For tonight's Family Home Evening the topic in which I have chosen is:
Making Preparations to Get the Most Out of General Conference
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.
Invite a member of the family member say the prayer
Discuss any family business
Follow-up with last weeks FHE.
Family Home Evening Instruction:
Imagine you are in class and the teacher says, "Okay, today I am going to give you some information that will be essential for you to know for your test." She goes on to say, "You will need to write down this information I give you because it is very detailed and you will not be able to just remember it." You suddenly realize that you were so busy this morning thinking about a fun party that you friend was going to have that day, that you completely forgot to bring some paper and pencil with you. You realize you are unprepared.
Now, think of it this way, in less than two weeks, you will be listening to the prophet, apostles and other church leaders. They will be prepared to share with you guidance and direction from your Heavenly Father. This guidance and direction is essential to you safely making it through the tests of this mortal life. Are you prepared to receive the direction and guidance? Are you prepared to receive the personal revelation that your Heavenly Father would like to give you?
Invite each family member to share ways they can prepare for General Conference. Give each family member the paper, "Preparing for General Conference".
Invite family member to use this paper to track their preparations for conference. Invite them to fill in the circles each day they say their prayers and read the scriptures. Invite them to think of questions they have and write them down. Then invite them to also use the paper during conference to write down any answers or personal revelations they receive.
Close by sharing your testimony.
Close with a Family Prayer.
