Family Home Evening Ideas from Preach My Gospel
I recently discovered a great resource for missionary preparation for the littlest of future missionaries. Michelle of The Errand of Angels is in the process of developing Family Home Evening Lessons corresponding to each of the discussion principles in the Preach My Gospel Manual. The lessons are available to download for free in multiple formats from Michelle’s blog post called Preach My Gospel FHE Lessons Archive.
This is what Michelle has said in introducing these FHE Lessons she has made: “In the year before one of our children is baptized, we teach Family Home Evening lessons from Preach My Gospel, the same lessons that missionaries teach investigators, but adapted for our children and their needs / attention spans. We loved doing our FHEs this way when we were preparing our oldest son for baptism! Preach My Gospel is just amazing. It is the most accessible way of teaching and learning the gospel of Jesus Christ I have ever seen…We plan a FHE lesson for each principle–for example: lesson 1 is “The Restoration”, and the first heading at the beginning of the lesson reads “God is Our Loving Heavenly Father.” So that will be tonight’s lesson. It’s only 3 paragraphs long in the Preach My Gospel manual, but I’ve fleshed it out using old Sharing-Time ideas. “
The little future missionaries featured are on their way with parents teaching them about being great missionaries. I’m not sure we have inspired that in our children as well as we should, but we are certainly not going to give up now! Thanks for the link/resource.
