Family Home Evening Ideas

If your parents ask you to help plan a family home evening, you may want to use an idea from the Friend. Here are some ideas from this issue that you may like (look for the FHE on the [original magazine] pages mentioned):

  1. 1.

    Using the flannel-board figures, tell the story of Josiah (pages 10–11). Talk about how the Holy Ghost touched his heart as he studied the scriptures.

  2. 2.

    Ask a family member to tell the story of Renee (“Stop!” page 15). Point out that the promptings of the Spirit helped to protect her.

  3. 3.

    Sing one of the songs about the Holy Ghost in the Children’s Songbook (see pages 105–107).

  4. 4.

    Ask one of your parents to share Elder James O. Mason’s story on pages 6–7 about studying the scriptures and receiving a testimony from the Spirit.

  5. 5.

    Make the treat on page 18.

  6. 6.

    Do some of the scripture activities on pages 24–25 and 36–37.

  7. 7.

    Ask a younger brother or sister to color the picture on page 17 and then hold it up as he/she recites the words to the song printed beneath the picture.
