Family Expo April 4-5 designed to strengthen families

Brigham Young University's annual Family Expo will be held Monday and Tuesday, April 4-5, in the BYU Conference Center on campus.

The event's theme, "A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches," is designed to strengthen families and teach parents how to raise a righteous posterity.

Speakers — including Scott L. Anderson, Sheri L. Dew, George D. Durrant, Elder Cree-L Kofford (General Authority Emeritus) and Robert L. Millet — will discuss topics such as feasting on the word as families, making a case for virtue, family home evening, the Lord's law of parenthood and forgiving in the heart and home.

Family Expo will last each day from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with a lunch break from noon to 1:30 p.m.

Individual registration for the conference is $70 and registration for credit is $168. Married-couple registration is $105; student registration is $5 and is available only by calling (801) 422-8925. Free registration is available for BYU full-time personnel and their spouses.

Other participants can register online at ce.byu.edu/cw/cwfamily/2005/registration.dhtm. A fax number and mailing address for registration is also available at the web site.

Family Expo is sponsored by BYU Religious Education, the Alumni Association, KBYU and Continuing Education and the College of Family, Home and Social Sciences.
