    Church Magazines in Home Evening

    I made a valiant attempt to read the Ensign, the New Era, and the Friend each month. However, I found myself falling sadly behind until my husband and I devised a plan. Each child was asked to give a synopsis of a story or article found in the magazine of his/her age group, while my husband and I each presented something from the Ensign. We did this at every family home evening and discovered it was a delightful way to keep abreast of the magazines. Our little three-year-old participated with a poem from the Friend, our ten- and eight-year-old daughters cut out pictures and paragraphs to present flannel board stories, and our teenager recounted what she read in the New Era.
