Sacrament meeting is the hardest time for parents in the 3 hour church block. There seems to be a lot of debate about what activities are appropriate for kids to be doing during this time.
Teaching your children about the true meaning of the sacrament, John Bytheway has composed a poem to help Latter Day Saints learn or remember what they should be thinking about during this time.
The Sacrament is beautifully illustrated by Nathan Pinnock. This illustrated poem is just the story we need to be reading with our families. Bonus, it would be a great family home evening lesson.
