Have you watched this video yet?
We watched it as a family last night on Sunday, and it is powerful.
Today for Family Home Evening we will learn more about the eight Principles of Peace that are featured on Mormon.org. I love the videos that are posted for each principle (many of them brought tears to my eyes as I viewed them), but I think some of the content would be a little over the heads of my children. So tonight we will use a good old fashioned easter egg hunt to learn about the principles. On the mormon.org website you can find corresponding scriptures for each principle. I will put each scripture in an egg for the children to find. As we open them we read the scripture and discuss as a family. If you want to view the scriptures are all in one place, I have compiled them below.
Learn PRINCIPLES of PEACE from the PRINCE of PEACE
He offers peace to all who follow him. He lived, died, and lived again, so we may all live again. His resurrection brings us peace, now and forever.
He is Jesus Christ. King of Kings. Lord of Lords. Prince of Peace.
PEACE through FAITH
“As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.”
PEACE through GOD’S WORD
“But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”
PEACE through COMPASSION
“And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.”
PEACE through GRATITUDE
“And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.”
PEACE through PRAYER
“And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.”
PEACE through FORGIVENESS
“Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven.”
PEACE through REPENTANCE
“Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”
PEACE through HOPE
“If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. . . . For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.”
—1 Corinthians 15:19, 22
