I went to the temple on Friday night so I could get one last trip in before baby. I paid a lot closer attention due to our discussions. :)
When I left that night I was wondering a lot about stewardship. We've talked about women's roles and whatnot, but the temple does indeed have parts that indicate men have an incredible stewardship/responsibility for their families. For example, the new name. We don't know our husbands but they know ours.
I haven't ever read about the priesthood with a husband's/father's role specifically in mind but I am curious about how that stewardship plays out or should play out in our home and in the eternities.
Does anyone have any good reading material about that?
Kelly, I can't think of anything else we've done with the YW that would help you, but I am always trying to think of new ways to build the relationship between the two organizations. In the handbook it says that one of a RS presidents main jobs is helping girls transition throughout their YW years into being RS members.
Everyone, this talk by Elder Bednar it is a game-changer. For reals, man. Read it. Let me know what you think.
