Family Home Evening Ideas

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

Social interaction

“Not of the World”: Consider reading Elder Perry’s experience of deciding to hold a glass of milk at business gatherings. As a family, discuss creative ways to be in but not of the world. For example, what could you do if a group of friends decides to watch an inappropriate movie or view pornography? How could you respond to someone putting down your beliefs about Joseph Smith, marriage, or the law of chastity? As you answer these questions as a family, keep in mind Christ’s example.

“A New Feeling”: After reading the article together, you could discuss how the Holy Ghost speaks to us. Use scriptures such as Galatians 5:22–23 (gives feelings of love, joy, peace, patience, meekness, gentleness, faith, hope); John 14:26 (teaches truth and brings it to remembrance); Alma 19:6 (replaces darkness with light); Moroni 10:5 (reveals truth); D&C 6:14–15 (enlightens the mind); 8:2–3 (gives ideas in the mind, feelings in the heart). Consider sharing personal experiences of when you felt the Holy Ghost.
