FHE: Agency

This Family Evening Lesson comes from the Faith in God booklet, the Learning and Living the Gospel page.  We sang "Choose the Right" as an opening song, then discussed times we've made good and bad choices and the consequences of our choices.  It is always exciting to see when my kiddos "get" a concept.  One of them brought up that we are free to choose our actions, but we don't get to choose the consequences of those actions.  This is such an important and basic principle of the gospel that some people really have a hard time grasping.  I spent last week at Girls Camp and our theme was Deeply Rooted.  One statement that I heard several times is you can't plant flowers and expect to get vegetables.  What you plant is what you grow. 

We played a silly game called Would You Rather for our activity.  It's a card game with questions like would you rather walk across glass or nails.  The person who's turn it was held up one or two fingers behind their back depending on their answer, if the majority of the other players came up with the same answer - they stayed in the game.  It went along great with our agency lesson!

We finished up our Family Home Evening with Carmel Rice Crispies from It's a Daisy Day. One of my kiddos decided they need to be called Carmel Crispy Treats. No matter what they are called they were a big hit!  I even took a couple to Girls Camp and was giving out samples.  I wasn't surprised they were a popular there too.
