At our house and millions of others around the globe, Monday nights are reserved for family. A Family Home Evening!
I love John Bytheway. If you are not familiar with him you should check him out on youtube. He is an inspirational/motivational speaker who is the author of many books and has a hilarious way of explaining things. He also does a spot on Barney Fife impression!
