I hope everybody watched General Conference! It was amazing. President Nelson once again proved to us all that he is God’s prophet for these times. He introduced a new 2-hour schedule (YAY!) for Sundays, and he asked us to stop using nicknames, and start using the correct name of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We can do that.
We were also asked to have a 10-day “fast” from social media, so I’m using Facebook for business only, as in: I’ll post this blog but not the stuff I usually do, like how I don’t like certain events and points of view. I thought I’d have withdrawal symptoms, but so far, none have appeared.
When you want to tell children about Jesus Christ and some of the miraculous things He did, what better way than to use some of the stories contained in these 3 kits? Kit #1 tells about His baptism by John, and the Temptation. Kit #2 contains the stories of Jesus calling His apostles. Kit #3 tells about the marriage at Cana and the woman at the well.
When I tell the stories, I prepare the figures by laminating them, cutting them out, and putting hook velcro on the backs, and after telling the stories, I let them play with the figures and tell the stories back to me using my Storyboard. They learn and remember best through play, and they enjoy retelling the stories.
Some of us have children or grandchildren getting ready to be baptized, or we may be preparing a baptism program for the children in Primary who are to be baptized in the next year. I have two FREE downloads for you!
To help you get a program ready, take a look at this kit. The kit includes a talk, posters, bookmark gifts, invitations, and programs for attendees. These are ideas you can print and use as you wish, including sharing the files with others.
