Purpose of this Family Home Evening: We are grateful for the words of Christ! We will feast upon them!
Song: A Song of Thanks (Children's Songbook pg. 20a)
Scripture: 2 Nephi 32: 3
"Angels speak by the power of the Holy Ghost; wherefore, they speak the words of Christ. Wherefore, I said unto you, feast upon the words of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will tell you all things what ye should do."
Gather some old food type magazines and as a family cut out as many foods as you can find. Have a long piece of paper that you can draw a table on. Each family member can take a turn gluing on a food for the feast, but in order to do so they must tell a story from the scriptures that they are grateful for and why. Some variations could include actual scriptures, personal experiences from studying the scriptures or how a family member reminds them of a scriptural hero/heroine.
Jacob 3: 2 "O all ye that are pure in heart, lift up your heads and receive the pleasing word of God, and feast upon his love; for ye may, if your minds are firm, forever."
