Family Home Evening Lesson #26: YOUNG WOMEN VALUES--DIVINE NATURE

1. Opening Prayer

2. Sing "I Am a Child of God" Children's Songbook pg. 2

3. Read 2 Peter 1: 4-7 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.

4. Read and discuss the following from "Young Women Personal Progress"

I have inherited divine qualities, which I will strive to develop.

Then read and discuss the following from James E. Faust:

So who do you think you are? Who you think you are and who you really are can be two different versions of yourself. From an eternal perspective, these two versions need to come together. God knows you and what you can become because He has known you from the beginning when you were His spirit sons and daughters. What you become will depend in large measure upon how you follow righteous principles and do good works . . . The Prophet Joseph Smith said, “If men do not comprehend the character of God, they do not comprehend themselves.” Knowing who you are—who you really are—is closely tied to knowing God, for you are His children.

5. Closing Prayer
