{Sharing Time} Repentance is a Change of Mind & Heart

By [email protected] (Sheena Perron)
Sharing Time Idea from the Primary OutlineIDENTIFY THE DOCTRINE(revealing a picture): Prepare word strips with words from the sentence “Repentance is a change of mind and heart” written on each one. Use the word strips to cover a picture of the Anti-Nephi-Lehies burying their weapons. Ask a few children to remove the word strips and place them in the correct order on the board. Ask the children to read the sentence together, using actions to emphasize the words mind and heart.

ENCOURAGE UNDERSTANDING(listening to a scripture story): Tell the children that there was a group of people in the Book of Mormon who had a change of heart. Tell the following story (see Alma 24): “Ammon taught a group of Lamanites about the gospel. They had been wicked people, but they believed what Ammon taught them and had a change of heart. They wanted to join the Church, so they repented of their sins, promised they would not fight, and buried their weapons of war. They changed their name to the Anti-Nephi-Lehies and became a hardworking, righteous people.”

ENCOURAGE APPLICATION (burying “swords” and singing): Give each child a piece of paper. Ask the children to draw a picture of a sword and then write a wrong choice on their swords (such as “fighting with my brother” or “telling a lie”). Ask the children to share ways they can choose the right and then “bury” their swords by crumpling their papers or throwing them away. Sing “Repentance” (CS, 98).
