Family Home Evening Lesson
Following the Liahona
Opening Song: Nephi's Courage Children's Songbook #120
Opening Prayer: Child
Scripture: 1 Nephi 16:10,16, 26-29
Lehi woke one morning as it was time to depart into the wilderness. Outside his tent door was a Liahona. See images here.
It was a round ball of curious workmanship made of fine brass. Within the ball were two spindles and one pointed the way they should go like a compass (show compass if you have one) The ball worked according to their faith and diligence. So if Nephi and his family were GOOD the liahona worked.
The Holy Ghost is like our personal compass. We can pray and ask to know where we should go and what we should do.
Using Styrofoam balls and gold paint create your own liahona
