Family Home Evening: Dwelt in a Tent


On Monday nights we have what we call “Family Home Evening”. We gather together as a family to study the gospel together and to do other activities that strengthen the family spiritually, create family memories, and increase unity and love.

Keeping our boys’ attention is challenging, so fun ways to teach the message is imperative.

Tonight we built a “tent” out of blankets and kitchen stools, anchored by Charles Dickens' novels.


Then we all gathered inside to hear Daddy tell the story of Lehi and his family’s journey to the promised land. (read about it here)


The boys LOVED IT!

Then we made Chunky Peanut Butter Cookies. Because all good things end with cookies, or at least this fun family Monday night did.

Pin It!

Thanks for sharing. I love when I hear families spending great quality time together, especially in the spirit of God! This needs to happen more! I feel like sometimes we are all so busy that we are never together as a family. Maybe we will try the tent one night this week. Big enought this time for all of us! Thanks for sharing!!

"Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity. "
