Guide to the Friend

Possible Ideas for Family Home Evening

  1. Read “We’re All Shoes” (pages 20–21). How do you treat people who might seem different? Sing “I’ll Walk with You” (Children’s Songbook, 140–41) and discuss how you can be kind to everyone.

  2. Read “Who Wants to ‘Play’?” (pages 24–25) and put on the play on pages 26–27. You could even invite another family over to watch your play.

  3. Read “Missionary Mail” (page 28) and write letters to a missionary you know. He or she could be a family member, a friend, or a missionary from your ward or branch. You could send photos of your family or draw pictures. Discuss as a family how you can be missionaries now.

  4. Read “A 10-Year-Old Teacher” (page 36). Draw the pictures from page 37 and present a lesson on the plan of salvation. You could place pictures out of order and have a volunteer put them in the right order. Then explain Heavenly Father’s plan.

  5. Do the Funstuf activity on page 43 as a family. Look up the scriptures and discuss how each picture shows a part of the restoration of the gospel in the latter days.
