Lehi's Dream

The other night we were reading about Lehi's Dream, so we decided to do a Family Home Evening about what holding to the rod means.  Jared had a key chain little iron rod that we got at Deseret Book a while ago.  We turned off all the lights, and told Paul we wanted him to get from our bedroom to the living room couch (where I was) by himself.  (We made sure there was nothing for him to trip on .;-) ) Once he got to the couch, Jared had him hold on to "The Iron Rod" and guided him around our dark house, to where I was waiting with an apple.  After he had a bit of apple, we talked about how much easier it was to find mom when he was holding on to the iron rod.  It was simple, but memorable for the boy, and he wanted to have dad guide him around the rest of the night.
P.S. I can't take credit for this, it was all Jared's idea.
