World's largest family home evening is being organized by LDSHearts.com for single members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) May 27, 2006 -- The World's largest family home evening is being organized by LDSHearts.com for single members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.LdsHearts.com, one of the most popular online communities for LDS singles, is making access to all features on the popular LDS community free every Monday, beginning on May 29, 2006, so that single members of the LDS Church will have an opportunity to participate in what is being called "The World's Largest Family Home Evening."
In the Church, Family home evening is considered a special time set aside each week that brings family members together and strengthens their love for each other, helps them draw closer to Heavenly Father, and encourages them to live righteously.
In 1915 President Joseph F. Smith and his counselors in the First Presidency began a Churchwide effort to strengthen the family. They called on parents in the Church to gather their children once each week for a "Home Evening."
Families were to take time to pray and sing together, read the scriptures, teach the gospel to one another, and participate in other activities that would build family unity. In 1970 President Joseph Fielding Smith joined with his counselors in the First Presidency to designate Monday night as the time for family home evening.
Since that announcement, the Church has kept Monday evenings free from Church activities so families can have this time together. Latter-day prophets continue to urge Church members to give highest priority to family home evening. They have promised that our dedication to this program will help protect our families against the evils of our time and will bring us abundant joy now and throughout the eternities. "
Like all Church members, we value the spiritual experiences and the joys that come from spending time with our family and friends during this special day of the week and we understand how single members of the Church might find it more difficult to have a regular family home evening on their own, so we feel this is a great opportunity to bring tens of thousands of like minded single LDS Church members together to discuss Gospel principles and make new friends," says James Gillen, President of LDSHearts.com.About
