Guide to the Friend


Possible Ideas for Family Home Evening

  1. 1.

    Read “Crash and Tell” (pages 8–10). Discuss the Internet safety tips with your parents or family. Make a plan to “crash and tell” if you can’t get away from an uncomfortable website.

  2. 2.

    Read President Thomas S. Monson’s message on pages 2–3. Talk about how the girl on the bus was an example. As a family, complete the word search on page 26 and recite the sixth article of faith together.

  3. 3.

    Read “Healing among the Zunis” (pages 20–21) or “Praying for David” (pages 44–45). Healing is one kind of miracle. Talk about times when family members have received blessings of healing.

  4. 4.

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