Guide to the Friend


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 “A Special Pigeon” (pages 2–3). Talk about something you can do to help and serve another family in your ward.

  3. 3.

    As a family, read “Our First Family Home Evening” (page 26). Edward’s family made bracelets to remember the temple. Think of your own creative way to remember the temple in your family.

  4. 4.

    Read “An Unexpected Test” (pages 44–45). Discuss as a family what to do if you were in a situation where you had to defend your standards.

  5. 5.

    Fill out the Friend survey (page 47) and send it in to us! Talk about how you can use the Church magazines more in your family.
