How to Obtain Revelation and Inspiration for Your Personal Life – Elder Richard G. Scott
Let the Holy Spirit Guide – Hymn # 143

Prepare a “secret message” before family home evening using homemade invisible ink. Write the words, Heavenly Father will guide me when I follow the commandments. Tell the family that even though you can’t see it at first, there is a message written on your paper. Show them how using heat will reveal the message.
Just like we could read the message when we knew how, we can receive messages from Heavenly Father when we know how. Discuss as a family the different types of revelation as well as different ways to receive inspiration. Draw from what you learned reading Elder Scott’s talk as you direct discussion. Some things that stood out to me: getting enough sleep, eating healthy, and exercising all help us be more receptive to the Spirit. I didn’t think of that before :).
After you’ve had a short discussion, teach the family how to make invisible ink and have fun writing “secret” messages to each other.
