Service Family Home Evening

For Family Night we used the talk "Young Women in the Work" By Bonnie L. Oscarson from April General Conference (Find the talk here)  This talk focuses on ways the young women can serve in the church.  I have a 12 year old daughter and thought this would a great lesson for her but it can be applied to all of us.  For family night we focused on ways we can serve others. 

To start pass out one of these papers (full and half sheet option) and a pencil to everyone.  If you have younger kids it works well to do groups.  Give everyone 2 or 3 minutes to see how many ways they can come up with to serve others.  The person with the most wins.  When time is up go around the room and have them share their ideas.

Next I shared the following 2 quotes from Sister Oscarson's talk.  

 As a family think of someone you can serve together.  Brainstorm a few ideas and create a plan.  This talk really focuses on serving in our ward, you can go that route or maybe there is someone else you think could use a little extra help.

Pass out the paper below (2 color options) have each person think of 3 people they can serve this week.  Have them place it somewhere they will see it often.

I always like to create a printable that we leave up all week as a reminder of our lesson.
