Family Home Evening: The Welfare Program

As we heard in General Conference, the Welfare Program is now 75 years old.  In it's honor, we had a lesson on Church Welfare.  We talked about how the official program started in 1936, welfare has always been a part of the church.  The official program led to Deseret Industries, church farms and canneries, and most recently Helping Hands.  One source was the talk "Principles and Programs" by Glenn L. Pace.  The adults shared their experiences with the various parts of the Welfare Program.

We played Apples to Apples Jr. for our activity again.  What can I say?  It's a family favorite.

Our treat was Oven Smores. They were super easy!  There are several versions on the internet, but we simplified them.  We lined a cookie sheet with foil, placed the appropriate number of graham cracker squares on top.  Then placed two Hershey squares of chocolate and a large marshmallow on top of the graham crackers.  Broil for few minutes until the marshmallow is golden.  Take out of the oven and place the graham cracker lid on top of your gooey goodness.

I love FHE! We hold it EVERY Monday, rain or shine. Sometimes some of my 12 kids are missing, but we still hold it every week. I love using their scout books, their Duty to God books, their Faith in God and their YW books to prepare lessons.

Oven smores are a great idea of a FHE treat. It sounds easy, and my son will think it's the best thing ever.

Sandy - We use those same resources for our lessons.

Kendal - I'm going to make Oven Smores for my Cub Scouts this month for that same reason.
