Family Home Evening Ideas

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

Disciples and the Defense of Marriage

“Disciples and the Defense of Marriage”: Consider how you can be a “defender of marriage” in your own home. Have you ever had a conversation with your children about their future marriages or about how the Church’s view of marriage differs from the world’s? Have you ever shared your feelings about marriage with your children? Have you taught them the teachings of the prophets and apostles concerning marriage? During a family home evening, consider discussing these topics, using “The Family: A Proclamation to the World” (Liahona, Nov. 2010, 129).

Telephone communications

“Flood the Earth through Social Media”: After reading this article, discuss as a family how you will, as Elder Bednar says, “use social media to convey gospel messages,” following the guidelines he suggests. You could share quotes from General Authorities on your Facebook page or post pictures of your favorite scriptures to Instagram. Your family could even come up with your own hashtag to use when you post gospel-related pictures or quotes (just like the members who began the #LDSconf hashtag).
