Family Home Evening Ideas
Look for the FHE symbol on the pages mentioned below.
Tell the story “Girlfriends and Gossip” (pp. 40–42). Why is it harmful to gossip about other people? Make a list of nice things you can say or do for people at school, in your ward, or in your neighborhood.
Read “The Winner” (pp. 14–16). Talk about why it is sometimes hard when someone else wins, even in your own family. Invite each family member to tell one thing he or she appreciates about the other family members.
Read “Mikey’s Gift” (pp. 34–35), and talk about other kinds of gifts you can give. Talk about how it feels when you do something nice for someone else.
