Recently, the prophet Russell M. Nelson of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints made a special prophetic announcement. He said in an official statement to the media, “The Lord has impressed upon my mind the importance of the name He has revealed for His Church, even The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.” Read on to see why…
This may seem like a weird question, but do you have a favorite word? I’m not talking about a name or place, I literally mean a word. It could fun to say or spell. The meaning is not the important part! Razzmatazz is one of my favorites. Indubitably. Mojito. Thrum. All words that tickle my tongue and give me a little thrill. I love a good word game. Years ago I came across this great countdown on Ted McCagg’s blog: he made brackets for each letter and finally winnowed the word list down to the best word ever. Since the colder months are coming, I thought I’d turn this idea into a full blown family word game! It would be perfect to set up around the house during a long Thanksgiving weekend with family. Also great for a youth group or Family Home Evening.
This family night lesson and activity will help teach your family the importance of repentance. Using a small rock, you can show how little problems become bigger and more hurtful over time.
I created this friendship bingo family night lesson to help make the process of starting school and meeting new friends fun instead of scary. Change often creates opportunities for growth. A new school year or joining a sports team or club can be overwhelming for children. Teaching relationship building skills will help them feel confident instead of shy and nervous. I hope this lesson will be beneficial for your family!
Ministering has always been a part of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Jesus, as our perfect example, was a friend to all. He was inclusive and spent time to reach out specifically to individuals that needed love and care. He was a minster. He took good care of his friends and family. We can become more like him, as we learn how to minister as he did.
Teach your children to walk by faith with this fun family night activity. When we follow in the footsteps of the Savior, we can find happiness and peace.
Your family can translate these coded scriptures for kids in this FHE Activity about Seers and the Book of Mormon.
We did an activity to drive home the point that words can be used for good. It changed my life. I would never had suspected how my testimony would grow from a simple “children’s exercise.” I felt inspired to share it with our blog readers (YOU!) and hope that it will be as impactful in your homes as it was for me at our activity.

In the story of Alice and Wonderland, Alice comes to a fork in the road. She asks the Cheshire Cat, “Which way shall I go?” The cat asks her in return, “Where are you going?” Lost and wandering, Alice simply said, “I don’t know!” Listen to this wise council from Cheshire Cat, “If you don’t know where you are going, then it doesn’t matter which path you choose.”
Don’t wander through life like Alice. With a goal in mind, we are able to travel to the places where we want to go and achieve things that were never before possible. Think about where you want to be and who you want to be! Set goals that will take you there.

Not only are we going to create some artistic fun, we are going to build testimonies while we are at it! Your family will get to experience the difference between creating a life solo and creating a life with the help of God’s hands.
We may not always know when our friends or family are feeling sad. People are good at pretending and putting on a show of happiness. Remember, we don’t have signs up declaring to the world what troubles are going on inside. Here is a little object lesson that helps to demonstrate the need to show kindness always.
