Family Home Evening Lessons on The Family: A Proclamation to the World, Lesson #2

The second paragraph in the the Proclamation on the family contains only three sentences, but tells us so much about ourselves, our purposes, and our destinies. I'll just quote it here and let you ruminate at your will:

"All human beings—male and female—are created in the image of God. Each is a beloved spirit son or daughter of heavenly parents, and, as such, each has a divine nature and destiny. Gender is an essential characteristic of individual premortal, mortal, and eternal identity and purpose."

I love knowing that God is not a vague, mysterious being, but is the Father of my spirit. Not only am I His daughter, I am his beloved daughter. I know what I am capable of because I know the characteristics of my Heavenly Father.

So, we as a family read this together and talked about our divine natures verses our human natures. For the activity, we each drew a picture of ourselves and put them onto a poster that now hangs in our kitchen.
