    Family Home Evening Ideas

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


    Am I Going to Die? page 12: Having an understanding of the plan of salvation is integral to our eternal progression. You might study the plan by reading scriptures such as 2 Nephi 2:22–25; 9:10–11; Alma 34:32–33; 40:11–14; 42:5–15; or Doctrine and Covenants 76:30–113. You could create a diagram by taking turns drawing each part of the plan of salvation as it relates to each scripture (see page 54 of Preach My Gospel for an example of a diagram). You might also practice teaching the principles to each other so you can simply explain the plan of salvation to someone who has questions about it.

    Family History and Temple Blessings,” page 26: Have you accepted the temple challenge that the Renlunds refer to? (see pages 29 and 31). In the words of Elder Renlund, you are invited “to find as many names to take to the temple as ordinances you perform in the temple and to teach others to do the same.” And you can do it as a family! To learn more about the challenge, visit and discover some step-by-step family history tips. You could spend future family home evenings preparing names for the temple and teaching friends how to do their own family history.
