Mutual Activity Idea

• Be some child’s angel like the author was in “Like an Angel” on page 9. Check with a local hospital, day care center, or shelter. Gather gently used toys from home and donate them as appropriate.

Personal Progress and Duty to God

• Read “The Family Secret” on page 36. Look through your Personal Progress or Duty to God book and find goals you could do that could involve your family. Make plans and go for it!

Family Home Evening Idea

• Read the Q&A on page 16 about letting your family know that you love them as the introduction to a family discussion on how each member of the family feels love. Have each member of the family tell what he or she enjoys most about every other member of the family.
