On April 27, 1915, President Joseph F. Smith and the First Presidency urged members to create a “home evening,” where family members could gather together and learn gospel principles, read the scriptures, sing hymns, and learning about their duties to their families, the Church, society and the nation.
As time went on, the Church asked stakes and wards to set their own home evenings so that they wouldn’t schedule church meetings that took place on family night. In October of 1970, the Church designated Mondays as the official night for Family Home Evening.
As part of this centennial celebration, we’ve decide to share some of our favorite FHE lesson series as well as our most popular FHE lessons.

We have many responsiblities and obligations that take up our time. Sometimes, it feels like we can never accomplish all of them when we need to. This FHE lesson, however, will help you simplify your life and create peace and comfort.
How often do you pray, and what do you pray for? If you find yourself only praying to Heavenly Father when things get rough, you may want to remember the true purpose of prayer: to connect us with God and have a conversation with Him. Remember that He loves and wants to hear from you.
