Simple FHE Ideas: Gratitude

FHE Gratitude

One of the great keys to happiness is to learn to have an “attitude of gratitude” and a thankful heart, recognizing all God has blessed us with. With Thanksgiving just a few weeks away, here is an easy family night lesson on gratitude  to get you on your way.



Primary Songs


Luke 17:11–19


Watch this video together.


Have everyone brainstorm the “major” blessings we tend to think of readily. This may include:

  • Gospel
  • Family
  • Home
  • Health
  • Job
  • Freedom
  • Education

After the “easy” answers are discussed briefly, have each person take a turn naming something else they are grateful for and why.

In our house we always have to check off things like video games, parties, etc., in order to get some children to search for less obvious blessings.

    Thank you, sisters! Nice to get some feedback.

    I intend to include more of these in the future. Any other authors or reader are welcome to contribute FHE idea for publication. It would be fun to have a nice repository of simple FHE lessons with current resources.

    So simple. Thanks! (Yeah, we sometimes have trouble naming the more obscure things as well.)

    Kitty litter. I am thankful for kitty litter today. (How’s that?)

    Thanks again. And happy Thanksgiving!
