“Family Night Fun,” Friend, September 2019
Song: “The Holy Ghost” (Children’s Songbook, 105)
Scripture: Galatians 5:22–23
Set a timer for one minute. How many different kinds of fruit can your family name?
Read “Paul’s Letters” (FJ4). One thing the Apostle Paul taught the people of Galatia was about the “fruit of the Spirit.” Like a tree that gives us fruit, the Holy Ghost can give us wonderful blessings.
Talk about what blessings come from the Holy Ghost. (For a hint, look at Galatians 5:22–23.)
What can your family do to invite the Holy Ghost into your home this week? Choose one thing to do. (See family manual, pages 151–152.*)
Have you explored Russia yet on page 14? Here’s how to make a Russian cake called sharlotka.
Preheat oven to 350ºF (180ºC). Peel and chop 5 large green apples into small pieces and put them in a greased 9x13-inch (23x33-cm) pan.
In a bowl, beat 4 eggs and 1 cup sugar for 2–3 minutes.
Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla. Then gently stir in 1 cup flour.
Pour the batter over the apples in the pan and bake for 40–50 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean when you stick it in.
Let the cake cool, and then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Enjoy!
Read “The Diabetes Dilemma” (page 4). Talk about different ways God answers prayers. He might not always take challenges away, but He will strengthen us in hard times! (See family manual, pages 143, 147.*)
If someone in your family is going to the temple for the first time, check out the special section on pages 31–38. Did you know that Paul mentioned baptisms for the dead in 1 Corinthians 15:29? (See family manual, page 140.*)
