Book review and giveaway of "Family Home Evening Adventures" by Rebecca Irvine

You may have heard of Rebecca Irvine's first book, Adventures with the Word of God. She's recently followed it up her second book, Family Home Evening Adventures--a guide to help you plan your Family Home Evening activities. Each month you'll find a theme with song suggestions, suggested Friend articles, a game or activity, a thought-provoking quote and a fun treat idea that goes with the theme. The book also contains a sheet and ideas for planning for success for your Monday nights. I found the resources very easy to follow and adaptable to different family situations. You can win a copy of this book--read to the end to find out how.

This is what the publisher has to say about the book (aka the back-cover blurb):

Take the stress out of family home evening scripture study.
It s Monday night, and you re ready for another fun-filled, family activity. Family Home Evening Adventures is the perfect way to keep your children focused on the scriptures to build their testimonies. Filled with 12 fun seasonal activities, puzzles, questions, and lessons, this book lets you effectively plan for the entire year with a theme for each month.

Your children will learn gospel topics such as

Reverence
Love at Home
The Atonement
Feasting Upon the Word
Preparing for Baptism and others.

With this handy helper, parents can teach children to actively learn from the scriptures and increase their individual testimonies during family home evening.

Okay, so now for the giveaway--to win a copy of Family Home Evening Adventures, visit Rebecca's blog and tell me which Friend article she suggests for building your FHE activity. Then email me at Heather at HeatherJustesen dot com with the answer -and- leave a comment in the comment trail here. Don't leave the answer in your comment. She'll send out a copy of the book to the winner--which I'll announce here next week when I review GG Vandagriff's newest book. Enter before Midnight MST November 10.
