Here is a wonderful object lesson for Family Home Evening.
At our Zone Conference our mission president's wife shared this. It's easy, effective and fun.
Materials: 2 oranges, one with the rind on and the other peeled. (Save the peelings)
Premise: Surrounding ourselves with good works - like this orange peel - will keep us close to Heavenly Father
Blessings on the food
Family Home Evenings
Fun with kids and grandkids
Reading scriptures daily
Allowing only G rated media into our homes.
Write the list according to you and your family. Each piece of the peeling represents acts things we do each day to keep ourselves close to the Spirit.
If we wrap ourselves in righteousness, we will find joy, positive energy as we live close to the Spirit.
If we allow ourselves to become vulnerable to the things of the world, we can drowned in negative energy, depression, and lose closeness to our Heavenly Father.
