Welcome to this week’s Family Home Evening! I’m glad you could join us!
Opening Song: Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam
Scripture: Enos 1:27
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.
- 1 Corinthians 2:5 – Have faith in God, not in the wisdom of man
- 7th Article of Faith – Summary of what we believe
- Isaiah 2:21 – Fear God
- Hebrews 13:4 – Marriage is good
- Mormon 7:9 – The gospel is a series of stepping stones
Activity: We made cards for upcoming birthdays.
Closing Song: Once There Was a Snowman
Treat: Chocolate Cookies
