Celebrating 100 Years of FHE: The Best of Family Home Evening

100 Years of FHE

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.
