Family Work

Presented by: Kami Huntzinger

Elder Neal A. Maxwell has said, “Work is always a spiritual necessity even if, for some, work is not an economic necessity.” As homeschoolers, we have the opportunity to work intimately with our children in many capacities, and this talk will specifically focus on the blessings and opportunities that come from working together as a family.
Family work helps to strengthen family relationships, instill character, and build teamwork. Important skills are taught, and talents are found and developed. Most importantly, a spirit of love and peace can be found in working together for common goals.
Our family has found many opportunities to work together, including running a small business. We have learned to rely on each other, to follow through on commitments, and to enjoy each other’s company while doing mundane tasks. It’s not always easy and we definitely have ups and downs. But every family can find the blessings in working together. We’ll talk about ideas and inspiration for implementing family work, overcoming challenges, and finding the blessings.


Kami Huntzinger lives in North Logan, Utah, with her husband and five children. She has been homeschooling for over twenty years. Each child has been a different and unique adventure, and that has been one of her favorite things about homeschooling. She and her family love to travel all over the world. They run Bees Brothers, a crazy science experiment that turned into a small honey business, in order to finance their hobbies. Kami has a degree in biology and chemistry and worked in science research before starting her family. She is serving as the LDSHE Youth Conference Director this year.
