FAMILY HOME EVENING LESSON
Say: “This is [child’s name].”
Say: “[Child’s name] is a child of God.”
Ask the children to repeat: “[Child’s name] is a child of God.”
Repeat the activity for each member of the family.
Show the picture of the children
Discuss the similarities and differences of the children. Do they look alike? Do you think they act the same? Discuss how each of us are different from others around us. We are not all the same, and that is OK, because we can help each other more through our differences.
Ask the family members Questions like: Is (Son 1) just like (Son 2)? What is (Son 1) good at? What is (Son 2) good at? Repeat for daughters, parents, and parent/children.
Chapter 1: Behold Your Little Ones: Nursery Manual, 8-11
God is our Heavenly Father. Every person who was ever born on earth was our spirit brother or sister in heaven. The first spirit born to our heavenly parents was Jesus Christ, so he is literally our elder brother (D&C 93:21). Because we are the spiritual children of our heavenly parents, we can become just like them. If we choose to do so, we can become perfect, just as they are.
In heaven we were not all alike. We were given different talents and abilities, and we were called to do different things on earth. We can learn more about our talents and callings when we receive our patriarchal blessings
Even though we have forgotten, Father in Heaven remembers who we were and what we did before we came here. We can learn the lessons we personally need and do the most good with our individual talents and personalities.
