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.

    Ask a parent to read “Bear Record of Him” (IFC) and talk about the five points of Sister Warner’s testimony. Why is each one important?

  2. 2.

    Read “Bearing a Testimony” (pages 2–4). Have each family member tell how he or she has shared his or her testimony during the past month. Help each other remember.

  3. 3.

    Make the flannel-board figures and use them to tell the story “Calling of the Twelve Apostles” (pages 14–15). Talk about the important responsibilities of an apostle. Try to remember the names of the Twelve Apostles currently serving.

  4. 4.

    Read “Bringing Home Old Spot” (pages 8–10), “Melissa’s Decision” (pages 32–34), or “Our First Family Fast” (pages 48–IBC). Invite family members to share times when they have fasted and prayed for help.

  5. 5.

    Learn about Richard and María Layme Huallpa of Villa Lipe, Bolivia (pages 20–22). What are some of the ways they are helping their testimonies grow stronger? How can you strengthen your testimony this week? Make the testimony wheel (page 47) for some ideas.

  6. 6.

    Do the activity “Jesus Spake unto Them” (page 5) or “What Would the Prophets Want Me to Do?” (pages 36–39), or make the “Finger-Fun Testimony Reminder” (pages 24–25).

  7. 7.

    Make “Fruit Crumble” (page 27) for refreshments.
