The Book of Mormon tells about a wicked man named Amalickiah.
He wanted to destroy the Church and rule over the Nephites as their king.
Captain Moroni was a strong and righteous leader of the Nephite armies.
Captain Moroni wanted to remind the people how important it was to defend their families and their faith. He tore his coat and made it into a flag, or banner. On it he wrote these words:
“In memory of our God, our religion, and freedom, and our peace, our wives, and our children.”
He called his banner “the title of liberty,” and he fastened it on the end of a pole. Then he knelt and prayed that the people could stay free so they could still worship God and receive His blessings.
The same as then today it is still very important for everyone to have liberty, families and religion.


:: Use a big piece of paper to make a banner that represents your family.
Children can draw things that make your family unique and describe your family
{how many people, where you live, school, temple, church, scriptures, extended family, favourite foods, talents, things you like to do, faith in Jesus, favourite things - flowers, weather etc}

:: Families with older children could sit and write out a family mission statement.
{Or revisit it if you already have one}  Ours {below} is now 10 years old!!
You could print it out nice and laminate it and display in a central area {ours is on top the piano}
