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 A Spirit Child Of Heavenly Father. January 2009 week 3

(Family Home Evening)
I AM CREATED IN THE IMAGE OF GOD. MY BODY IS A TEMPLE.
“All of you are children of the most High” (Psalm 82:6).

Show a picture of a temple. Discuss what a temple is.
A temple is literally a house of the Lord, a holy sanctuary in which sacred ceremonies and ordinances of the gospel are performed by and for the living and also in behalf of the dead. A place where the Lord may come, it is the most holy of any place of worship on the earth. Only the home can compare with the temple in sacredness.
“Temple” in the Bible Dictionary (pages 780–81)
Next hold up a mirror and let the children look into it. Discuss how your body is the same as the temple.
Both the temple and our bodies must be taken care of and clean in order for the Lord to dwell in them.
Make a list of ways the Temple is kept clean. (Same a keeping the Home clean) - sweep, mop, vacuum, make beds, pick up toys, do dishes, clean windows, clean clothes, etc.
Make list of ways to keep the Body clean. Good Hygiene, clean, modest clothes, eat good foods, avoid bad habits, keep away from: drugs, alcohol, poisons (anything that would hurt out bodies), Have clean thoughts, read/listen/watch good uplifting books, music, movies, exercise, etc.
Heavenly Father created your bodies for us and He wants us to take care of them, while we have them. In 1 Corinthians 3:16–17, we read:
“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
“If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.”
"Your body is not your own; it is on loan from God... The choices we make about the use of our personal temples will affect us throughout all eternity."
