Family Home Evening Ideas

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

“Healing Hidden Wounds,”spage 14: Look at the questions on page 18 of this article and consider setting aside time to speak with each of your children individually about pornography. Since teenagers sometimes turn to pornography to cope with challenges, consider evaluating the example you set of how to cope with challenges and committing to your children to improve. For your lesson, you could decide on family computer rules and review general conference talks on virtue (such as Elaine S. Dalton, “A Return to Virtue,” Liahona, Nov. 2008, 78). You could also use family memorabilia—such as wedding photographs and baby blessing outfits—to share the stories of how virtue has blessed your life.

“Ten Secrets of True Popularity,” page 62: Consider using the principles in this article to teach your children about how they can make friends. You could create 10 word strips, one for each charitable attribute in the article (see also 1 Corinthians 13). Ask your children how each attribute can make them a good friend. Then identify someone in need in your ward or branch or neighborhood and come up with ways to serve that person. You might want to carry out your plan to serve immediately and begin by praying for charity as a family.
