The Nature of God - FHE Lesson

This family home evening lesson was part 2 of Chapter 1 in the Gospel Principles Manual.  We talked first about the nature of God.  

I put up the sign that said, "Words that describe Heavenly Father."  The girls picked a picture to put on the magnet board (a.k.a. cookie sheet) and we discussed each picture.  The words we used to describe Heavenly Father were: love, charity, judge, body and spirit, perfect, all knowing, all powerful, and merciful.

We re-emphasized that He loves us and shows us His love by everything He has given us.  We explained He knows everything and can do anything.  We also explained that we were made in His image and that He has a body and spirit just like we do.  Finally, we talked about how He showed His mercy by sending the Savior to atone for our sins.

We then talked about how Heavenly Father wants us to come back to Him.  We read Moses 1: 39 together and discussed it.

We concluded by talking about things we can do to come to know God.  We listed 4 things:
1. Believe He exists and loves us
2. Study the scriptures
3. Pray to Him
4. Obey all His commandments

Because it's Valentine's Day this week we emphasized that one of His commandments is to love one another.  I challenged the family to show extra love to each other this week.

All of my pictures were free clip art online.  I just stuck the words to describe Heavenly Father underneath the picture, laminated them, and put magnets on the back.  Super easy!
