This week for Family Home Evening is kind of a traditional week in our home. So the lesson is simple as is the activity. See today the kids and I will do loads of baking, Christmas baking. Then Family Home Evening will go as follows.
Opening Song: A Christmas one
We will tonight read the Christmas story from Luke 2 and discuss it with the children. We will ask them questions like.
Why is the birth of the Savior so important?
How does it make you feel knowing Heavenly Father sent Jesus Christ so that you can live with him again?
What sort of things can you do to show Heavenly Father and Jesus you love them?
And we will ask questions based on their answers too.
We will then explain how Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ gave us a great gift by Jesus coming to earth. Jesus Christ gave up his life for us.
What kind of gift can we give to Jesus this next year to show him how much we love him and all that he has done for us?
We then write down on a piece of paper a gift to the Savior, ie. say personal prayers every day, have personal scripture study. we then put them in a Christmas Stocking labeled Jesus. This is our gift to him for the next year.
After this we will watch the 1st Presidency Christmas Devotional which can be found here
Can I just take this time to wish each of you a Very Merry Christmas. May the Lord bless each of you and your families in the upcoming year. And may you find happiness and peace for many years to come.
