Commandments

Importance of Church Attendance

"It became easier to go to church when I didn’t make the decision week by week. The decision was made once and for all—every Sunday we attend church. I knew it and the children knew it, so they didn’t waste time trying to find excuses not to go. They also knew that being unruly in the meetings was not a way to get me to let them stay home the next week." Check out this FHE lesson on Church attendance.
