Family Home Evening Ideas

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

Family home evening

“The Joy of Family History Work:” Elder Cook invites us to get started on family history work by holding a “Family Tree Gathering.” For your family home evening, consider using FamilySearch.org to record information, stories, and photos of your family. Elder Cook promises that “if you look beyond the bonds of time and mortality and help those who cannot help themselves, you will be blessed with more closeness and joy in your family and with the divine protection afforded those who are faithful in His service.”

Testimony Treasure

“Testimony Treasure:” When Sabrina realizes that her testimony is a treasure, she wants to share it with everyone. Consider helping your family recognize their own “testimony treasures” by discussing why they love the gospel of Jesus Christ, how it makes them feel, or how it applies to their daily life. You might have each person record his or her answers to these questions by writing them down or by using an audio recorder. Consider having each person choose someone this week with whom they can share their testimony treasure.
