Helps for Home Evening

“Learning through Life’s Trials,” on page 27. After the lesson, you may want to invite family members to share experiences when a trial has blessed their life. You could conclude by discussing with family members what they can do next time they are faced with a challenge.

“The Law of the Fast,” on page 52. Consider making a family plan for the next fast Sunday. Decide when the family will pray to begin and end the fast. Discuss what you might fast for and how you are blessed by sharing your testimonies during the fast. If a family member cannot go without food or water, discuss other ways he or she can participate.

“The Value of Experiencing and Expressing Gratitude,” on page 44. As part of the lesson, consider starting a family gratitude journal. For example, before family prayers each night you could have each person share one thing from the day that they are grateful for and list these things in your journal. At the end of an appointed time period, such as a year, review the blessings your family has received.
