Touch the Hearts of the Children

When our children feel our love for the Lord and our unconditional love for them, then our example becomes a meaningful guide to them as they develop their own spiritual strength. Remember the Lord’s commandment to the Israelites to, first, put His words in their hearts, and then He said, “Teach them diligently unto thy children” (Deut. 6:7). In all that we do, we can teach our children to love the Lord. At times our most impressionable teaching happens when we don’t even realize that we’re teaching. Anne G. Wirthlin Touch the Hearts of the Children

I feel very blessed that our little family is surrounded by not only both sets of grandparents but many other family members and friends who play a very important part in our lives. My "little guy" is so lucky to have so many wonderful people who love him and who I am happy he has them to look up to as an example.... It really got me to thinking how can we all do better showing our unconditional love to those around us.. Thoughts? Suggestions?

Can I ask you where you found your book 25 Mistakes LDS parents should never make? I have been looking online, at deseret book, at the library and can't find it anywhere! I would love to be able to read it.
