Lehi's Vision/Iron Rod

Family Home Evening Lesson
Iron Rod/ Lehi's Vision

Opening Song:"Dare to do Right" Children's Song Book #158

Opening Prayer: Child

Scripture: This lesson based on 1 Nephi 8

Lesson: Mommy

Lehi gathered his family together and said "I have seen a vision" I was in darkness and prayed to God and then I beheld a tree whose fruit made people very happy. I went and had some of the fruit. I wanted my family to share the fruit so I called them over to have some. While looking for my family I saw a river, then a rod of iron on a straight path leading right to the tree. Some people were lost in the mist of darkness and other where in a large building laughing at those who were eating the fruit. The fruit is the love of God and we have to try hard in our life to walk along the path and hold on the the iron rod which is the gospel. Lehi had a vision of how we need to live and what can happen to us if we don't do the right thing.
