Guide to the Friend

Possible Ideas for Family Home Evening

  1. 1.

    Use “Easter Footsteps” (pages 34–35) to learn about the last week of the Savior’s mortal ministry. Then read the account of Christ’s Resurrection in Luke 24:1–9. You can sing “Hosanna” together from pages 24–25 and talk about the importance of the Savior’s Resurrection.

  2. 2.

    Read together what President Dieter F. Uchtdorf said about the Savior’s Atonement (page 2). Take turns sharing your testimony or some of your favorite scriptures about Jesus Christ.

  3. 3.

    Read “Talk Time” (pages 8–9) and try one of the conversation games on page 10.

  4. 4.

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

  5. 5.

    Take turns reading together “Choose the Right Media” (pages 26–27). Talk about how your family can help protect one another from bad media.
