FHE for Two

Before my husband and I were married, we talked a lot about the importance of having Family Home Evening (FHE) in our home. We came to the realization that if we wanted to have FHE with our future kids, it was important to start now as a couple. 

In our 4 months of being married, we quickly learned that FHE with two is not always the easiest. Our desires and attempts seemed hopeless. What were we supposed to do to reach our goal?

Luckily, conference brings answers to the questions of our heart. Our answer came in one simple phrase: ponderize. 

During conference, Elder Devin Durrant invited all to choose a verse of scripture to ponderize (80% ponder, 20% memorize) each week. We realized that this invitation was the perfect solution to our FHE dilemma. 

The solution: Study a conference each week for FHE, and based on our study, choose a scripture to ponderize for the week.

Tonight was the first night of us trying this new FHE solution and it has definitely shed a new light on the beauty of FHE as a couple. I'm excited for this new learning and growing journey! 

What do you do for FHE? What have you found effective?
