Faith/Knowledge Value Project

When I was 19 or so, the Stake President of the stake I lived in challenged all the members of the stake to memorize "The Family - A Proclamation to the World."  My dad, being bishop at the time, encouraged us to do it as a family, and we did!  It was such a good experience and I learned so much about the essential and most basic principles of family and marriage.  One of the Faith Value Projects is to memorize "The Living Christ," which I think would be a great experience also, but we decided as a class to memorize "The Proclamation."  A couple of the girls already have a Faith Value Project done, so it can also be done under Knowledge.  We just started at mutual a couple of weeks ago (we had a personal progress night), but have been practicing every Sunday during the first couple of minutes of class.  It's fun because we are all doing it together and my advisor is bringing treats for every paragraph they get done.  We're able to talk about the things we learn and memorize and incorporate so much of that into our lessons also...  And if a 12 year-old can do it, so can you!

PS - It was Pres. Hall of the Tempe, AZ South Stake.
