Tonight's Family Home Evening is taken from
and goes along with this month's Primary theme.
This is a great web site.

March Theme:
Heavenly Father speaks to us through His prophets


"What I the Lord have spoken, I
have spoken, ....whether by mine
own voice or by the voice of my
servants, it is the same."
(D&C 1:38)


Stand For The Right
Children’s Songbook, 159


There are many ways that Heavenly Father can talk to you. He can speak to you through the Holy Ghost. He can speak to you through the scriptures. One very important way that Heavenly Father talks to His children is through His living prophets. Tell your family that you are going to ask them a trick question. Ask, "How many prophets do we have on the earth today?" Explain that each member of the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles is sustained as a prophet, seer, and revelator. That means that we have 15 prophets on the earth! Explain, however, that the President of the Church is the only one who can receive revelation for the entire Church.

Display a picture of President Monson. Ask, “Why do we need a living prophet?” (So we can know what Heavenly Father and Jesus want us to do.) President Monson tells us what Heavenly Father wants us to know and do. When we listen to General Conference, it is as if God Himself is speaking to us. We can learn the way to obtain God’s promised blessings when we listen to our prophet. On a piece of paper, make a list of things our prophet and apostles have recently counselled us to do. As a family, choose one thing from your list and make a goal to do it together.


Don’t eat the prophet! - print off one set of cards from here: Put a piece of cereal or small candy on each card. Choose one person to go out of the room. While they are away, the rest of the group chooses one of the prophets, for example, "Spencer W. Kimball." Once you’re ready, start singing, "Follow the Prophet" or "Latter-Day Prophets". The person you chose to go away then comes back when they hear you singing. They then remove the cereal or small candy off each prophet card, one-by-one. Once they take the cereal or small candy off the designated card (Spencer W. Kimball in this case), everyone stops singing and says, "Don't eat the prophet!" They get to keep the cereal/candy they collected during their turn. Then, you choose a new person to go out of the room and start all over again. They loved this game!
