Family Home Evening Ideas

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):

  1. Prepare the flannel-board figures and use them to retell the story “The Resurrected Christ Teaches About Baptism” (pages 38–39). Then remove the poster, “Pure Joy” (pages 24–25), and hang it where you will see it often during the month.

  2. Invite an older brother or sister or a parent to read “A Sacred Promise” (pages 12–13) and talk about the covenant that we make at baptism. Make the mobile. Then read “I Choose to Be a Friend” (pages 16–18). How did Sue keep her baptismal covenant? What are some things you can do to keep yours?

  3. Tell the story “The Right Key” (pages 2–5). Talk about the important lesson Jennifer learned when she talked with Bishop Anderson. Then read together the experiences of Elder John M. Madsen (pages 6–7) and discuss the many blessings that can come through priesthood power.

  4. Ask a family member to memorize “My Father’s Hands” (page 15) and recite it for the family. Ask each family member to come prepared to share their feelings about their baptism or some other blessing that has come to them because of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

  5. Do one of the activities, “Books of the Book of Mormon” (page 11) or “Book of Mormon Code” (page 43), or play the “LDS ABC Game” (pages 23, 26).

  6. Make the “Baked Apples” (page 27) for refreshments.
