I’m just going to get straight to the point. FHEasy: A Year of Weekly Teachings and Daily Devotionals is hands down the best FHE activity book we have ever reviewed? Why? Because of the doctrinal depth that it covers in such a way that needs to be taught to our children and frankly, more members.

I’ve included a section of the book below on the Godhead and you’ll notice that it doesn’t squirm away from the fact that there are multiple versions of the First Vision and puts that fact, into context. Yes, it has everything else you will need for FHE such as planned out lessons, activities etc etc.

What makes this book so different from every other FHE activity book we have reviewed is simply the fact that it will fortify not only your children, but adults a like in their testimonies because of the depth of the history and doctrines it tackles in it.

It has 21, 5-star reviews on Amazon because it’s just that good. If you want to purchase it as a gift, you can purchase it on Amazon right now. Or you can click the image below 🙂

FHEasy
Below is an excerpt on the topic of the Godhead…take a look.

One of the examples from the book is on Article of Faith #1 – The Godhead

Scripture

“We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in his Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.”
(Articles of Faith 1:1)
Music from Children’s Songbook and Hymns
Joseph Smith’s First Prayer (Hymns, 26)
Our Savior’s Love (Hymns, 113)
The First Article of Faith (CS, 122)
This Is My Beloved Son (CS, 76)

Quote

“We declare it is self-evident from the scriptures that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost are
separate persons, three divine beings, noting such unequivocal illustrations as the Savior’s great
Intercessory Prayer …, His baptism at the hands of John, the experience on the Mount of
Transfiguration, and the martyrdom of Stephen.” (Jeffrey R. Holland, “The Only True God and
Jesus Christ Whom He Hath Sent,” Ensign, Nov. 2007)

Scripture Stories

Jesus is baptized by John the Baptist. All three members of the Godhead are present and
obviously distinct. (See Matthew 3:13–17, note Joseph Smith Translation, Matthew 3:43–46)
When Stephen was being martyred, he was full of the Holy Ghost and saw the Father and Jesus
Christ together as separate Beings. (See Acts 7:55)
Joseph Smith thinks, reads, prays and receives the First Vision, a visitation from Heavenly Father
and Jesus Christ. (See Joseph Smith—History 1:14–20)

Church History

Joseph Smith received what he called “the first visitation of angels” in the
Spring of 1820 when he was fourteen years old. There are several
accounts of what we now call “the First Vision” that share different
details than the official account published in the Pearl of Great Price? To

Adaptations for Younger Children

Quotes
“I am a child of God. I know Heavenly Father loves me, and I love Him. I can pray to Heavenly

Lessons from Behold Your Little Ones
“The Holy Ghost Helps Me” (Lesson 6, pages 28–31) and “Joseph Smith Saw Heavenly Father
and Jesus Christ” (Lesson 21, pages 88–91)

Faith in God

Help your children memorize and pass off the Article of Faith this week. Recite this Article of
Faith or sing the primary song daily as part of your family scripture study (Children’s Songbook,
122). For Article of Faith 1, the memory trick is the rhyme “Son,” We believe in the Father, the
SON, and the Holy Ghost. See the appendix for the full list of memory helps. Have your children
write the Article of Faith, draw a picture that represents it, and tape it in a prominent place. (Faith
in God, p. 16, p. 20)

Activity

Get a pen, pencil, crayon, and rubber band. Put the rubber band around the pen, pencil, and
crayon to tie them together. Explain that they represent the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.
They have similarities, but They are different. They are distinct, yet unified. After the lesson, draw
or color.

Adaptations for Older Children and Teens Quote

“I am not worried that the Prophet Joseph Smith gave a number of versions of the first vision
anymore than I am worried that there are four different writers of the gospels in the New
Testament, each with his own perceptions, each telling the events to meet his own purpose for
writing at the time.

I am more concerned with the fact that God has revealed in this dispensation a great and
marvelous and beautiful plan that motivates men and women to love their Creator and their
Redeemer, to appreciate and serve one another, to walk in faith on the road that leads to
immortality and eternal life.” (Gordon B. Hinckley, “God Hath Not Given Us the Spirit of Fear,”
Ensign, Oct. 1984)

Preach My Gospel

“God Is Our Loving Heavenly Father” 31–32; “Through Christ We Can Be Cleansed From Sin” 60–61; “Faith in Jesus Christ” 61-62; “The Holy Ghost” 90–92

Personal Progress

Individual Worth #1: Read the listed scriptures and write about what you learn about Heavenly
Father in your journal (30). As a daughter of God, you have great individual worth. Review the
section on Individual Worth. See what you’ve done and what you haven’t done. Review value
project ideas. (29–36)

Integrity #3 – Learn about the Savior and His integrity. Write about examples of people showing
integrity and think of times when you have acted with integrity. (63)
Choice and Accountability #5 – Learn about the Holy Ghost by reading the suggested scriptures,
discussing them with another person, and writing about them in your journal. (47)

Duty to God

Study the doctrinal topic of the Godhead. Record what you learn and share what you learned with
your parents or a priesthood leader. (See pages 18–21, 42–45, 66–69)

Activity
Look over the page “A Comparison of the First Vision Accounts” in the appendix. Discuss the
various things mentioned in different accounts of the First Vision. For members of the church,
the details are not the most important thing. The most important thing is to discover for
ourselves through prayer and personal revelation if Heavenly Father and Jesus appeared to
Joseph Smith and began the events that led to the restoration of Christ’s church. Share your
thoughts and testimonies about the First Vision.

Daily Scriptures

Sunday
“We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in his Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.”
(Articles of Faith 1:1)

Monday
“The Father has a body of flesh and bones as tangible as man’s; the Son also; but the Holy Ghost
has not a body of flesh and bones, but is a personage of Spirit. Were it not so, the Holy Ghost
could not dwell in us. A man may receive the Holy Ghost, and it may descend upon him and not
tarry with him.” (D&C 130:22–23)

Tuesday
“I saw a pillar of light exactly over my head, above the brightness of the sun, which descended
gradually until it fell upon me. . . . When the light rested upon me I saw two Personages, whose
brightness and glory defy all description, standing above me in the air. One of them spake unto
me, calling me by name and said, pointing to the other—This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him!”
(Joseph Smith—History 1:16–17)

Wednesday
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but
by me. … The Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things,
and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” (John 14:6, 26)

Thursday
“For behold, this is my work and my glory—to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of
man.” (Moses 1:39)

Friday
“Hearken unto the Spirit which teacheth a man to pray, ye would know that ye must pray; for the
evil spirit teacheth not a man to pray, but teacheth him that he must not pray. But behold, I say
unto you that ye must pray always, and not faint; that ye must not perform any thing unto the
Lord save in the first place ye shall pray unto the Father in the name of Christ, that he will
consecrate thy performance unto thee, that thy performance may be for the welfare of thy soul.”
(2 Nephi 32:8–9)

Saturday
“Put your trust in that Spirit which leadeth to do good—yea, to do justly, to walk humbly, to
judge righteously; and this is my Spirit. … Verily, verily, I say unto you, I will impart unto you of
my Spirit, which shall enlighten your mind, which shall fill your soul with joy.” (D&C 11:12–13)
