    Steve’s testimony began as an intellectual one but gradually changed to one solidly grounded as he was converted by the Spirit. Beautiful essay!

    I love Mark’s story of the blessings of repentance. I love his testimony of the truths of temple ordinances, priesthood blessings, and his knowledge that Christ lives. I hope his story touches you as well.

    I just love Stephanie’s story of how Christ’s Atonement has changed and sustained her throughout her life, even amidst her grief over her young daughter’s death. She says, “I dare not take my eye off of Him and be distracted by the storm around me. I survive and thrive only by keeping my eye on the Savior.”

    “I admit that I am completely dependent on the Atonement.” Check out Michaelanne’s testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. You’ll be glad you did!

Hi! I'm Laura. I started this blog to continue to teach FHE lessons to my children who are grown and living away from home. I also hope to serve my six sisters by preparing FHE lessons that they can use with their younger children, and I hope the lessons will be helpful to you as well!

What is FHE?

FHE stands for Family Home Evening and is a night set aside each week (usually Monday) by families who belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. FHE is a chance for parents to teach lessons to their children about the gospel of Jesus Christ as well as other important topics. The lesson is frequently accompanied by a fun activity together as a family and a yummy treat.
