The Family Home Evening App is for Christian families looking for a tool to help guide them in family night together.
The apps purpose is to draw families closer to the Savior, Jesus Christ. The app is designed to be a mechanism to establish consistency and order in our homes by teaching healthy core beliefs and positive principles.
The Family Home Evening (FHE) app takes about five minutes to initially set up. From there, each weekly family night can be planned in one minute. It includes content (links and ideas for songs, lessons, activities and treats) for more than two years of Family Home Evenings without duplication. It’s clean, simple, customizable, and includes iMessage stickers. The content is from many Christian sources: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS), PragerU, FaithGrows, PrinceEa, etc.
Because of my own personal beliefs, this app was designed around Christian principles taught by the LDS faith. However, the app can be used by anyone of any faith to tailor to their own family values and core beliefs. My desire is that parents teach their children in their home, to learn and grow as a family in a safe and loving environment.
I am an independent iOS developer. I am a member of the LDS faith. I am not employed, paid, sponsored, directed, or endorsed by the church. I have built this app of my own will and design. The content, lessons, and topics created are of my own personal opinions.
I encourage users to search, ponder, pray for their own lessons and topics and add to the template that this Family Home Evening App provides.
Have fun using technology for a quick and easy tool to aid family night!

Ratings and Reviews
This app is amazing. It has so many features that are great ways to get your family involved. It takes so many different aspects of what your family home evening can be and it helps you incorporate what you feel is important for your family. A great way to stay organized and unified as a family. Very well thought out and innovative. Things that I hadn’t even thought of as a possibility for my family home evenings have come up and our family has definitely benefited from that enrichment. I love it! I think everyone should try it and see how it could help your family come closer together and closer to the Savior.
Developer Response ,
Best review ever! Thank you so much for your kind feedback. I made this app for families like yours. So happy you like it!
Great little FHE app
What a great app. It keeps our FHE organized and simple to do. I like that you can add your own lessons, etc., to it as well, and that you can let it auto select who does what to avoid children’s arguments over it. Ha. My only slight criticism, is that I wish it auto selected new lessons for you each week if you chose to let it do that, but it’s not a big deal to go in and select things yourself and that way I can try to line up things that go together. Thanks to the creator of this app, FHE is easy and fun.
When it works we love it
We used this app once and it was great for our family. I was really excited to use this weekly, but now I can’t get it to work at all. I uninstalled it once and downloaded it again then re-entered all of the family information (which with 8 of us takes a little time). It worked again for me until it was time for family night and then it just kept crashing when we tried using it. I don’t know if we just have too many people in our family or why it does this. If we could get it to work then it would be one we would definitely use each week.
