FHE Lesson {Love}

Family Home Evening Lesson
Love/Valentines

Opening Song: Love One Another

Opening Prayer:

Lesson:

As Valentines Day is coming up perfect time for a lesson on love.

Perhaps firstly you could discuss expectations, what individuals would like to have happen on the day. (my girls like lindt chocolate, flowers and balloons - I usually only do ONE of those per year. It could be a nice family dinner and dessert, a special heart shaped pancake breakfast or I'm doing heart pretzels this year}

Set and discuss goals to do a secret kindness for someone else this week
{help siblings, bake something for a neighbour/friend, do something special for mum and dad}

Discuss how and why we should love others {John 13:34}

Activity:



Make Heart Maps {idea found here at Chocolate on my Cranium }

Basically draw a heart with several small compartments.
Inside each space draw a thing YOU LOVE.

Ideas to prompt young children:

Family
Pets
Drawing
Holidays
Animals
Nature
Flowers
Dancing
Reading

Leave Heart Maps up for the week to remind us of the real things we LOVE.

Hopefully by focusing on real love we can avoid commercialization of Valentines Day.

Have a LOVE-Y week!

Closing Song: Jesus Said Love Everyone
