Guide to the Friend


Possible Ideas for Family Home Evening

  1. 1.

    Sing the song “Choose the Right Way” (Children’s Songbook, 160–61) and read “Choosing to Choose the Right” (pages 4–5). Discuss the choice Abbey had to make. Sometimes choosing the right is hard to do. Why is it so important to Heavenly Father that we do what is right?

  2. 2.

    Read “Jana’s Good Example” (pages 28–29). How was Jana a good example to Trevor? Have each person tell one way another family member sets a good example. Make a goal to be a good example during the next week. Have each family member report back at the next family home evening.

  3. 3.

    In the October 2010 general conference, President Monson talked about the importance of missionary work and serving a full-time mission. Read “I Can Be a Missionary Too” (pages 32–33). How does Brett find a way to prepare himself to serve a mission? How can each member of your family either prepare for a mission or perform member missionary work?

  4. 4.

    Use the “Bringing Primary Home” lesson and activity to learn more about this month’s Primary theme (pages 40–41).
