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.

    Using the flannel-board figures, tell the story of Abraham and his covenant with the Lord (pages 34–35). Talk about what this covenant means to us as members of the Church.

  2. 2.

    Ask your mom or dad to report on the ways the children helped during the building of the Vernal Temple (pages 8–10); then talk about the importance of temples and temple covenants.

  3. 3.

    Tell the story of “Marcus’s Promise” (pages 2–5) and talk about the promises we make when we are baptized. What are some ways we can keep those promises?

  4. 4.

    Make a treasure chest and prepare the blessings activity (pages 24–25) to do as a family. At the end of the month, review all that your family has to be thankful for.

  5. 5.

    Do the scripture activity on covenants, “Signs of a Covenant” (page 13).

  6. 6.

    Sing your favorite song and make your favorite recipe from a past issue of the Friend.
