Family week - day 5

Central to our family is our faith in God and Jesus as Jehovah's Witnesses.  I truly believe we would not have such a happy family if we didn't hold our religious beliefs.  We regularly attend weekly gatherings at our local Kingdom Hall and once a year we have a larger gathering or Convention, which for us is held at Rod Laver Arena - the place where they play the Australian Open Tennis.
Here is Miss Emily some 4 years ago burning off some energy outside at lunch break.

Reading the bible can be a daunting task, but it helps when you understand what you are reading.  The many bible study aids and attending the meetings helps to unlock some of the messages contained within the bible.

I often get asked about our beliefs - what we do and don't do.  There is an excellent summary found on the website listing beliefs of Jehovah's Witnesses and the reason from the bible.

Do you and your family hold certain beliefs?  Are you religious?  Did you know there is even a scrapbooking term called "faithbooking" which involves making an album about all of your religious events and recording your beliefs?
