This year, the Church has split it’s “Light the World” campaign into four distinct weeks, with each focusing on a different sphere you can influence for good.


For the third week of December, we are encouraged to light our families. If you aren’t sure where to begin, here is a list of helpful ideas with varying degrees of time commitment and planning.
