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 in this issue that you may like (look for the FHE logo on the [original magazine] pages mentioned):

  1. 1.

    Ask a parent or an older brother or sister to share Elder Robert D. Hales’s testimony of the Savior on the inside front cover.

  2. 2.

    Tell the story “Mending Easter” (pages 2–5). Discuss what the Atonement of Jesus Christ has to do with repentance and forgiveness.

  3. 3.

    Use the story and flannel-board figures (pages 42–43) to tell how Jonah and the people of Nineveh all needed to repent and be forgiven.

  4. 4.

    Sing “Sacred Names of Jesus” (pages 34–35), or recite “In His Footsteps” (pages 48–IBC).

  5. 5.

    Bake the Polka-Dot Cookies (page 22) for refreshments.

  6. 6.

    Do one of the scripture activities (pages 11 and 26).
