Family Home Evening Instruction:
Start family home evening by showing your family members as many sticks as their are members of your family. Explain that when families are sealed together by the power of the priesthood in the temples it is like the rope. Tie the rope around around all of the sticks. Explain that just like the rope binds the sticks together, same with the marriage sealing or sealing ordinance. The sealing ordiance binds family members together for all eternity.
Read and Discuss: "Priesthood Ordinances and Temple Work Bless My Family", BY JENNIFER MADDY.
