Helps for Home Evening

“Temple Service and Unexpected Blessings,” on page 24: Summarize the article for your family, emphasizing the blessings the temple workers received as they served in the temple. Ask family members to share how they have been blessed by the Lord’s temples. Encourage children who have not had the opportunity to enter the temple to prepare now to enter.

“Everybody Knows Bleck,” on page 64: Consider singing “Do What Is Right” (Hymns, no. 237) as an opening song. Read or summarize the story about Bleck. Ask family members if they have an experience they would like to share about a time when they had to make a tough decision about whether to pursue one path over another and what consequences came from the decision they made. You may want to conclude with the quote by President Thomas S. Monson.

“Thy Will Be Done,” on page 48: Read and discuss the story with your family. Invite family members to see their trials as a way to better align their will with Heavenly Father’s. If appropriate, you may wish to provide an opportunity for family members to bear testimony of the power of the Atonement.
