Home, Family, and Personal Enrichment Meetings

Print Share

    When planning home, family, and personal enrichment meetings, carefully assess the needs of the sisters. When applicable, make certain these meetings include classes that help develop skills in parenting and family relations. The Family Guidebook (31180) and Marriage and Family Relations Instructor’s Manual (35865) may be used as resources. These are available through Church distribution centers.
