This issue contains articles and activities that could be used for family home evening. The following are a few examples.
For younger children, you could display objects that represent blessings of the Holy Ghost. For example, the Holy Ghost is like a blanket because He comforts us (see John 14:26), a compass because He guides us (see 2 Nephi 32:5), and soap because He can help us know when we have been cleansed through the Atonement (see 2 Nephi 31:17; 3 Nephi 27:20).
Appreciating the Savior’s Mission
One of our favorite family home evenings helped us better appreciate the life and mission of the Savior. We asked every family member to find scriptures about the Savior’s hands, eyes, feet, or mouth. Then we each shared those scriptures. For example, the Savior’s hands healed the leper, His feet walked on water, and His eyes wept at the tomb of Lazarus. We also discussed the wounds in Jesus’s body and the perfection of His sacrifice. Our discussion about the life and acts of Jesus Christ invited the Spirit and allowed each family member to bear testimony of our Savior.
