“Family Home Evening Helps: A Buffet of Words,” Ensign, Dec. 2005, 61
One of our favorite family night traditions involves a potluck—not the food variety but a buffet of words. We take turns sharing stories and activities from Church magazines. To keep the discussion interesting, we try to avoid reading word for word. Instead, each family member chooses and reviews a favorite article in advance, then shares selected paragraphs or key ideas in turn. When a recent issue featured a song, one daughter chose to play it on the piano. Another daughter opted to have us play a game she found in the Friend. We’re excited to use the Church magazines in a variety of ways, and we’ve enjoyed inviting friends to join in our family fun.
