Now during both the Bishop's interview and the discussion with the missionaries they made comments about how much Cooper knew, and how impressed they were. They commented that they can tell that we have Family Home Evening, or that his mother is teaching him well. I blush and avert my eyes at these comments, because we haven't been doing well and having FHE regularly. Or scripture reading and family prayer for that matter. So, while I'm having a guilt trip, my mind also reflects on my patriarchal blessing. It makes a statement about my children being able to preach the gospel and serve Christ and that it will be through my teachings and faithfulness. Another guilt trip. I need to get on the ball.
How can my children live up to their potential spiritually if I'm not guiding, directing, teaching and preparing them?
