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.

“Young Adults and the Temple,” p. 10: Display a picture of a temple. Use the article to review the history, purpose, and blessings of the temple. Read aloud the last section of the article, and plan how you can reach your goals relative to temple attendance and family history work.

“Preparing for a Heavenly Marriage,” p. 16: Place a picture of a temple somewhere in or around your home. Write detailed instructions family members can follow that will lead them to the temple. Compare this activity to Elder Robert D. Hales’s advice on setting your eternal course and striving to find an eternal companion.

“Twice Rescued,” p. 32: Read aloud how Elder W. Rolfe Kerr’s father saved him from both physical and spiritual danger. Invite family members to share times when they were saved physically or spiritually. Relate these stories to the Atonement and how the Savior rescues us from physical and spiritual dangers.

“In the World but Not of the World,” p. 39: Review the story of Sodom and Gomorrah by using the first portion of the article, and discuss the stake president’s concern about worldly conditions. Role-play scenarios family members could encounter that would test their commitment to the gospel. Help them plan how they will handle these and similar situations in the future.

“The Lighthouse,” p. F2: Show a picture of a lighthouse, and discuss why lighthouses are so important to those at sea. Read each paragraph of the article aloud. After each paragraph discuss how having access to the lighthouse of the Lord can help guide you back to your heavenly home.
