“Every member a missionary,” remember that saying? President David O. McKay said it, and we need to teach our children about being missionaries. Here are two downloads to help you.
This week I have a special kit for you to share with the children in your life. Every child should know that the most important thing that ever happened on earth was the atonement which took place in the Garden of Gethsemane, because Jesus made it possible for us to repent of our sins and be forgiven. Next, He was crucified, buried, and then resurrected after three days in the tomb. He thus made it possible for us to be resurrected.
One thing we surely want our children to know is that our Church is led by a prophet of God. We want them to know who he is, learn about him, and listen to him. We know from scripture that our Heavenly Father will never let our prophet lead us astray.
These books teach children about our prophets and teach them to listen to him.
Last week I showed you some downloads of books for teaching younger children; this week I’m featuring teaching aids for older children. These are based on the outdated lesson books that have been replaced by the new “Come, Follow Me” curriculum. Make no mistake, these books are stuffed with great ideas that can help your children or students learn and be entertained. There’s a set for each of the four standard works. There are Classroom Activity Books and Activity Books for the Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants/Church History, Old Testament, and New Testament.
