Suggestion for Family Discussion
Choose a recipe for a treat to prepare together. As family members follow the recipe, discuss why it is important to have all the ingredients in the recipe. When you are finished, read 2 Peter 1:4–8. Discuss why each attribute of divine nature is important in order for us to become like Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.
