Pass around a copy of the scriptures. As each child holds the scriptures, let that child share one thing he or she remembers from last week’s lesson or from reading the scriptures at home this week.
The Lord wanted the Saints to gather together in Ohio and to love each other as equals. How can you help the children feel unity with and love for others?
One way that Heavenly Father helps us not be afraid is by teaching us to be prepared.
Let’s plan a day hike! What do we need to bring? What do we need to do to get ready? How are we going to get there?
Write a list of how to prepare for the hike on the chalkboard.
Instead of going on a hike, let’s go to Disneyland! What do we need to bring? What do we need to do to get ready? How are we going to get there?
Write a list of how to prepare for Disneyland on the chalkboard.
The preparation to Disneyland is very different from the preparation for the day hike.
If you follow the path you described for the day hike, will it bring you to Disneyland?
How does the destination you choose influence the path you must take to get there?
What do the children in your class need to understand about receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost? The Lord’s instructions to James Covel about this ordinance might help.
Read together Doctrine and Covenants 39:6. Bear testimony about how the Holy Ghost has blessed you in these ways. Help the children recognize times when they might feel the Spirit’s influence.
What are the colors of a traffic sign?
The Holy Ghost gives us signs just like a traffic sign. When you are driving down the road and see a red light what are you supposed to do? Stop. You can also get a “stop” message from the Holy Ghost. What are somethings that you might get a “stop” message for? Watching a bad movie, swearing, music etc.
What does a yellow light mean when you are driving? It means slow down, be careful or caution. Sometimes the Holy Ghost will flash yellow lights at you, warning you of danger.
What does the green light mean? It means go. Some of the jobs of the Holy Ghost are to guide us, testify of Jesus Christ and to bear witness of heavenly Father. Somethings the Holy Ghost will give us the green light to do something. What are somethings that the Holy Ghost would give us the green light to do? Bear our testimony, missionary work, etc.
Listening very closely to the Holy Ghost is what will guide us back to our Heavenly Father.
Put the phrases in a small container. Choice a child to come up and pick out a word strip. Have him or her read it to the primary, and then place the correct color on the traffic light. Red is stop, yellow is caution and green is go. I.e. If they choose television shows it is yellow, proceed with caution.
Invite the children to discuss with their parents or other family members how they can be more united as a family.
There are 3 options with the lessons. The first one is a color PDF of the full lesson, all the pictures, scriptures and art projects with the watermark removed.
The next option is all the pictures in Black and White
The 3rd option is a PowerPoint with all the pictures and scriptures that you can pull up on your device. It is like having a digital copy. It eliminates the printing and the cutting out. This makes the lesson easier come Sunday morning.
All three options are now included in a zip drive that will immediately be emailed to you for $2.75. You can pick and choose from all three options to make your lesson just right for you!
