Possible Ideas for Family Home Evening

  1. Use the Bringing Primary Home lesson and activity to learn more about this month’s Primary theme (pages 40–41).

  2. Role-play activities that are appropriate in different settings (school, the park, the store). Then read “Showing Respect” (pages 28–29) and talk about appropriate behavior at church. Make a list of how you can be more respectful at church.

  3. Celebrate your own Pioneer Day! You can read Elder Perry’s comments (page 20), “The Flame of Faith” (pages 18–19), or “Saving the Wheat” (pages 30–31) for inspiration. Talk about why the pioneers are important.

  4. Read “A Growing Testimony” (page 10). Use the plant analogy to explain why we need to constantly nourish our testimonies. You could set individual or family goals to strengthen your testimonies.
