How does family home evening strengthen family?

So I have to write a talk by this sunday about how family home evening strengthens family. My family doesn't have family home evening often so I don't know what to write. Please help. I know that Family home evening is a special time set aside each week that brings family members together and strengthens their love for each other, helps them draw closer to Heavenly Father, and encourages them to live righteously, but I can't turn that into a talk. Please help fast!

A great place to start then would be with the truth and not what helps for other people. If i were you, i'd write something like this…

I am supposed to talk about how famlily home evenings strengthen the family, but we don't do this in my family. I would imagine it could be about time to share or simply time to be together and bond, but in the end all i can do is talk about what others might say. As a child of a family that does not sit around together i can say i feel we lack ______ (you fill in the blanks).

Actually many families who do perform family evenings don't do so on just one night a week, nor do they often include religion into that time. How best to turn your child off from family night, make it a night of learning or religion. As a mother and a friend of other families, i've seen that facto happen over and over again.

Talk about what you truly know and don't just guess and don't just take other people's answers as your own. Write and talk about what happens in your home and what experiences come from it. Feeling distant with parents, not feeling open lines of communication, not feeling they even understand you. that's what happens in most homes that do not include family evenings and that's what you should truly talk about. maybe your family will hear it and start taking more time out for you as well and trust me… you'd enjoy it in the long run.
