Family Home Evening Ideas

This issue contains articles and activities that could be used for family home evening. The following are a few examples.

“The Mission and Ministry of Jesus Christ,” page 18: Elder Russell M. Nelson shares five aspects of the life of Jesus Christ that we can emulate. Consider discussing these aspects and how to apply them. You may want to read a scripture story from the Savior’s life or watch a Bible video (biblevideos.lds.org) that portrays one of those aspects. You might conclude by bearing testimony of His life and ministry and singing “More Holiness Give Me” (Hymns, no. 131).

“What Is a True Friend?” page 52: You may wish to begin by asking, what is a true friend? Read Elder Robert D. Hales’s definition and discuss what kind of friends we should be. Consider relating an experience of a time when someone acted as a true friend toward you, and talk about attributes that can help family members be better friends to others.

“Celebrating Temples!” page 62: With your family, look at the pictures of the different ways children have celebrated the temple. Consider showing a picture of the temple nearest you and talking about why temples are important. Emphasize that only in the temple can families be sealed. You may wish to end by singing “Families Can Be Together Forever” (page 65).
