Oaks, Mary Ellen Edmunds, John Bytheway, Paula Fellingham, Mindy Gledhil and Daniel K. Judd—will discuss topics such as the overextended family, the second-mile family, the blessings of obedience, the dangers of overzealousness, humor in the home and how to teach and show kindness in the home.
BYU's Family Expo is sponsored by the School of Family Life, Religious Education, the Alumni Association and the Division of Continuing Education.
