Guide to the Friend

Possible Ideas for Family Home Evening

  1. Read “Save Her!” (pages 2–3). Play the Safety Circle game together and talk about things your family can do to help others.

  2. As a family, read “The Story Rug” (pages 4–5). Talk about your ancestors and play the “Family Story Swap” game (page 6).

  3. Make a time capsule together (page 13). Collect pictures and mementos, and consider having each family member write their testimony on a piece of paper. Keep the time capsule in a safe place until you are ready to open it.

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

  5. Read “One Scoop at a Time” (pages 18–19). Talk about some things your family can do to fill your lamps with oil. Get a jar like Lisa’s family did and add a scoop of dried beans, rice, or corn every time your family does something to keep the commandments.
