A Patriotic Resource . . .

Thanks to Latterday Conservative for the link to this wonderful resource. I have never seen this pamphlet before and after looking it over, I think there are many great parts that I can use to encourage knowledge of our country, the founding fathers, and our wonderful Constitution.

The fact that this was put together under the direction of men inspired from the Lord is even more encouraging. Here is what they said:

Our Dear Brothers and Sisters:

On September 17, 1987, we commemorate the two-hundredth birthday of the signing of the United States Constitution. The group of inspired men assembled for that convention produced the document that the Prophet
Joseph Smith referred to as “a glorious standard” and “a heavenly banner.”

In commemoration of this important event, we are providing this booklet, which contains three family home evening lessons, activity ideas, and a copy of the Constitution. We encourage you to prepare and teach each lesson prayerfully so that family members may feel the divine significance of the Constitution in their minds and hearts.

Faithfully, your brethren,
The First Presidency
(Ezra Taft Benson, Gordon B. Hinckley, Thomas S. Monson)
