Captain Moroni: The Armor Of God.



Last Monday seemed to be on of those days that didn't flow very well and we seemed to run into some kind of road block everywhere we turned. It was full of tantrums, from both Molly and Stella, Stella wouldn't ever let me put her down. She is back to not sleeping (I think most of it is due to teething, I'm hoping.) Molly didn't get her nap and is just into everything. Everytime I turn around she has some new destructive and creative idea. It was just not a smooth day for us on the home front. Because of that we opted to head to Wendy's and some Japanese place to pick up dinner. We came home and ate. Stella and Molly were so funny to watch. They just kept looking at each other and just laughing. They have gotten to be good little buddies. Molly kept feeding Stella her fries and she loved them. After dinner we got everything cleaned up and jammies on and then for our FHE lesson we read in Molly's little scriptures about Captain Moroni and how he armed his men with armor before they went to war with Zerahemnah and the Lamanites (Alma 43). We didn't read a lot, but just how the armor protected them. Then we got Molly all dressed up in armor and we talked about how important it is for us to put on spiritual armor, and how we do that by reading our scriptures, saying our prayers and listening to mom and dad. It was short and sweet, and I don't really know how much she got and understood, but as she gets older someday she will get it... I hope. She is so cute and it was fun to see her in the armor, she thought that she was the coolest kid on the block. So for the kind of day we had FHE was actually a nice ending to the evening, and then it was off to bed.

What a cute idea. You remind me that Andrew and I need to start up FHE again, even though Finn is hardly old enough to understand anything right now...but it's the effort that counts, right?

That is so cute. She will have those pictures to look back at and see that you were already teaching her all about the gospel. Way to go on still having FHE on such a crazy day! :)

What great idea. I loved doing the "armor of God" with members and investigators on my mission. We'd use backpacks, aprons, pans, umbrellas... I bet Molly loved it.

Stella is getting so big! And I love your St. Patrick days pictures/food/outfits! Cute! Hope to see you tomorrow!

You have the best ideas for engaging FHE lessons with young kids!
