Loving others isn’t just for one day a year; it’s a commandment for us to do always! The Lord has laid the responsibility on parents to teach their families to love and serve each other. It’s a daily challenge, and it’s something we have to keep teaching and re-teaching.
Celebrate the month of love with a craft that celebrates the ones you love. Jamie at The Crafting Chicks made a “tree” out of some crafting branches in a vase and personalized it with pictures of her children. She took it one step further, and on the back of each picture she wrote, “We love (child’s name) because…”
This craft can be personalized in so many ways! It would also work great with pictures of roommates, grandchildren, Primary classes, or nieces/nephews. You could even use photos of extended family or make it a family tree with pictures of ancestors you are thankful for. I also like that you can make this at different levels of difficulty–cute and craftsy, as it’s shown, or simply, with real branches and just cut-out photo prints. (more…)

The Christmas of the Electric Blanket
by Cindy Beck
It was 1977, and we were students—poor as the desert soil around us which grew nothing but sagebrush and rattlesnakes. The rented house we lived in was old, with “central heat” from a furnace under the living room that blasted a column of air up through a grated, three-by-three hole in the floor. Not much of a heating system by today’s standards.
Our kids are going to mess up. It’s just part of life. But do we sometimes worry more about what the neighbors might think than about keeping our focus on our children, who need our unconditional love as they learn from their mistakes?
We, as parents, are given the charge to create a home environment that is conducive to the spirit of God and that is also safe for mistakes to be made. If it is expected that everyone will make mistakes, then we can prepare to teach the consequences of those mistakes in our safe and loving environment, an environment where the Spirit is the teacher.

Welcome to the Neighborhood News
Love is the measure of our faith, the inspiration for our obedience, and the true altitude of our discipleship.
President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Love is a powerful emotion. Whether we’re attempting to soothe an emotional child, take care of our bodies or corresponding with a birth mother who has made the ultimate sacrifice, we’re showing love. Love comes in all forms and ways, but the most important show of love comes from our Heavenly Father. (more…)
Welcome to the Neighborhood News
When we hear a single young woman (not necessarily a teen girl) becomes pregnant, we also find out that there are many voices that surround her, giving their opinions about what to do. That young woman feels pressure from differing views: raise the baby on her own, expect the father to be involved, give the baby up for adoption, or even to have an abortion.
