For tonight's Family Home Evening the topic in which I have chosen is:
Fun Family Activities
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.
Scripture: Read: D & C 24:25-28
Family Home Evening Instruction:
"Play Together, Stay Together" , these are the words you would find if you visited the webpage, "Happiness in Family Life: Activities" . So for tonight's family home evening is going to focus on what kind of activities we would like to fit in this summer. With summer winding down, it seems to be crunch time. I plan on doing this for each season with my family. I've noticed as we spend time out and about together, our relationships are strengthened and memories are developed.
The plan is to gather together and ask each family member what are the things they would like to do this summer. Then make a plan on the calendar of when to do them. Above I have provided a couple printables that could be used.
It would also be a good time to reflect on the things you have already done this summer as a family. What were some of the favorite activities.
We will finish with this quote, "Families that play together stay together, especially when their play is uplifting and wholesome. Family vacations, holidays, birthday celebrations, and other activities build strong bonds and feelings of self-worth. The phrase “Remember when we…” is sure to bring love and laughter in the years to come." ("Happiness in Family Life: Activities" )
Close by sharing your testimony.
Close with a Family Prayer.
