Monday we had a family home evening lesson on saying personal prayers (I thought that this would help to encourage my rowdy kids to be a little more reverent and a little more spiritual). So, I printed out an little chart allowing them to "X" off each day this week if they said a personal prayer. Kadan (Mr competitive) was the first and after he disappeared for a few minutes up to him room he came downstairs beaming that he said a personal prayer. Then Kadan helped Bo say her prayers and Addy skipped to a private spot to say hers. Last was Hunter -- the contemplative one. After a little while he came to me and said,
"Mom, guess what. You can really feel the Holy Ghost when you say personal prayers. It makes you feel so good inside."
