Possible Ideas for Family Home Evening

  1. Read “What is a priesthood quorum?” (page 11). How can your family support the priesthood? Think of people you know who hold the priesthood or are preparing to receive it. Discuss the importance of the priesthood and ways you can support your local quorums.

  2. Have a family history night. As a family, talk about your heritage, perhaps sharing stories, traditions, or heirlooms. If you don’t know much about your family heritage, look on page 25 to learn how you can get started.

  3. Read “The Most Precious Gift” (pages 44–45). Do you or anyone in your family know someone who is serving a mission? This person could be a relative, a friend, or maybe a missionary who is serving in your ward. As a family, plan and carry out an activity to show these missionaries your gratitude.

  4. As a family, share your favorite talks or memories from past general conferences. If you have family traditions like those on page 22, feel free to practice them. Discuss the importance of conference and how to listen respectfully.
