One spring evening before listening to prophets speak in LDS General Conference, my husband and I wrote down personal questions we wanted answered.
Mine was, "What can I do to better strengthen my family?"
My answer came when President Henry B. Eyring got up and said, "There are things you can do early, when those you love are young. Remember that daily family prayer, family scripture study, and sharing our testimony in sacrament meeting are easier and more effective when children are young..."
Sharing my witness in front of the entire congregation was pretty much the last thing I wanted to do, but it was my answer. Then I wondered... how often do I have to do it? Quarterly? Whenever I feel like it? What?? I realized I'd only really feel I’d done my best to strengthen my children if I did it every single month. So, that's what I do now. It's been good for each of us, even my husband and I. I know that.
Then I realized that I was telling stories in my testimonies. Personal, family history, valuable stories that I should record. I send an email blast every week to my extended family, and I started to tack my testimonies on the end of my emails under the heading TESTIMONY BELOW. This book is a compilation of those testimonies. Enjoy!
