“Family Home Evening Ideas,” Liahona, December 2016
“Preparing a Place for the Lord”: Bishop Caussé reminds us of our responsibility to prepare for the Savior’s coming. One way to prepare a place for the Lord is by helping people who need a home. Consider volunteering at a homeless shelter, gathering supplies for refugees, raising funds to contribute to the Church’s humanitarian fund, or getting involved with service activities in your community. You might also discuss long-term ways that you can serve the displaced, such as by fostering friendships.
“How can I feel closer to the Savior?”: Jesus Christ certainly is the reason for the season, but you might consider ways that you can remember the Savior’s example all year long. You could brainstorm ways to create a more Christ-centered home, like displaying a picture of the Savior in your house, memorizing weekly scriptures about the Savior, or taking extra care to prepare for the Sabbath day. Create plans to implement your ideas and record in your journal how your efforts have helped you draw closer to Christ.
