March Gospel Study

March Gospel Study
I dug deep into my files and found some ideas for Family Home Evening for the year. The idea is that you have a value for the month that you work on as a family. You also have a symbol that will help you remember the value you are working on for the month. Then there is a scripture to read each day and ideas for family home evening lessons and activities. This is a very flexible plan and you can make it fit the needs of your family.

I am going to share these the end of each month with the ideas for the next month. This week, I am sharing the ideas for the month of March.

5. Make a special effort to plan family activities where all can participate at least once a week. These should be in addition to Family Home Evening. Try to do activities that don’t limit interaction. (Go out for ice cream, take a walk, visit a temple, go have lunch at the park or McDonald’s during Dad’s lunch break.)
