    Helps for Home Evening

    “Follow the Prophet,” on page 18: Summarize the article for your family. You may want to read the last section of the article, “Learning to Listen to the Prophetic Word.” Review the phrases that Elder Bennett says can help us discern the direction prophets give us. Invite family members to be attentive to the prophets’ counsel in general conference next month and to listen for these phrases. Consider closing with your testimony of the blessings we receive by following the prophet.

    “Have I Done Any Good in the World Today?” on page 34: Consider opening with the song “We Thank Thee, O God, for a Prophet” (Hymns, no. 19). Read the article as a family or select your favorite sections beforehand to read. Ask family members what they learned about President Thomas S. Monson that they didn’t know before. Hand out sheets of paper and ask everyone to write down how they know that President Monson is the living prophet today. Invite family members who haven’t gained this testimony to seek after it through sincere prayer. Close by singing “Have I Done Any Good?” (Hymns, no. 223).
