    Family Home Evening Ideas

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

    “Self-Reliance and Gospel Learning”: To illustrate the importance of gaining your own spiritual light, consider this activity. Turn off the lights and ask family members to draw a picture. Have someone with a flashlight or candle use it only for their own picture. After a few minutes, turn the lights back on. Talk about the difference in being able to complete the task and then discuss the principles found in the article.


    “Being Like Shiblon”: Who are your favorite people in the scriptures? Consider playing “scripture charades” or “scripture pictures.” Act out a scripture story or draw it on a piece of paper without using any words. Have family members guess the scripture story or people involved. You could then read about these people in the scriptures and discuss why you admire them. What characteristics of theirs do you want to develop?
