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.

I Am Thankful To Know That We Are Children of God. November 2008, week 1

I AM THANKFUL TO BE A BELOVED CHILD OF GOD
FAMILY HOME EVENING LESSON

Start with this activity:
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.
Chapter 2: Our Heavenly Family,” Gospel Principles, 11

Have Family color puppet to look like them. Then list or draw things they are good at and things they like.


Bear your testimony of being a Child of God and how you feel about that.
