Possible Ideas for Family Home Evening

  1. 1.

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

  2. 2.

    Read President Dieter F. Uchtorf’s message in “Remember the Forget-Me-Not” (pages 2–3). Talk about ways you can help others feel loved. As a family, write notes to family members and friends telling them why they are special to you.

  3. 3.

    As a family, read “Megan’s Lambs” (pages 4–5). Then read John 10:1–30, where Jesus Christ tells us He is the Good Shepherd, who knows how to take care of us. Use the craft activity on page 23 to make the scripture sheep to remind you of Christ’s love for you.

  4. 4.

    Read “The Hidden Message” (pages 28–29). Discuss what you can do if you are ever being bullied.

  5. 5.

    Get ready for general conference next month by reading “A Message for Michael” (pages 44–45). As a family, plan what you will do to make sure everyone can get the most out of conference.
