Family Home Evening Lesson
Opening Song: “Mother Dear,” (Children’s Songbook, p. 206)
Opening Prayer: Mommy
And they rehearsed unto me the words of their mothers, saying: We do not doubt our mothers knew it. (Alma 56:48)
Have your family take turns sharing favorite memories about their mother or grandmother. Have each person give a one-sentence description of his or her mother or grandmother and write/draw these on another paper. If you have them, look at photos of the women in your family.
Why do we have mothers? Why are mothers so special? Did Jesus have a mother? (Show gospel Art picture kit picture 242) How did he treat his mother? How can you (child) show your mother you love her? What was yesterday? (Mothers Day) How can we act like it is Mothers Day all year round?
Write/draw on a heart shape something child/husband will do for mother this coming week.
Closing Song: “The Dearest Names” (Children’s Song Book # 208)
Closing Prayer: Mommy
Heart shaped cookies
or MOM shaped cookies, roll dough into long thin rope and shape into letters.
This lesson would have been better in the lead up to Mothers day, but it can't hurt for a little reinforcement after Mothers Day.
