Possible Ideas for Family Home Evening

  1. Read President Henry B. Eyring’s message “A Heart Filled with Love” (pages 2–3). Talk about how you and your family can find ways to serve others. Do the love-notes activity together.

  2. As a family, read “The Ratings Rule” (pages 4–5), then use the “Following Family Rules” activity (page 6) to create rules to help keep your family safe and happy.

  3. Read “The Grump” (pages 28–29) and talk about how your family can be more charitable to others. Together, make the “Hang a Heart” craft (page 30) and give it to family members or friends that you love.

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

  5. Read “Bringing the Scriptures to Life” (page 47), then choose a scripture story to liken to your life. You can draw pictures or act out a scene from the scriptures to show how the story relates to you.
