An Exciting FHE

At our house Monday night is Family Home Evening. Our church encourages families of all shapes and sizes to spend Monday nights as a family discussing gospel principles. So, last night was FHE. We ate dinner and then read the Book of Mormon as a family. We are reading in Nephi and are on the chapters that are similar to the chapters in Isaiah in the Bible. These chapters are difficult to understand and we stop after every verse and try to teach the kids what is being taught. So, it is can be a long and slow process. While we were reading - we were on verse 1 - we heard a lot of noise coming from the girls' bedroom. Nephi and Gloria are encouraged to sit and listen, but we don't make them and they had chosen to go into the girls' room to play. We sent Faith to see what was going on. She came back and reported that Nephi and Gloria had stripped down to their birthday suits and were dancing around the room singing, "I'm naked! I'm naked!" Now we try to teach modesty in our house - ya know, that your body is a gift and you should treasure it and keep it covered. We go in there and there they were in all their glory - David had to leave the room he was laughing so hard and I had to turn around and try to compose myself. It was hilarious!!! I went and got my camera and I would post the funny pictures, but I would hate to be found guilty of child pornography. We had an impromptu lesson on modesty for the little kids and then went back to our scripture reading. All in all it was a successful FHE!
