Christmas Service Countdown Service

“Christmas Service Countdown Family Home Evening
Purpose: To reflect on serving one another in our families during the Christmas season. Often times we can focus on selfish thoughts during this gift-giving season. It’s important that we strive to keep the focus on being selfless as our Savior was as we celebrate His birth.

     “Over the years, many people, especially youth, have asked me, “Elder Cuthbert, how can I become more spiritual?” My reply has always been the same: “You need to give more service.
       Service changes people. It refines, purifies, gives a finer perspective, and brings out the best in each one of us. It gets us looking outward instead of inward. It prompts us to consider others’ needs ahead of our own. Righteous service is the expression of true charity, such as the Savior showed.” – Elder Derek A. Cuthbert, Ensign May 1990

Here are a list of ways service helps us become more spiritual:

1.      Helps us see true value in material things vs. things of the eternal value
2.      Service establishes a righteous tradition. Start serving when you’re young and that will lead to more willingness to serve throughout your life in the community and church.
3.      Service helps us overcome selfishness and sin.
4.      Service helps us generate love and appreciation.
5.      Service is the principle in which we show gratitude to our Savior.
~ What ways have you been served? How did it make you feel?
~ What are some ways that you’ve served others?
~ How did it make you feel when you’ve served someone else?
~ Why should we focus on service during the Christmas season?

Come Unto Christ

Purpose: This lesson is focused on reviewing a General Conference talk from the October 2014 conference.

General Conference Talk: “Yes, Lord, I Will Follow Thee”

Song: “Lord I Would Follow Thee” – Hymn #220

Lesson: During this General Conference talk, Elder Eduardo Gavarret shares distinct invitations from Christ and what they mean for us:

“The Lord invites us using various verbs: “Come unto me,” “Follow me,” “Walk with me.” In each case it is not a passive invitation; it is an invitation to act.”

1. “Come Unto Me”

“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matt. 11:28) There are many ways in which we can come unto Jesus Christ. There may be times where we need to make hard changes in our lives – for example, obeying the Word of Wisdom completely, keeping the Sabbath Day holy, paying an honest tithes and offerings, attending all church meetings and so on. What we can learn from Elder Gavarrett is to go to our Savior, be obedient to the covenants we make and He will help us – we just need to come unto Him.

2. “Follow Me”

“Follow me” was the Lord’s invitation to the rich young ruler. The rich man had kept the commandments throughout his life. When he asked what more he could do, he received an answer with a clear invitation: “Come, … follow me.” However, even though the invitation was simple, it was not without sacrifice. It required effort—coupled with decision and action.” – Elder Gavarret

After we come unto Christ and learn of the blessings that await us from living the gospel, we are invited by the Savior to “follow Him.” This is one of the actions that Elder Gavarret shares with us. When we are baptized and each week when we partake of the sacrament and renew those baptismal covenants, we say to our Savior, “Lord, I will follow Thee.” It is more than just at our baptism and on Sunday that we follow the Savior. It’s a constant open invitation for us to follow Him each day and in each decision or kind act we make or do for others.

“As you strive to come to Him, you will gain the power to relieve life’s burdens, whether physical or spiritual, and experience a positive inner change that will help you be happier.” – Elder Gavarret

3. “Walk With Me”

“The decision to “come unto me” and “follow me” is personal. When we accept this invitation, our level of commitment is raised, and it is then that we can “walk with Him.” This level establishes a closer relationship with the Savior—the fruit of our accepting the first invitation.” – Elder Gavarret

What steps can we take today to “walk with Him”? (from Elder Gavarret)

  1. Feed the desire to be a better follower of Christ.
  2. Pray for this desire that your faith in Him may grow.
  3. Obtain knowledge from the scriptures, lighting the way and strengthening your desire to change.
  4. Make the decision today to act and say, “Yes, Lord, I will follow Thee!” Simply knowing the truth will not change your world unless you turn knowledge into action.
  5. Persevere in the decision you have made by exercising these principles daily.




1. What does it mean to “Come Unto Christ,” “Follow Christ,” and “Walk with Christ?”

2. What are 2 (two) areas in your life that you can improve to be a better follower of Christ? *Write these 2+ areas you want to change down on a piece of paper to be used in the activity.


“Come Unto Christ” —> this will take some pre-setting up and preparing to accomplish.

1. Get a photo of the temple nearest your or a favorite temple of your family.

2. Place the temple in an area where you can create a walking path for your family.

3. Cut out footprints and stagger them from where you will hold FHE all the way to the temple photo. (Footprint printable)

Follow Christ Footsteps











4. You can walk to the temple photo as you have the lesson and make 3 stopping points to discuss the three individual topics. Once you’re at the temple, you can do the discussion part and leave your answers to Discussion #2 at the base of the temple photo.

Family Halloween Activities

Halloween is my absolute favorite time of the year! It’s the perfect mix of the crisp Fall air, the trees showing their intensely-colored leaves and the start of the three month holiday marathon- not to mention getting free candy, dressing up looking ridiculous (like having an excuse to stay in your PJ’s all day and calling yourself “just woke up” as your costume theme) and all the fun that comes with spooking people.

What’s not to love about this month?! One of my family’s highlights is sipping hot chocolate (with LOTS of marshmallows, of course) while watching the holiday classics such as the special, “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.”

There are also some fantastically fun–I mean– ghoulish books that are fun to read with children, such as “Shake dem Halloween Bones” by W. Nikola-Lisa. While the customs and events surrounding this event can vary from one culture to the next– there are a number of favorite old and new traditions that your family can do this month.

Fun Family Movies:

1. “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.”

2.  “Casper”

3. “Monster House”

4. “Hocus Pocus”

5. “The Nightmare Before Christmas”

Fun Family Pranks:

1: BOO! Your Neighbor- Bake some delicious Halloween treats, have the children decorate a Halloween bag and include a tag that reads:

You’ve Been BOOed! (download the free printable tag on our Facebook page)


The air is cool, the season fall,

Soon Halloween will come to all.

With ghosts and goblins, spooks galore,

Trick-or-treaters at the door.

The spooks are after things to do.

In fact, a spook brought this to you!

The treats that come with this short note

Are yours to keep. Enjoy them both!

Excitement grows when friends like you

Will copy it, and make it two.

Neighbors will have smiling faces;

None can guess who “BOOed” which places.

A day or two to work your spell,

But keep it hidden! Hide it well!

Join the fun; the season’s here.

So spread these “BOOs”–and share the cheer!

2. Hide in a pile of leaves from unsuspecting neighbors

3. Creepy Guessing Game: Blindfold individuals and have them guess what body parts they’re touching!

       Brains=Spaghetti noodles

       Eyeballs= Grapes

       Heart= Bags of Pudding

       Fingernails= Slivered Almonds

Create a neighborhood spook ally and throw a block Halloween party. Involving your neighborhood will be fun and also give children a safe place to be on Halloween night (or another night, if you choose).

Make your plans, get creative and start a new Halloween tradition. Whatever your family’s customs are for October- make it a point to spend more time together. Happy Haunting!
