This is part eight of my ongoing feature of President Benson's address to mothers.
Do Things as a Family. Eighth, take time to do things together as a family. Make family outings and picnics and birthday celebrations and trips special times and memory builders. Whenever possible, attend, as a family, events where one of the family members is involved, such as a school play, a ball game, a talk, a recital. Attend church meetings together and sit together as a family when you can. Mothers who help families pray and play together will stay together and will bless children’s lives forever.
Ezra Taft Benson, To the Mothers in Zion, address given at a fireside for parents, 22 February 1987.
