Celebrating Family Home Evening
In 1915, latter-day prophets counseled us to set aside an evening a week for our families (see “100 Years of Family Home Evening,” Ensign, Apr. 2015, 80). It was called “home evening” at first—a time to learn the gospel and have fun together, while strengthening our earthly and eternal connections.
One hundred years later, family home evening continues to help us build families that will last for eternity. Prophets promise that through it, greater faith and spiritual strength will grow in our hearts, and greater protection, unity, and peace will abide in our homes.
We all belong to a family on earth and are part of the family of our Father in Heaven. Wherever we are in the world and whatever our situation in life, we can celebrate and participate in family home evening.
