For the Strength of Youth Family Home Evening - Standards Review!

The For the Strength of Youth Pamphlet
is one of the most important resources
you can have in your home.
The values taught will strengthen not only the youth,
but adults as well.
Tonight's Family Home Evening Lesson
is a REVIEW of these important standards.
Opening Prayer:
Opening Song:
"Do What Is Right"
Scripture:
Message from the First Presidency
(Found on pages 2-3 of the For the Strength of Youth Pamphlet.)
Our beloved young men and women,
we have great confidence in
YOU!
You are choice spirits who have come forth in this day
when responsibilities and opportunities, as well as the
temptations, are the greatest.
You are at the beginning of your journey through mortal life.
Your Heavenly Father wants your life to be joyful and to
lead you back into His presence.
The decisions you make now will determine much
of what will follow during your life and
throughout eternity.
Because the Lord loves you, He has given you commandments
and the words of prophets to guide you on your journey.
Some of the most important guidelines for your life are found
in this pamphlet.
We testify that these principles are true.
We promise that as you keep these standards and live
by the truths in the scriptures,
You will be able to do your life's work
with greater wisdom and skill and bear trials with
greater courage.
You will have the help of the Holy Ghost.
You will feel good about yourself and will be a
positive influence in the lives of others.
You will be worthy to go to the temple to
receive holy ordinances.
These blessings
and many more
can be yours.
We pray for each of you.
May you keep your minds and bodies clean
from the sins of the world
so you can do the great work that lies before you.
We pray that you will be worthy
to carry on the responsibilities
of building the kingdom of God and preparing the
world for the Second Coming of the Savior.
The First Presidency
Activity:
The Distributions Center has the
For the Strength of Youth Pamphlet
FOR FREE!
They also have a condensed card for wallets.
That's FREE too!
Give everyone in your family a copy of their own.
Each of the values in the pamphlet has a summary.
For the Strength of Youth
Mix and Match
You will have 18 Topic or Value Cards
and 18 Summary Cards.
Lay all of the topic cards on the table.
Read each of the summary cards as a family and place it
next to the matching value.
This will give you the opportunity to discuss and review
each of the values found in the pamphlet.
Read the letter from the First Presidency after the activity.
Challenge family members to
live by these standards.
Have them think about the music they have on their ipods.
Is it appropriate?
Do they need to remove any of the inappropriate songs.
What about the movies you have in your home.
Are the messages uplifting?
If not . . . NOW would be a great time to get rid of them.
Here's the PDF:
Closing Prayer:
Don't Forget to add to your FHE Journal!
I added a copy of the
For the Strength of Youth Pamphlet
to ours.
"Good Night!"  I almost forgot the TREAT!

I would love to have this idea, I have been thinking that my 9 yr old needs to start learning what is in this manual. I can not find the link however, am I just having a day or was there a problem loading it? Thanks for all you do, I love seeing what inspiring ideas you have for us.

Hi I am trying to put your day keeper stuff into excel so I can put it on my Ipad. Can you tell me what font you used? And would it be hard to switch your files to excel?
Thanks

Hello Anonymous, please reference this link when wanting to use PDF's on your ipad.

As far as the font goes, it is one that we actually use as our company and keep it as our copyright stuff. But we are so glad that you have enjoyed everything that Tricia has done so far! I thought the link was very helpful with how to use your ipad and pdf's in general.
