Guide to the Friend

Possible Ideas for Family Home Evening

  1. Read “Daniel’s Example of Prayer” (pages 32–33). How was Daniel a good missionary to his grandparents? In the October 2010 general conference, President Thomas S. Monson asked us to start preparing for a mission. What can you do to prepare for your mission? Have each member of the family sign the certificate on page 11 to encourage them to begin preparing now to serve the Lord.

  2. Read “Alexis Says a Prayer” (pages 20–21). How did Alexis overcome her fear of praying in front of her Primary class? Is there something that makes you nervous? How do you think Heavenly Father can help you overcome your nerves?

  3. Sing “Reverence Is Love” (Children’s Songbook, 31). Why is it important to be reverent at church? Read the poem “My Church” (page 27). Discuss how being reverent and taking care of your church building show respect for the Lord.

  4. Use the “Bringing Primary Home” lesson and activity to learn more about this month’s Primary theme (pages 40–41). Make the General Authority booklet in preparation for conference next month. You can use it to take notes on what the Lord has inspired His Apostles to teach us.
