Well, we’ve certainly had an eventful time recently. We’ve lost our beloved President Monson and now we have a new president, Russell M. Nelson, with his counselors. Because of that, and the many posts I’ve seen on Facebookabout Primary leaders wondering how to talk to children about this, I’ve undertaken some revisions.
Three of the FREE DOWNLOADS had pictures of President Monson on the front and content about him. Those books have been revised or added to, and are now available as FREE downloads for you to use in any way you wish. You can certainly use some of that content to tell the children about our new prophet, President Russell M. Nelson.
The 2018 Primary theme is “I Am a Child of God,” and I have two FREEdownloadsthat support that theme! The books can be printed, copied, and the files can be shared with others. They can be used for sharing time, your classroom, Family Home Evening, or for general use, such as keeping kids quiet and occupied in church or at home.
The first one is “I Am a Child of God Activity Book,” and the second one is “Gospel Games: I Am a Beloved Child of Heavenly Father.” Both of them have games and activities that can help teach kids that they are children of God.
2018is almost upon us! What will you be doing? Is your calling in Primary? Are you looking for activities and games for your class, sharing time, singing time, FHE, or for use at home for your children/grandchildren? Let us help you.
Here’s a chartto guide you in picking out which publications can assist you in whatever you are trying to accomplish. All are available as free downloads except for the 2018 Primary Theme Series books, and you can still get those to read for free if you subscribe to Kindle Unlimited.

Example: for sharing, have children write on feathersthings they are grateful for, and assemble to make the turkey. For singing time, write song names or numbers on the feathers and have kids “pluck” one to sing a song.
Every year for over 20 years, I’ve written books for the LDS Primary themes. There are a bunch of books every year, and I used to sell printed books to bookstores, but now I only sell them on Amazonin Kindleformat, with free pdfand Worddownloads for printing and/or editing, depending on the book. It’s almost the end of the year, so I’m putting the current 2017ones up as free downloads. You may still be able to use them, and they serve as samples so you can see what the books are like in case you’re thinking of purchasing the new ones for 2018. Anyway, here they are – just follow the links to get your FREEdownloads.
