Guide to the Friend


Possible Ideas for Family Home Evening

  1. 1.

    Read President Henry B. Eyring’s message “An Unshakable Foundation” (pages 2–3). Take a trip outside to look at the foundation of your own house or a nearby building. Then talk about why a good foundation is important and make a list of ways you can create your own “foundation of faith.”

  2. 2.

    Read “1-2-3! We’re Here to Help!” (pages 4–5). As a family, make thank-you cards for someone who has helped you with the things you need.

  3. 3.

    What do you know about your family history? Turn to “I Can Climb My Family Tree!” (page 22) and fill out the chart together.

  4. 4.

    Read the story “The Princess and the Monster” (pages 26–27). Talk about the importance of including everyone and then play a game together as a family.

  5. 5.

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