Do this activity with your family!

Imagine you were going on a trip to meet a very important person. What would you do to get ready? You might get nice clothes to wear, learn more about who you were meeting, or mark the day on your calendar. Heavenly Father has set aside one day a week to be a special day for us, called the Sabbath. For us, the Sabbath is on Sunday. It is a time when we can rest from work, worship Heavenly Father, and spend time with our families. We should get ready for Sunday just as we would get ready for any important day.
