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.

    Cut out the flannel-board figures (pages 34–35), and tell the story of the Creation. Talk about the many things we have to be thankful for.

  2. 2.

    Tell Elder Ronald E. Poelman’s lesson “Tithing: A Privilege” (IFC). How much does Heavenly Father ask us to return to Him for all He has given us? How much tithing should you pay this month?

  3. 3.

    Have another family member tell the story “Thomas’s Prayer for Peace” (pages 36–38). Discuss what a great blessing prayer can be.

  4. 4.

    Teach your family your favorite Primary song and sing it together at least twice. Music is also a great blessing.

  5. 5.

    Do one of the scripture activities on page 11, 23, or pages 24–25 and 47.

  6. 6.

    Prepare “Sugar ’n’ Spice Peaches” (page 22) for refreshments.
