    Using the Liahona

    Family Home Evening Ideas

    This page can help you use the Liahona to enhance your teaching in the classroom as well as in the home.

    “Elders in My English Class,” p. 9: Invite family members to tell about times when they have been asked questions about Church teachings. Read Anette’s experience, and discuss what she did to share the gospel. Testify of the need to trust in the Lord as we share His gospel.

    “Personal Consecration,” p. 16: Make a list of the examples of consecration mentioned in the article. Ask family members to explain what they learned from these examples. Choose a principle of the gospel the family would like to be more committed to and plan ways to live this commitment.

    “The Twelve Apostles,” p. 26: Choose a few statements in the article that describe Apostles. Read each statement until the family guesses what is being described. You may want to show pictures of today’s Apostles (see a recent May or November issue of the Liahona). Read aloud portions of the article that tell about the role of an Apostle. Review the last three paragraphs, and testify of the promise in D&C 124:45.

    “Avoiding the Devil’s Throat,” p. F2: Make a line on the floor using string or tape. Place something just out of reach of a person on one side of the line. Ask him or her to pick up the item without crossing the line. Use this article to discuss how Satan tries to entice us to cross the line.

    “The Windows of Heaven,” p. F10: Display an item of clothing that would be too small for anyone in the family to wear. Invite family members to imagine what it would be like to wear that item. Read this story. Discuss the blessings of paying a full tithe. Share an experience of how paying tithing has opened the windows of heaven for you.
