Family Home Evening Outline for: I will seek good friends and treat others kindly.

Welcome everyone to Family Night

Sing: "I'm Trying to Be Like Jesus" pg 78  Children's Songbook

Discuss any family business

Scripture: Mosiah 4:15 "
15 But ye will teach them to walk in the ways of truth and soberness; ye will teach them to love one another, and to serve one another."


Play to shot video "The Coat" found here.
Discuss what the little boy did in the movie.  Explain that when we show kindness for others we are also showing our love for Heavenly Father.

Talk something each family member can do specifically to show kindness to someone else.

Read: The "Friend" Section in the "For Strength of Youth Pamphlet".

Show everyone the the "Good Friend Printable" (see above).  Explain that when we choose good friends then they can help us make the right choices.  

Have each family member say a characteristic that they think would be found in a good friend.  Write each characteristic in marker around the "friends" on the printable.  Discuss each characteristic and why it would be important to have.  Then discuss how we need to also have these characteristics and be a good friend to others. (Some good friend characteristics could be: Loyal, Honest, Kind, Selfless, Good Listener, Good morals, virtuous, respectful) Challenge each family member to try to develop these characteristic so, they can also be good friends.

Bear testimonies on choosing good friends and treating others with kindness.

Close with a Family Prayer.
