Possible Ideas for Family Home Evening

  1. Read “Helping Feed the Savior’s Lambs” (pages 2–3). How is Jesus Christ like a shepherd? How are people like lambs? Color the pictures on page 3 as you discuss ways to feed the Savior’s lambs. Younger children could complete the activity on page 34.

  2. What talents do you have within your family? Read “Making a Difference” (pages 8–9). Ryan didn’t feel like he could write well, but he could draw well. Take turns sharing observations about each family member’s talents. You could write down what your family members say about you in your journal.

  3. Read “How can I be a missionary now?” on page 11. Then read about young member missionaries on page 13. Make a goal with your family to share the gospel. You could write your testimonies in copies of the Book of Mormon and give them away, invite friends to church, or invite another family over for family home evening.

  4. Hold your own family art exhibit! Encourage each family member to create a work of art relating to the topics listed on page 39. Display the artwork for a week. Then encourage your children ages 5–12 to enter the Children’s Art Exhibit.
