Whether you're single, have kids or roommates, or are an empty-nester, this is a tradition of faith that will bring the true spirit of Easter to your home. We hope you will join us this year in the celebration of Easter Week—whether you're new to The Small Seed community, or you participated in this tradition last year!
I feel as though children are best taught through example. Trying my best to be focused on my religious journey is my way of encouraging them....Their love for Shabbat is something I hope and pray stays with them their entire life.
I think there is beauty in showing God love and respect. When we set apart time to honor God with our actions it’s the same as putting a love note in your kids lunch or putting a note out for a spouse. It’s taking that moment—that extra step—to say, “You are important to me, and I’m putting you first.”
Being holy is being set apart for a greater purpose and remembering that—seeing that, looking for that—as opposed to getting swept into the dead-end dustpan of busyness that American life often offers.
The definition of holiness is setting aside something for a sacred purpose. I know from personal experience that it’s not always easy to set the urgent tasks aside for something that doesn’t seem as pressing. But it is when we take time, really take the time to focus in on God, His Son and their work, that we really are saved.
As we’ve been taking a good hard look around us—at ourselves, our families, our media and our world, we’ve realized so many of us struggle with one very fundamental thing—loving ourselves, and seeing ourselves as God does.
With Valentine’s Day coming up next month we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to have a lesson focused on love. God is love. As Thomas S. Monson said, “Love is the very essence of the gospel, and Jesus Christ is our exemplar.”
