“We had a nice little lesson and activity,” said Frandsen. After starting with prayer, they talked about being nice to people and sharing. They reinforced the lesson with a fun sharing game.
Empty nesters keep tradition
Even when the kids are grown, the church encourages couples to keep the tradition. A group of empty nesters from the Anderson church ward gets together twice a month for FHE, rotating the site of their get-together between houses. Last week, Carol and Dave Lukens hosted the evening with a total of 11 people at their Anderson home.
“We did a pioneer theme,” said Carol. She noted that the pioneer experience is important in church history, with July being the time when the arrival of Mormon pioneers to Salt Lake City is commemorated.
“We all look forward to it,” said Carol. “It’s a time we set aside, a time to get together and have fun, and a spiritual time as well.”
