Helps for Home Evening

“T-I-M-E Spells Love,” page 12: Review the article, giving attention to the ways each family implemented changes to make family time a priority. Are there specific ways your family could show greater love for one another by spending more time together? Invite family members to share their ideas. Consider planning an outing or activity together as a family. It could be as simple as a picnic at the park or a game night at home.

“Be of Good Cheer: Choosing Happiness,” page 56: Discuss the two false assumptions outlined in the article. Consider asking the following questions: Why do righteous people experience tribulation? How can we find joy even when we are going through hard times? Consider sharing an experience of when you were able to “be of good cheer” through a difficult time.

“Getting Out of Debt—for Good,” page 62: After reviewing the article, reread this quote from President Hinckley: “I urge you … to look to the condition of your finances. I urge you to be modest in your expenditures; discipline yourselves in your purchases to avoid debt to the extent possible.” Discuss the importance of following the counsel of prophets to get and stay out of debt. If you have children, consider discussing how they can start making good financial decisions now to avoid excess spending.
