For tonight's Family Home Evening the topic in which I have chosen is:
Living the Teachings of Jesus Christ Strengthens Me and My Family (November 2014 Primary Sharing Time Theme)
Preparation: I hope and pray that you can use these ideas as a guideline and adjust them to the needs of your own specific family. Our prophet President Monson says, "We cannot afford to neglect this heaven-inspired program. It can bring spiritual growth to each member of the family, helping him or her to withstand the temptations which are everywhere. The lessons learned in the home are those that last the longest." On Lds.org there are resources available in helping to make your Family Home Evenings successful, here is a link to that site on Family Home Evenings.
Have a member of the family member say the prayerSing: "Teach Me to Walk in the Light", Children's Song Book pg 304
Discuss any family business
Follow-up with last weeks FHE.
Scripture: Read: “Happiness in family life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ” (“The Family: A Proclamation to the World”).
Family Home Evening Instruction:
The topic chosen in the Primary Sharing Time Theme for the month of November. This would be a great opportunity to have the primary aged children in your family help teach the lesson.
Here are some links to some ideas that could be used for the lesson:
November 2014 Friend Magazine: Living the Teachings of Jesus Christ Strengthens Me and My Family
Life's Journey To Perfection: LDS Sharing Time November 2014 Week 3: Repentance is a change of mind and heart.
Life's Journey To Perfection: LDS Sharing Time November 2014 Week 2: Prayer is reverent communication with Heavenly Father.
Life's Journey To Perfection: LDS Sharing Time November 2014 Week 1: "If ye have faith ye hope for things which are not seen, which are true” (Alma 32:21).
Use printable above and have family members write inside of the letters that form the word "Strengthens", the ways they can live the teachings of Jesus. Then discuss how these things can help strengthen each individual and their family.
Invite family members to bear their testimonies about how living the teachings of Jesus can strengthen the family.
Close with a Family Prayer.
