- Watch “Christlike Attributes”
- What blessings did a remission of sins bring to King Benjamin’s people?

Love Is Spoken Here (Children’s #190)
- In Family Home Evening, we talked about always keeping remission of our sins. Today, we’ll talk about what happens when we do that. Our hearts are changed!
- What qualities do people have who retain a remission of their sins in these verses? How have you, or someone you love, experienced these changes?
- What does “quarrel” mean? (Argue, fight.) This verse says that parents should teach their children not to fight with each other. What can we do in our family to work on that?
Which of today’s qualities can I work on this week?
“Give,” Said the Little Stream (Children’s #236)
- Just like we rely on Heavenly Father and Jesus to give us forgiveness, sometimes other people rely on us to be kind.
- How can we serve others? How does sharing with the poor help us retain a remission of our sins?
- In what sense are we all beggars? According to these verses, how should we treat all of God’s children?
- What if we can’t give and we have to receive?
- Re-read verse 27. Should we give up our homes and all our clothes? No, because that would mean we couldn’t keep helping.
What can I do to help someone this week?
“Fixing a Bike” hidden items.
Hum Your Favorite Hymn (Children’s #152)
- The scripture tells us not to run faster than we have strength. Have you ever tried to run so fast that you run out of energy?
- This verse doesn’t mean only running – it means all of the things that you do. Service, activities, church callings, school, etc.
- Bring a family calendar and write down all of the different activities that you do during the week.
- God doesn’t give us a list of every possible sin. What does He do instead?
- How your thoughts, words, and deeds affect yourself and others?
- How do they affect your relationship with God? How do you “watch [yourself]”?
How can I better watch my thoughts, words, and deeds?
Run races as a family. Try doing silly races (running backwards, who can run slowest, etc.)
Thy Spirit, Lord, Has Stirred Our Souls (Hymns #157)
- It’s hard to change. A lot of people say they can’t because “it’s just how I am.” But these verses tell us having the Holy Ghost will help us change!
- Do we always have a big feeling of the Spirit with a big change? Not usually, the Spirit speaks quietly and will help us a little bit at a time.
- Think about the subtle, gradual changes as well as the “mighty” experiences. How do these experiences help you when you face temptation?
- We need to try to have the Spirit with us all the time. What things bring the Spirit? What things drive away the Spirit?
- Watch “The People of King Benjamin Make a Covenant”
What can I do to have the Holy Ghost more in my life this today?
“The Gifts and Fruits of the Spirit” word search.
Father in Heaven, We Do Believe (Hymns #180)
- The people of King Benjamin all came from different families (Nephites, Mulekites, etc.). When someone calls our name, we turn and listen.
- King Benjamin wanted the people to have a new and different name – the name of Christ.
- We take Christ’s name when we are baptized. We promise to follow Him, and He promises us forgiveness of our sins.
- What does it mean to take His name? When He calls for those who have His name, do we turn and listen?
What can I do to prepare to take Christ’s name when I’m baptized? (OR, How can I show I took Christ’s name on me when I was baptized?)
