Family Home Evening Ideas

This issue contains articles and activities that could be used for family home evening. The following are a few examples.

“The Power of the Word of God,” page 50: Read with your family the section entitled “The Sacredness of the Word” and discuss how the scriptures can be our iron rod. You may wish to invite family members to share an experience when they felt the power of the scriptures in their lives. Consider discussing Elder Teh’s challenge to study the scriptures regularly and how to apply that challenge individually and as a family.

“Bitter and Sweet Plums,” page 54: Read this short article as a family and discuss how Jennifer’s positive, friendly attitude affected Heather’s. Discuss how a positive attitude can create opportunities for learning and growth in our lives and the lives of those around us.

“The Blessings of Tithing,” page 60: Consider sharing one or more of the stories gathered here about the blessings members received as they paid tithing. To further your family’s discussion, you may also want to review insights from President Howard W. Hunter (1907–95) regarding tithing in “Our Law of Tithing,” page 10.
