What makes family home evening successful?

Start and end with prayer. This invites the Spirit, increases love, and teaches your family how to pray.

Learn from the scriptures and the words of latter-day prophets to help your family live the gospel.

Add music, such as hymns and Primary songs, to create an atmosphere of love, peace, and joy.

Make it fun by playing games, acting out scripture stories, and making treats. Keep the atmosphere light and loving.

Be consistent. Monday nights are set aside by the Church for family home evening. If that doesn't work, find a night that does.

Add variety. Help a neighbor in need, hold a lesson at the park, or go for a walk as a family.
