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 of the most important events of the 19th century was Joseph Smith’s first vision. A young man read a passage of scripture and went to a grove of trees to pray out loud for the first time, and look what happened! He saw God the Father and our Savior Jesus Christ face to face and spoke to them. As a result, the ancient Gospel was restored.
Here’s a kit for you to tell the story to children, and for them to retell it to each other.
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.
