family his entire life and didn’t shirk his responsibilities off to the church or anyone else. Additionally, he is not the kind of father who would allow mass media and pop culture to influence his family and children.

He knew that children are our most precious gift from God. Therefore, he raised them with all his might, mind and strength.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints made some profound changes on how the gospel is taught in the home. The new program is a Church supported home centered approach to gospel learning. Conversion is more likely to happen in a loving home than at church. For example, sitting in a classroom is a very passive way to learn. However, discussing the gospel together as a family is very active which gives the Holy Ghost the opportunity to pierce their hearts and souls.

If you live in the Salt Lake City valley, I invite you to join us at church on Sunday's. Currently we meet at 9 A.M.; however, starting in January we will change to noon. We are a mid-singles ward; however, if you have a family please don't let that stop you. Please, join us for for our first meeting which is Sacrament meeting, and make sure you ask someone to introduce you to our ward mission leader. Our address is 7155 South 540 East, Midvale Utah, 84047.
