Family Home Evening: Articles of Faith

This week’s Family Home Evening lesson is a simple one about the Articles of Faith. The Articles of Faith are the basic beliefs of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in a concise and straightforward 13 points. Joseph Smith wrote them for publication in the Chicago Democrat newspaper at the invitation of John Wentworth. The kids are much better at memorizing them than I am, but I made a handy matching game that helps us all (yes, even me) remember the main points. Here’s my cheat sheet so you can make your own cards.

1st Article of Faith – Godhead

2nd Article of Faith – Adam

3rd Article of Faith – Atonement

4th Article of Faith – First Principles

5th Article of Faith – Hands

6th Article of Faith – Organization

7th Article of Faith – Gifts

8th Article of Faith – Word of God

9th Article of Faith – Revelation

10th Article of Faith – Ten Tribes

11th Article of Faith – Worshiping

12th Article of Faith – Law

13th Article of Faith – Praiseworthy

Whenever someone makes a match, they read or recite that Article of Faith. If I played this every few days, I might actually get them to stick in my head!

We played What If? for our activity and ate ice cream for our treat.

Family Home Evening: Spiritual Thoughts

The person in charge of the lesson for Family Home Evening wasn’t feeling well, so we all pitched in with this impromptu substitution by each of us preparing a brief spiritual thought.

Alma 30:59

In the story of Korihor, we learn the Lord uses the wicked to punish the wicked.

Helaman 12:3

Remember the Lord to avoid His displeasure.

13th Article of Faith

This honor code reminds us to look out for the good things in the world that bring beauty to our lives and fills them with virtue.

Watch you enemies to make sure they don’t enter your life.

Follow promptings.

We played a card game called Bluff for our activity and enjoyed Fantasy Fudge for our treat.
