“Family Home Evening Ideas,” Liahona, July 2017
“The Magic Wallet”: You might start off the family home evening singing “Choose the Right” (Hymns, no. 239) You could role-play choose-the-right situations with your family. For example, what would you do if you were tempted to cheat on a test or exclude someone from an activity? Personalize the circumstances to match your family situation.
“What Is a Family Council?”: To prepare for your own family council, you might create rules and goals for family councils. Ask everyone in the family to contribute. Rules and goals could include turning off electronics, listening to each other, talking about upcoming events, and making long-term family goals. Personalize your family council and make it enjoyable so that people will look forward to having family councils.
