A child’s curiosity and natural desire to learn are like a tiny flame, easily extinguished unless it’s protected and given fuel. This book will help you as a parent both protect that flame of curiosity and supply it with the fuel necessary to make it burn bright throughout your child’s life. Let’s ignite our children’s natural love of learning!

Yesterday was Father’s day, and in the ward I visited for sacrament meeting, one woman gave a 15 minute talk about her dad.
I don’t know about you, but I go to church to hear about Christ, not another person’s father.
I would hope that even in the more event-oriented sacrament meetings (Father’s day, Mother’s day, Fourth of July, Thanksgiving, and especially Christmas) that we would remember to include the very reason we are meeting together in worship: Jesus Christ.
Sharing stories about growing up on a chicken farm are better saved for a party or other social gathering, and not during one of the most important hours of the week where we gather to commune with the Saints and be spiritually uplifted.
Said our prophet:
It should be recognized that this Church is not a social club. This is the kingdom of God on the earth. It is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Its purpose is to bring salvation and exaltation to both the living and the dead. (Gordon B. Hinckley, via Quoty)
