Possible Ideas for Family Home Evening

  1. Have a family member put on a blindfold. Have him or her walk around the room, trying to avoid obstacles along the way. Then try again, but this time ask one family member to whisper directions. Discuss how the directions made it easier to avoid obstacles. Read “A Bump in the Road” (pages 4–5) and talk about ways the Holy Ghost can speak to you.

  2. Take the quiz “How Are Your E-Manners?” (pages 16–17). Act out some situations from the quiz to practice being polite with technology. Discuss the importance of being considerate and thoughtful.

  3. Read “Scriptures and Firewood” (page 23). Why was it so difficult for Elder Packer to chop logs? Try to draw a picture wearing mittens or oven mitts. Then choose a scripture to study. Talk about how taking time to carefully study the scriptures can help you understand them.

  4. Sing a loud song, clapping your hands and stomping your feet. Then sing a quiet Primary song and discuss how you feel afterward. Read “Shadows on the Wall” (pages 44–45) and talk about why it would be more difficult for the Holy Ghost to comfort you when you are being loud.
