“When Doubts and Questions Arise,” page 38: After reading the article, consider discussing as a family the difference between questions and doubts. Read accounts of people in the scriptures who had questions and what they did about them (for example, 1 Nephi 11; Ether 2:19–3:16; Joseph Smith—History 1:10–19; or the references under endnote 1 in the article).

You could ask a few family members to identify a few questions they have. Then use the scriptures, lds.org/topics, or personal experiences to find answers. Cultivating an atmosphere of openness and honesty in the home will help family members feel comfortable voicing questions as they arise.

“Getting Ready for Easter,” page 70: Before family home evening, you may want to write several everyday challenges on slips of paper. For example, “You start to feel angry when your brother won’t share his toys with you,” or “You notice that dad looks sad when he gets home from work one night.” Ask your children to take turns choosing a slip of paper, reading the scenario, and suggesting how they could be like the Savior in that situation. Introduce the Easter activity in this article and invite each of your children to accept the seven-day challenge to learn about Jesus Christ and follow His example.
