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.

    Read “Come unto Christ” (IFC) by Sister Margaret D. Nadauld and talk about the many ways the Savior showed His love for us during His life on earth.

  2. 2.

    Hold up the picture and sing together “I Love to Learn of Jesus Christ (pages 10–11).

  3. 3.

    Make the flannel-board figures and use them to tell about “The Good Shepherd” (pages 38–39). Talk about the ways the Lord takes care of us, His sheep, in our day.

  4. 4.

    Read the testimony of Elder Charles Didier (pages 6–7). How did his faith in Jesus Christ give him the courage to choose the right?

  5. 5.

    Make the book and cut out the picture panel activity (page 15). As you read and discuss the contents of the little book, have a younger brother or sister slowly pull the picture panel through the heart frame to show that your faith is growing.

  6. 6.

    Read one or more of the following stories—“Marc’s Big Brother” (pages 8–9), “Two Is Better Than One” (pages 40–42), “On the Lord’s Errand” (pages 44–45), “Me, Living Like Jesus?” (pages 48–IBC)—and talk about some ways you can follow the Savior’s example.

  7. 7.

    Do one of the scripture activities (pages 5 or 24–25).

  8. 8.

    Make one of the recipes (page 27 or page 32) for refreshments.
