Volume 37 Number 6
The Ensign invites you to share your testimony of family home evening. What kinds of lessons and activities have generated love and positive behavior? How do you successfully have family home evening with young children, with teenagers, with no children, or when family members are separated by distance? Please send us your ideas and success stories, labeled “FHE,” by July 15.
We also welcome other submissions that show the gospel of Jesus Christ at work in your life. Publication criteria are posted at www.lds.org under Gospel Library.
Send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org or Ensign Editorial, 50 E. North Temple Street, Room 2420, Salt Lake City, UT 84150-3220, USA. Include your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, ward (or branch), and stake (or district). Due to the volume of submissions, we cannot acknowledge receipt. Authors whose work is selected for publication will be notified. If you would like your material returned, please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope.
Teaching—even without a formal teaching assignment. After reading “Teaching and Being Taught” (p. 36), attend your next meetings prepared to share your insights. Consider how your learning is enhanced by your own reflection and by others’ comments.
Organizing family home evening. After reading “It Made Us a Family” (p. 64), talk with your spouse or children about possible themes for future family home evening lessons. You can use the Church’s online resources to prepare these. From www.lds.org select Prepare a Lesson; then explore reference materials listed under Home and Family.
Recognizing the Atonement in your life. After reading “Gratitude for the Atonement” (p. 15), think about what the Savior’s sacrifice means to you. It may help to record your feelings in a journal.
Look for articles on:
Facing the future with faith—even amid frightening world events.
Helping youth understand the sacred nature of our bodies.
Honoring the Mormon Battalion.
