Guide to the Friend


Possible Ideas for Family Home Evening

  1. 1.

    Go through your toys and clothes. Do you have any you don’t use? Maybe you can donate them to a charity, just like the girls in “Presents for Princesses” (pages 36–37).

  2. 2.

    Wilford Woodruff served many missions. Read some of his mission stories on pages 4–5. Learn mission stories from someone you know and illustrate or write down one of them.

  3. 3.

    Read “A Faithful Finish” (pages 8–9) and look at the lists on page 10. Pick one way you can take better care of your body this week.

  4. 4.

    Read “Matt and Mandy” (page 42). Do you need money for something you really want? With a parent, brainstorm things you can do to earn money and save up.

  5. 5.

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