I am Lara. I have been married to a wonderful guy for almost 23 years now and in the process have become mother to five (mostly) great kids, ages 11-21. :)
Several years ago a friend asked me to join a FHE lesson exchange group and sometime after muddling through my first lesson and receiving the amazing efforts of the other members of the group it soon became an all-consuming passion for me. I was so excited to have wonderful, creative resources for teaching my family the gospel, that I joined every exchange group I could find (on the internet, in my ward, in other wards). Every night after the kids went to bed became my researching, cutting, coloring, and laminating time. Creating family home evening lessons was my main hobby for 4 or 5 years.
Now I have teenagers in the house and I don't have time to participate in the groups any more, so my passion has evolved. What started as a way to back up my favorite lessons, should anything happen to them, has become a continuation of that same passion I had then. It is my hope that you will enjoy these lessons as we have and that you, in turn, will share them with others. I have a testimony of the strength and the joy that weekly family home evenings can bring into families and I hope these lessons will make that quest for meaningful lessons a little easier for you.
Please feel free to contact me for questions or ideas for future lessons. I love hearing from you! :)
