This week's Young Women lesson is on Encouraging Family Unity. There are a few quotes that really stood out to me.
“May I suggest that we give more of ourselves. … It might be something as simple as smiling more in your home.
“What would you think of speaking more cheerfully? Trying more often to say please and thank you?
“What would you think of finding an opportunity for one sincere compliment for each [person] each day, and then watching them respond?
“What if you decided to be cheerful tonight at the dinner table, and in spite of what others might do or say, hold to your course. See how long you can uplift your whole family” (H. Burke Peterson, in Conference Report, Oct. 1972, pp. 148–49; or Ensign, Jan. 1973, p. 115).
As you go through this week in preparing your lesson think of things you can do to make your family a stronger family unit. I know one thing we need to do as family at my house is pray together as a family. Also, study the scriptures. I really think these things will help us grow more in unity.
