"Prepare to Meet God" FHE

For Family Home Evening we used the General Conference talk "Prepare to Meet God" By Elder Quentin L. Cook.  I loved learning more about the 3 keys that were restored in the Kirtland Temple and really enjoyed this talk.  I was a little worried that it might go over my kids' heads but this lesson turned out to be one of their favorites.  Here's a quick over view of our lesson but what I love about using these talks is the conversation that develops during the lesson.  I don't plan word for word, a big part is asking and answering questions as they come.  

I started with a short clip from this movie.  It's about a minute long starting at minute 33.  
I then introduced the 3 keys 

and set up our game like this.  Printables are at the end and I included a set of black and white keys if you want to save some ink.  :)

All of the remaining pieces were divided up into 3 baskets. 
We took turns tossing a ball into a basket and picking a card (actually 2 or 3 to speed up the game).
Read the card and determine what key it goes with and if it answers the the question-Who, what or how.  (All of these come directly from his talk.)

I included an answer key because some are not real obvious.

I always like to create a printable that we leave up all week as a reminder of our lesson.   This one is included in the download.

If you just want the printable 
Click on the picture above.  Right click to save to your computer.
Print at home or send it to your favorite place to print pictures.
If printing at home I like to insert the picture in a word document.  Size and print on cardstock.
It's formatted as a 5x7 but can easily be resized to fit your needs.

You can find our other General Conference Family Home Evening here.

Or I guess I should say still living at home. Im teach our priesthood lesson this sunday and Im a big object lesson person and love some of your ideas even for my lesson. Im headed over to home depot to pick up "mistake" keys that they said for a lesson I could have for free and will hand them out as part of my lesson. Thanks! Keep up the good work.

    1. Thanks for stopping by Gary and I'm glad you could find something useful. I love the idea of using real keys. Thanks for the kind comments and hope your lesson went well.
