To enhance this activity, perhaps your family has a pioneer heritage story you could tell. Or you might select one from Church magazine articles, available at http://www.lds.org/. As you reflect upon the pioneers’ sacrifices, you can focus on what’s most important in your own life. Our “wagon” experience taught me that most worldly possessions can be left behind at a moment’s notice, but we need our family and the gospel for our eternal journey.
