For Family Home Evening last night we planted chrysanthemums. The kids took turns digging holes, breaking up the root-bound plants, placing dirt around the planted flowers, and fertilizing the plants. While they worked, Garry and I talked to the kids about nurturing our faith and testimonies like we would the plants in our garden. We related scriptures from Alma 32 and Jacob 5 in the Book of Mormon. And we taught them a little bit about gardening along the way.
This also was our sneaky method of completing some yard work! I love the happy blooms so much.
