Guide to the Friend

Possible Ideas for Family Home Evening

  1. There are lots of different ways to be a missionary! Read “Be a Missionary Now” (page 10). Talk about ways to share the gospel with others over the week or practice bearing your testimonies.

  2. Talk as a family about how to receive comfort during scary times. Read “Special Witness” (page 17) and discuss the ways Elder Russell M. Nelson advises to replace fear with peace.

  3. Read “Take the Lead!” (pages 24–25). Talk about what it means to be a good example to others. Consider a leadership trait from the article to work on over the week.

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

  5. Read “Dear Class” and “Help Stamp Out Bad Language” (pages 44–45). Discuss the need to refrain from profanity and crude language. Print out copies of Ethan’s pledge, and have everyone take the pledge to avoid bad language.
