Ok here is a print, cut and sing…. easy easy…. singing time lesson. My child woke me up at 2:30 am because he’s teething and I couldn’t fall asleep so I read my scriptures and this easy idea came to me.
All the songs that I chose are from the 2015 Sharing Time Manual or you can choose your own songs!!
You just cut the house pieces and talk about how you establish a house of God. Some examples would be family prayer, scripture study, building foundation on Jesus Christ.. ect.
You can use this for singing time or family home evening! 🙂 Enjoy!
D&C 88:119 Organize yourselves; prepare every needful thing; and establish a house, even a house of prayer, a house of fasting, a house of faith, a house of learning, a house of glory, a house of order, a house of God

Sorry for any typos… seriously made this at 3:30 to 6:30 in the morning!!!
We were all matching for church on Sunday so I had to take a picture! It’s definitely not every Sunday where we match. Most Sundays we just try to get out the door and hope that there is a clean white shirt for the boys to put on. Dallin is usually at a church leadership meeting so May Bo has to take the little boys to church by herself. It gets a little crazy on Sunday mornings but we try to keep the Spirit in our home by reading the scriptures and listening to hymns by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
In this picture, little Quentin is only 2.5 months old and Micah just turned 2 years old.
Random Photography Ramble:
Since there usually isn’t an extra person to take the picture, we usually use the 10 second delay on our camera and set it to take 10 pictures at a time. We usually set the camera on some stable surface or a tripod. The only problem with using a tripod is that there is no one to catch the attention of the babies so our kids are never both looking at the camera.
I didn’t think we would end up in a branch. I thought I did my research before coming to Ireland that we would end up in a the Terenure ward. We couldn’t find an apartment until we got to Ireland. The apartment we found is in South Dublin. When I typed our new address into www.mormon.org meeting house finder it popped up with Bray Branch! I was overcome by the spirit at that moment because I felt like that’s where the Lord wants us. I was so excited to go to church the next day.
Indeed, we love this branch! We’ve been to the Bray Branch for two weeks already. There about about 60 people who attend each week. The Church building is tiny! The primary class rooms are the size of a church closet in Utah and everyone is jammed three rooms for sacrament meeting. The hallways can only fit one person. Nevertheless, we felt so loved by everyone there. It’s a small branch so everyone knows if you’re new.
The Branch President immediately interviewed us in his tiny office (again the size of a small closet). The Relief Society President introduced us to families who live close by and told them to watch over us. To our surprise, the Elder’s Quorm President live on the street next to us and another member lives about a five minute walk away. We surely picked a good location for our apartment! The second week at church we also found out another member family moved in down the street and another member family will move into the city within the next few weeks. Can you believe it? There’s only 1500 members in Ireland and we picked a city that will have five Latter-day Saint Families!
During Relief Society and Priesthood you pretty much sit in a circle powwow with about 6 to 7 people. The presidency makes up three of the people in the group. Everyone else has callings in the primary or young womens so they attend those meetings. During the lesson, the people in the circle, takes turns making comments and you can tell everyone are super close friends.
Unfortunately, my long time wait for Micah to be 18 months so he can go to nursery is no longer. The branch doesn’t have enough 18 months to 3 year old kids to have a nursery here but that’s ok. Micah likes church anyways. 🙂
It’s a very tight knit group at the Bray Branch. I’m super excited to go to church again today!
