Star Wars Family Night

Every Monday night we hold a family night where we can gather as a family. We sing, pray, have a short lesson, and eat a treat. Tonight we thought we would teach some Gospel Principals and include some Star Wars because it's "May the 4th..". My hubby and I were discussing it yesterday after church and he shared this with me. How awesome is that? I think that might be our opening activity.

Opening Song: Choose The Right Way 

Opening Prayer: by invitation

  • Why are Jedi so amazing?
Let's look up some scriptures and see if we can find some character traits that describe Jedi Knights. Character is a moral quality that describes someone.

( I have given you the answers for each scripture. These are all traits that Jedi have. Take as much time as you need to discuss what it means to have these traits. Encourage children to ask questions as needed to help them be involved in the lesson.)

Psalms 119:15  Respect 
Provberbs 18:12 Humility 
Mosiah 2:17 Service
Luke 10:33 Compassion 
Alma 38:12 Self-Discipline
2 Peter 1:6 Patience
Alma 7:20 Morality 
Luke 8:15 Honesty
Acts 13:38 Forgiveness 
Proverbs 15:1 Diplomacy
Isaiah 55:4 Leadership 

2 Nephi 1:30 Loyalty

“Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.” George Lucus.

We know that fear and anger lead to the dark side. Just as Anakin fell and became very evil we too can fall spiritually. 

  • What can we do to keep off this path?
End with your testimony that developing the traits of a Jedi can help us become for selfless and kind. These are also traits that our Savior Jesus Christ has. As we strive to become more like Him we will be blessed with happiness. The path is hard sometimes. But we can strive each day to become more like him. 

Closing Prayer: by invitation 

Games: Star Wars Trivial Pursuit. (We have yet to have a guest who could beat my husband at this game.)

Thankful for the THIS cool blog where I found the list of Jedi qualities. Feel free to check their blog out. Some of these links are affilate links where I get a commission at no extra charge to to you. Feel free to buy them from here or where ever you would like. I only share things that I really love.
