For the Strength of Youth Family Home Evening: Friends!

This little booklet is AMAZING!
The For the Strength of Youth booklet
is not just for the youth . . . the standards set in
this book can provide a life-long safety net for every age,
when we apply it to our lives.
If you don't have it as a part of your
Family Home Evening Kit,
you are really missing out.
You can get it at the Church Distribution Center for FREE!
They even have a condensed card for your wallet.
I found a great Family Home Evening Book using the
For the Strength of Youth Values for younger children.
It's called:
Before They Turn 12
By: Deborah Pace Rowley
Now for the actual Family Home Evening Lesson!
The Topic is:
"Choose your friends carefully.  They will greatly influence how you think and act, and even help determine the person you will become.  Choose friends who share your values so you can strengthen and encourage each other in living high standards.  A true friend will encourage you to be your best self."
(Quote taken from the For the Strength of Youth Booklet under Friends.)
