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 symbol on the [original magazine] pages mentioned):

  1. 1.

    Make the flannel-board figures (page 43) and use them to tell Moses Teaches His People” (page 42). Discuss how important this prophet’s teachings are to us today.

  2. 2.

    Have another family member read Elder Bruce D. Porter’s testimony of the scriptures (pages 6–7).

  3. 3.

    Tell the story “The Experiment” (pages 2–5), and talk about how the scriptures help us in the situations we face today.

  4. 4.

    Read the example of Eric Jones (pages 40–41) and decide how you, too, can follow the Savior’s example.

  5. 5.

    Learn and sing together “As Though I Had Been There” (page 12).

  6. 6.

    Do one or more scripture activity (pages 23, 24–25, 36–37).

  7. 7.

    Make “Cherry Delight” or “Spinach Apple Salad” (page 22) for refreshments.
