I can learn about righteous families by reading the scriptures
Friend July 2007, suggestion #  1
 

Play a game of “Who Are We?”
Show children the name of a family from the scriptures such as the family of Adam and Eve, Abraham and Sarah, Lehi and Sariah, or Joseph and Mary.
Help them answer yes-or-no questions about the family they belong to.
Have the other Primary children ask questions to find out about the family.

A child might ask,

  • “Do we learn about your family from the Book of Mormon?”

Be prepared with some hints and picture clues. When each family is identified, tell about the family, and show where this family is found in the scriptures.
Ask the children to think of one good quality of the family that they would like to have in their own family.
For example,

  • “I would like my family to be patient like Abraham and Sarah’s family.”

Show the children a copy of “The Family: A Proclamation to the World.” From paragraph 7 read, “Happiness in family life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ.”

Bear your testimony about the truth of this statement and about the importance of righteous families.
