Family Home Evening Ideas

This issue contains articles and activities that could be used for family home evening. The following are two ideas.

“Becoming a Preach My Gospel Missionary,” page 46: Consider discussing as a family the five characteristics of Preach My Gospel missionaries. Then try practicing the principles. You could briefly review a section of Preach My Gospel together and give different family members short turns to practice teaching parts of the missionary lessons while other family members pretend to be investigators. You could discuss the challenges of missionary work and brainstorm ways to develop the characteristics described by Elder David A. Bednar.

“Be Strong, Be Healthy, Be Smart,” page 52: After reviewing Elder Adrián Ochoa’s article, consider planning an activity that allows your family members to be physically active together. You might play a sport or take a walk. Make sure to cater your activity to the ages and abilities of the family members (you could ask your older children to help the younger children complete the activity, for example). After your activity, discuss as a family the benefits of a physically active lifestyle. You might also plan ways to continue working as a family to follow our living prophets’ counsel to care for our bodies.
