Are you tired of hearing about the wedding yet? Just one last wedding-related post... My brother-in-law and his bride were pretty well set up with household items, so I had an opportunity to get a little creative with their wedding gift.
My church encourages families to have an evening at home with their family each Monday, where they learn and have fun with their families. It's called Family Home Evening, and usually includes a lesson, music, activity, prayer, and a treat.
When my husband and I got married, I found it a little hard to do Family Home Evening with just the two of us. One usually thinks of Family Home Evening as something you do with kids. But, all families (even newlyweds or retired couples) are supposed to do it. Years later, I came across this book:
Family Home Evening For Newlyweds, and has a bunch of lessons that work for just two people, specifically a newly married couple. It was exactly what I had needed as a newlywed. But, of course, by the time I found it, as a mom of twins, I no longer needed it. But, I thought it was a great idea and started occasionally giving it as a wedding gift.
This time around, when giving this book as a gift, I made it into a little kit of sorts, a Family Home Evening in a box.
