"Light In Our Vessels"

For our scripture clue today, we read in Ether Chapter 6: 3 & 10.   It is the chapter about the Brother of Jared when he was commanded to build barges to cross the sea.  After building them, he realized how dark they were inside.  So he asked God to touch some stones that they might have light in their vessels during their travels.     

"And thus the Lord caused stones to shine in darkness, to give light unto men, women, and children, that they might not cross the great waters in darkness .... and they did have light continually, whether it was above the water or under the water."

I am pretty sure the Brother of Jared would have been extastic about glow sticks.....which is what we used to "light our vessels".  I found some glow sticks at Target and each of the kids got to have a "glow in the dark bath tub" for our activity.  For obvious reasons, I did not take a picture of everyone in their "vessels".  But here are a few high quality photos for you to get the idea.

 They were absolutely THRILLED and took a REALLY REALLY long bath! 

I find it so refreshing how little children get so excited about the smallest things.
