"We cannot afford to neglect this heaven-inspired program. It can bring spiritual growth to each member of the family, helping him or her to withstand the temptations which are everywhere. The lessons learned in the home are those that last the longest.” -Thomas S. Monson

I love this quote from Thomas S. Monson. Our greatest happiness in this life comes from our families.
In order to achieve this happiness, we have to work to strengthen our marriage and  families each and ever day. One of the greatest works we can do is within the walls of our homes. Our homes should be a place of joy, happiness, peace, refuge, a safe haven from the world. We can create and make our homes feel just like heaven on earth. Each week I am going to be posting different Family Home Evening Ideas and other articles and materials to strengthen marriage and family. I would love for all of you to participate too if interested! If you have any family home evening ideas or other tips/advice to strengthening marriage and the family that you would like to share... please send them my way and I will feature them on my blog! Email:  
 Thank you so much and I look forward to your emails.!!

Today I am sharing this Family Home Evening Idea that I found HERE

What you will need:

Empty LIFE cereal box, bowl and spoon

Pictures of happy moments in life

Blue, Green, Orange and Red pom poms (3-4 of each color, 12-16 total)

Print out of John 17:3 & Questions

John 17:3
"And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the 
only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent."

Opening Prayer

Attention Activity:

Show pictures of your happy moments in life. 

Read 2nd Nephi 2:25

Why are we here in life according to that scripture?

1. Put the pom poms in the cereal box.

2. Have a family member draw out a pom pom and put it in the cereal bowl. Whatever color they drew out, they need to follow the question sheet and answer or do what it says.

3. Next person draws out a pom pom and does the same until there are no more!


Blue- What is the purpose/reasons of life?
Green- What are some good choices you can do with your life?
Orange- Read John 17:3 and see if you can do it by memory!
Red- Name something you like about the life of a person from the scriptures.


Final question:
What is life all about?

Closing Prayer

LIFE cereal?? Perhaps LIFE cereal bars??
