Music in the Home

Don't have a piano?  Follow the music links provided in the FHE IN 10 lessons and you can be accompanied right from your computer. True, gathering around the laptop is not quite the same as gathering around the piano, but it works!

Priesthood leaders encourage us to use uplifting music in our homes, to have a copy of the hymnbook and the Children's Songbook, and to sing this music as families. Concerning the importance of music in the home, the First Presidency said:

"The hymns can bring families a spirit of beauty and peace and can inspire love and unity among family members. Teach your children to love the hymns. Sing them on the Sabbath, in home evening, during scripture study, at prayer time. Sing as you work, as you play, and as you travel together. Sing hymns as lullabies to build faith and testimony in your young ones."
