Possible Ideas for Family Home Evening

  1. Read “Getting Ready for Christmas” (page 2). What are some ways you can focus on the Savior? Make a list of things your family can do throughout the Christmas season.

  2. Spread Christmas cheer in your community through song! As a family, learn the words to “Silent Night” (page 7); then go sing it to your neighbors and friends.

  3. The Prophet Joseph Smith was born on December 23, 1805. Read “A Prophet Is Born” (page 22) and discuss how Joseph Smith helped restore the fullness of the gospel to the earth.

  4. As a family, read “Christmas at the Hospital” (page 28). Are there any ways you can serve others this Christmas season? Find someone in need and perform an act of service for them.

  5. Use the Bringing Primary Home lesson and activity (page 40) to learn more about this month’s Primary theme.
