Family Home Evening Ideas

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

“Priesthood Power—Available to All,” page 18: Before family home evening, read the four questions Sister Burton asks in this article. Bring a small lamp to family home evening (make sure it is unplugged). Have different family members try turning it on. Liken the power needed to operate the lamp to priesthood power. Plug in and turn on the lamp and discuss how we can all benefit from the light of the lamp, or the power of the priesthood. Have family members consider ways they have been blessed by the priesthood. You could begin memorizing the scriptures in Doctrine and Covenants 84 that Sister Burton asks us to memorize.

“Will’s Great Idea,” page 78: You could begin by singing “I Love to See the Temple” (Children’s Songbook, 95) or another song about temples. Read this article as a family and discuss why temples are important. Have each member of the family draw a picture of the temple, perhaps the one closest to where you live. Consider hanging up the drawings and the picture on page 79 in your home where they will be seen every day. Talk about how seeing a picture of the temple can remind us to make decisions that will keep us worthy to enter the temple.
