Teaching Children and Families about the Constitution

Constitution Day is today (Monday, September 17th). What a great opportunity to teach your family more about the Constitution and the principles of Liberty. In 1987, under the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ leadership of Ezra Taft Benson, Gordon B. Hinckley, and Thomas S. Monson (late and living prophets of God), an insert was included with the Ensign, an LDS magazine for those of all faiths, titled: “Family Home Evening Lessons for the Bicentennial of the Constitution

Constitution

Our Dear Brothers and Sisters:

On September 17, 1987, we commemorate the two-hundredth birthday of the signing of the United States Constitution. The group of inspired men assembled for that convention produced the document that the Prophet

Joseph Smith referred to as “a glorious standard” and “a heavenly banner.”

In commemoration of this important event, we are providing this booklet, which contains three family home evening lessons, activity ideas, and a copy of the Constitution. We encourage you to prepare and teach each lesson prayerfully so that family members may feel the divine significance of the Constitution in their minds and hearts.

Faithfully, your brethren,

The First Presidency

(Ezra Taft Benson, Gordon B. Hinckley, Thomas S. Monson)
