Family Home Evening Lesson
Personal Scripture study and Prayers

Opening Prayer: Child

Opning Song:  A child's Prayer #12 Childrens Songbook


(For some reason my children prefer me to say their night prayers for them, and always tell me they dont know what to say and want me to do it! Even though I've taught them several times and they can all say food and family morning prayer with no problems! I felt it was time to give them a little push into saying their personal prayers)

I printed a copy of this chart for each child. We talked about the importance of reading our scriptures everyday even if its just a few verses and to say our morning and night prayers.

I chose a simple yet interesting scripture that we all read. I then said they could now colour in one of the scriptures on the chart under Monday. Later when you go to bed you can colour the girl when you say your night prayers. When they have a certain amount coloured I said they would get a small reward.


Draw, cut out pictures or write words  on a big piece of paper of the things we can pray for

Practice Kneeling, Folding arms and saying prayers

I just wanted to say that I am so happy I found your blog!!! I have an "almost" 3 year old and a 1 year old and it is so hard to find ideas for little ones. I'm too lazy to constantly think of fhe ideas on my own, so thank you for sharing your ideas with us! I will be following your blog from now on!

Very nice blog. Your blog title should not be written "idea's." It should be "ideas" (without the apostrophe). "Ideas" is plural, but "idea's" is singular in possessive form. Thanks for the great blog posts!

I love the chart. Thanks for sharing. In our primary they hang up a jewel with each child's name for each week they read from their scriptures, but I like being able to mark it for each day.
Your ideas are always so simple yet so effective! Thank you.
