Family Home Evening - Primary Theme and Scripture: I Can Follow Jesus Christ's Example!

Here's the Theme Card for July:
Here's the Scripture Card for July:

Opening Prayer:
Scripture:
Jesus said, "Come, follow me"
Luke 18:22
Song:
"Come Follow Me"
Hymn #116
Story:
 
 "Hike to Diamond Hill"
(Story is included in the PDF)
Ask the Following Questions:
Why did Suzanne need to follow Paul carefully?
Who are the people we should follow?
What got in Suzanne's way when she tried to get back on the path?
What are some things that keep us from following the Savior?
What can we do to avoid the rocks and stay on the path?
Activity:
Take a walk around the yard or through a park.
Place a picture of the Savior at the end of your hike.
Have your children follow in each of your steps.
If they step off the path, they will receive a rock. 
They will have to carry this rock and any others they may collect for the rest of the hike.
The rocks can become heavy or difficult to carry.
Remind your children that when we choose not to follow
the Savior, we are choosing a difficult path.
When you arrive at your destination you will come to the picture of the Savior.
This is a great opportunity to bear your testimony.
Take the the opportunity to teach them the importance of following the
example of Jesus Christ.
Closing Prayer:
Don't Forget to add to your Family Home Evening Journal!
