“Timing,” p. 10: Elder Dallin H. Oaks teaches that we must not only do what is right, but we must do it at the right time. Ask for examples from the scriptures or from family members’ lives that illustrate what can happen when individuals do—or do not—take the Lord’s timing into consideration.
“We Are Daughters of Our Heavenly Father, Who Loves Us,” p. 42: Discuss the questions Sister Susan W. Tanner poses: What if Heavenly Father doesn’t answer our prayers the way we hope He will? How can we know that He loves us? Relate the story of Sister Tanner’s niece Ashley, the story of Abinadi, or another similar story.
“The Little Engine That Could,” p. F2: Ask the children in your family if they know the story of “The Little Engine That Could,” as retold by President James E. Faust. Have one of them summarize the story. Talk about the attitudes of the three trains. Ask for specific examples of how the children can be like the little blue engine.
