The Church has established two special times for families to be together.
The first is centered around the proper observance of the Sabbath day.
This is the time we are to attend our regular meetings together, study
the life and teachings of the Savior and of the prophets.
“Other appropriate Sunday activities include:
(1) writing personal and family journals,
(2) holding family councils,
(3) establishing & maintaining family organizations
for the immediate and extended family,
(4) personal interviews between parents & children,
(5) writing to relatives and missionaries,
(6) genealogy,
(7) visiting relatives & those who are ill or lonely,
(8) missionary work,
(9) reading stories to children, &
(10) singing Church hymns.”
The Importance of the Family



After this vision had closed, another great and glorious vision burst upon us;
for Elijah the prophet, who was taken to heaven without tasting death, stood before us,
and said: "Behold, the time has fully come, which was spoken of by the mouth of Malachi
-- testifying that he [Elijah] should be sent, before the great and dreadful day of the Lord
come -- to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the children to the fathers,
lest the whole earth be smitten with a curse -- Therefore, the keys of this dispensation
are committed into your hands; and by this ye may know that the great and dreadful
day of the Lord is near, even at the doors."    
Doctrine and Covenants 110:13-16
