What’s in It for You

    What’s in It for You

    Mutual Activity Idea

    • Create your own game of scripture bingo. Have each person make a card by writing the name of a New Testament book in each of 15 squares. Cut up the list of books, and draw the names out of a bowl. Try Book of Mormon names next.

    Personal Progress or Duty to God Idea

    • Go over your Personal Progress or Duty to God booklets with your parents. Plan how they can help you complete some of your goals. You may want to include more family members in working on your goals.

    Family Home Evening Idea

    • Try creating your own Line upon Line like the one on page 43. Take a verse of scripture, or perhaps several verses, and go through them word by word. Look up any difficult or unfamiliar words. Ask a member of the family to try to find a quote from the General Authorities about the scripture on the Church’s Web site (LDS.org). You might even write down on a poster what you have learned about that scripture. To include younger brothers or sisters, you might use illustrations or pictures when you can.
