In Everything I Need to Know I Learned at Home, John Bytheway makes an inspiring and insightful connection between everyday phrases spoken at home and principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Using examples from his childhood and from raising his own children, he demonstrates how parents—especially moms—can use simple things to influence their families in profound ways.
I think John Bytheway has to be one of my all-time favorite speakers. In this little book we hear all those old cliche phrases that our parents told us as children only John Bytheway has turned them around in such a way that they apply to the gospel with our Heavenly Father reminding us that we need to do thing like, "Change our Attitude" and "Wash Our Hands" and "Clean Your Room" and more! You can never go wrong with a John Bytheway book and this message for Moms will not disappoint!
I LOVE Time Out Classic books!
Talks given at Time Out for Women have been preserved in a sweet, gift-size book.
Messages to be read and pondered and read again just when you feel you need some Time Out.
We learn so many things at home like:
*Wash your hands
*Change your attitude
*Clean your room
*Help your sister
*Ask your Dad
*Come and eat
Using scriptures and stories John Bytheway expounds these things to take on a spiritual learning.
"Every day, with all the little things you do in your home, in what may seem mundane, routine, and unexciting, you are actually teaching the gospel."
What have you learned at home?

A WONDERFULLY WONDERFUL BOOK!
In my opinion, mothers and fathers are the most amazing creatures on earth and yet there is no more challenging role on earth than being a parent. And when one takes on the most challenging job on earth, one is bound to get overwhelmed and discouraged on a regular basis. It can be a thankless and never-ending task. While a book like this can't take away the challenges, I believe it can help remind the reader of the great importance of what he/she is doing and they are doing more than they realize to help their children progress. Brother Bytheway takes some pretty common phrases that mothers say and explains how they very much apply to spiritual growth and development as well as mortal growth. I think my favorite section was where he took the statement, "Go ask your dad" and applied it to going to our Father in Heaven to ask for help and guidance. He reminds us that God will "run to" us and help us all he can. An inspiring and comforting read.
