Family Home Evening: Scriptures

Welcome to this week’s Family Home Evening! I’m glad you could join us!Family Home Evening Scriptures

Opening Song: Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam

Opening Prayer

Scripture: Enos 1:27

Lesson: Scriptures

Our instructor (my daughter) held up her scriptures and introduced them, “These are the scriptures. Use them!” She went on to say that they help us to ponder and apply the gospel to us personally. We were asked to open our own scriptures to a random page that was an actual scripture (as opposed to the topical guide or dictionary) and turn to the nearest page that was divisible by four. We were to read the forth full verse on the second column and think about why that verse is important and how it applies to us personally. We took turns sharing our scripture with the rest of the  family. Here’s some of what we came up with.

Activity: We made cards for upcoming birthdays.

Closing Song: Once There Was a Snowman

Closing Prayer

Treat: Chocolate Cookies

  1. While studying the word of God ponder how it applies to your life. Elder D. Todd Christofferson said: “You should care more about the amount of time you spend in the scriptures than about the amount you read in that time. I see you sometimes reading a few verses, stopping to ponder them, carefully reading the verses again, and as you think about what they mean, praying for understanding, asking questions in your mind, waiting for spiritual impressions, and writing down the impressions and insights that come so you can remember and learn more” (” When Thou Art Converted ,” Ensign, May 2004, 11)Your ability to understand the word of God will greatly increase as you personally apply the word of God to your life.

  2. In trying to figure out the meaning of the verse, Apostle Paul clearly advise anyone studying the scriptures. . . “not to go beyond what is written” . . . or not to go father than what is in the holy writings.
