Pioneer FHE Lesson
 
by Lara Goold
 
Materials needed:
Scriptures,
Purpose:
To teach family members about the pioneers that crossed the plains, and most importantly to show thatwe can each be pioneers now by living righteously, following the prophet, and exercising faith in JesusChrist.
Scripture:
 
“Yea, and how is it that ye have forgotten that the Lord is able to do all things according to his will, for the children of men, if it so be that they exercise faith
 
in him? Wherefore, let us be faithful to him.”
 1 Nephi 7:12Opening song(s) and prayer:
“To Be a Pioneer,
Children’s Songbook, page 218-219
Come, Come, Ye Saints
,” Hymns, page 30
 
Lesson:
  Lay down a quilt, turn off the lights (or most of them), unplug your phone and tell your familythat you are going to have Family Home Evening like the pioneers might have had (without any modern conveniences). Show the picture of the covered wagon from the flannel board story.Tell them that today you are going to learn about the pioneers of old and later on we will learnhow we can be pioneers today…no covered wagon needed. Define
: A pioneer is a person who opens a way or prepares others to follow.
 Briefly share the story of the pioneers (using summary and flannel board figures)
:
A longtime ago there were people who were living in many different lands who all had recently joined anew church (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints). Because they lived in places andtimes where their new beliefs were not accepted, Heavenly Father gave them instructions togather together in one place where they could be near the prophet and give support to each other.It was a hard thing to leave behind their nice belongings and comfortable homes, but theysacrificed so that they could follow what the Lord wanted them to do.Because it was such a long time ago, there were no cars, or buses, or airplanes for the pioneers toride to Utah. Many of them had come in boats across the ocean and then walked or rode inwagons pulled by oxen the rest of the way. It took a very long time to get to their new homesand they faced many trials along the way, but the Lord blessed them and eventually they found apeaceful haven where they could flourish and grow together.
Ask
:
Think back to the definition we talked about at the beginning, how did the pioneers open away or prepare others to follow? Talk about how by gathering in one place (eventually Utah)they helped the church to become more firmly established and accepted, thereby preparing a lessarduous path for those who would follow (us).

Ask:
Does the Lord ask us to leave our homes now to live in one place? No. Now Saints liveall over the world and establish themselves in their communities wherever they are. By livingthe gospel, we are leaders and examples in our schools, communities, and workplaces, therebymaking us pioneers as well.
 Pioneers of a Different Kind (with picture):
Read this poem while showing the picture and useit to facilitate a discussion about we can be pioneers today.
 Modern Day Pioneers:
Use these “case studies” to talk about the many different ways that wecan be pioneers now and how there are pioneers all around us. Emphasize that it is throughrighteous choices, following the prophet, and having faith in Jesus Christ that we can be pioneers.
To Be a Pioneer:
Sing or read the words to, “To Be a Pioneer” (page 218 in Children’sSongbook) while holding up a picture of the modern and traditional pioneer together (same picture as from the
 Pioneers of a Different Kind 
poem). You may want to discuss some of thesimilarities and differences in the picture.
 Bear your testimony
about the faithfulness of the pioneers and of your prayer that they can be pioneers today in their every day life.
Closing song:
“Little Pioneer Children,
Children’s Songbook, page 216
 Pioneer Children Sang as They Walked 
,” Children’s Songbook, page 214
 Closing Prayer
