Feasting Upon the Word- Thanksgiving FHE

Image courtesy Creative Commons License by floodllama Nov. 2008

Purpose of this Family Home Evening: We are grateful for the words of Christ! We will feast upon them!

Opening Prayer

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."

Song: For Thy Bounteous Blessings (Children's Songbook pg.21b)

Closing Prayer

El Presidente- Thank you! We also had a fantastic time. My favorite part was seeing my daughters react to my question, "Is feasting upon the words of Christ ripping pages out of the Book of Mormon and eating it?" They looked at me like I was insane, but in turn it really got them thinking.
