Honour thy father and thy mother.

Matthew 15:4

During Christmas, we are reminded that Jesus Christ is the light of the world. This year, we have an amazing opportunity to share that light by resolving to do the things Jesus Christ did. Every day leading up to Christmas, we will focus on a different Christlike behaviour and provide suggestions for ways we can emulate His example. You’re encouraged to participate using the following outline as you plan your Christmas activities.

  • Call (not text) your parents.

  • Write a handwritten note to your parents or in-laws.

  • Learn about an ancestor and share their story. For help, try FamilySearch.org.

  • Ask your parents for advice on parenting your own children.

  • Create an audio recording of your parents’ life stories.

  • Set up a weekly video chat with your parents.

  • Grab a stack of old photos and digitize them for your parents.

  • Post a positive characteristic that you inherited from your parents on social media.

  • Take your family to do chores around your parent’s home.

  • Tell your parents about how they were right. Be specific!
