Changes Are Constent

Changing interests and focuses in our lives make life more interesting and FUN. With that in mind I have added a couple more blogs: Preschool Learning Adventure and Mama's Reading Nook both are linked to Primarily A Mama blog. This will stay as my main page, but the others you can access through the tabs above. I will make excerpt posts here for each post written on the other blogs and link them so you can just click and go. I hope this will help keep things better organized and clean looking for myself and all of you.

The temple is a blessing to me and my family. June 2008 week 1

* I added the Temple Music Video I made and showed at the end of Sharing Time*
This is my Sharing Time that I will do in primary, just put into a Family Home Evening Lesson


Scripture: "And very I say unto you, let this house be built unto my name, that I may reveal mine ordinances therein unto my people" (Doctrine and Covenant 124:40)

Song: I Love to See the Temple, (CS, 95)

Lesson: Find pictures of as many temples as you can and show the family the different types.

Temples are a blessing to you and to your family. There are more than 120 temples all over the world. Do you know the name of the temple closest to you? Is there a picture of a temple in your home? Has someone in your family been to the temple to make sacred covenants?
The Primary song "I Love to See the Temple" (Children's Songbook, 95) teaches that a temple is "a house of God, a place of love and beauty." It also teaches that a temple is "a holy place where we are sealed together." The next time you sing this song, listen for the words "I'm going there someday." This is a promise you are making to yourself and to Heavenly Father that you will be worthy to enter His holy house.

(I took a picture of the Mesa, Arizona Temple, and cut it up into "building blocks" and put the scripture/prepreations on the back)

Discuss things we must do to prepare to enter the temple. Most are things we do every day, but we must work hard to not slip into bad habits. Read the scriptures to find the things we must do. The italic sentences come from My Gospel Standards, found in the Faith in God pamphlet for primary.
