For the Strength of Youth/My Gospel Standards

Here is a great Family Home Evening idea:

      Following the opening song and prayer each Monday night, add to your FHE agenda one standard from "My Gospel Standard" or one standard from "For the Strength of Youth". Your family can read them out loud together (this works good for "My Gospel Standards) or take turns having each person read one paragraph from each standard from "For the Strength of Youth" depending on the ages of your children. Then the next Monday, move on to the next standard. You can mark the standard you are on with a sticky note to keep track of your place.After several weeks, when you have finished going over all of them start over at the beginning.

This is a great way to help each family member keep these standards central in their lives and also helps initiate clarification and discussion of gospel standards in a safe family environment.
