“Family Home Evening Ideas,” Friend, Dec. 1998, 7
If your parents ask you to help plan a family home evening, you may want to use an idea from the Friend. Here are some ideas in this issue that you may like (look for the FHE symbol on the [original magazine] pages mentioned):
Read together the Christmas message from the First Presidency (pages 2–3). Talk about what the gift of peace can mean to you.
Tell the story “May Christ Lift Thee Up” (pages 4–7), and discuss how each of you in your family can be happy from the inside out.
Plan a special Christmas lesson. Use the “Christmas-Story Figures” (page 8) to tell of the Savior’s birth. Then read “Priceless Gifts” (pages 16–17) and use the figures to talk about the gifts that come to us from Jesus and the gifts we can give Him in return. Resolve to give Him at least one of them this month.
As a family, do the activities on the “Christmas Advent Calendar” (pages 24–25, 27), beginning on December 1.
