{Sharing Time} Remembering Jesus Christ Helps Me Choose the Right

Sharing Time Idea from the 2014 Outline

IDENTIFY THE DOCTRINE(listening to scriptures): Invite the children to close their eyes and imagine what life would be like if everyone made right choices. Ask a few of them to share what they imagined. Tell them that there was a time in the Book of Mormon when this happened, and ask them to listen for how this time is described as a child reads 4 Nephi 1:15, 17. Explain that the people were able to choose the right because they remembered something very special. Retell the events from 3 Nephi 17:20–25. Invite the children to say together, “Remembering Jesus Christ helps me choose the right.”

ENCOURAGE UNDERSTANDING AND APPLICATION (singing songs): Cover a picture of Christ blessing the Nephite children with some blank pieces of paper. Invite the children to think of songs that help them remember Jesus Christ. Sing a few of these songs together. Following each song, have a child remove a piece of paper from the picture. Repeat until all the pieces are removed. Discuss how the children in the picture may have made right choices following their experience with Jesus. Remind the children that when they remember Jesus they will want to choose the right. Ask them to name some things they can do to remember Jesus in their daily activities.




Sharing Time Idea from Little LDS Ideas

To begin use the Identify the Doctrine idea from the outline.

Have the children close their eyes and imagine what life would be like if everyone made right choices. Ask a few of them to share what they imagined. Tell them that there was a time in the Book of Mormon when this happened, and ask them to listen for how this time is described as a child reads 4 Nephi 1:15, 17. Explain that the people were able to choose the right because they remembered something very special.

Have a small box wrapped like a gift. Explain to the children that the people in the scriptures remembered something very special. That very special something isn’t something that you can buy at a store. The special something is a gift from our Heavenly Father and He gave this special gift to the whole world. The gift was His own Son, Jesus Christ, who came to the earth to be our Savior.

Jesus showed us the way to live so that we can return to our Heavenly Father.

Invite the children to say together, 
“Remembering Jesus Christ helps me choose the right.

Before Primary get some other small boxes that you can use as gifts.

You will also need to make a copy or print out a picture of Christ blessing the Nephite children. Cut the picture into several puzzle pieces.

 In each of the small gifts place a puzzle piece. You could also include a piece of paper with a question. Some of the pieces of paper could say:

“Pick a song that reminds you of Jesus Christ.”

or

“What can you do to remember Jesus Christ daily?”

or

Come up with some scenarios

Place the items in each of the boxes and wrap them like a gift.

For your Sharing Time, place each of the gifts on a table at the front of the room. Invite a child up to the front and have them pick a gift. Have the child unwrap the gift to reveal the puzzle piece. Have them place the puzzle piece where they think it goes (you could have them do this on a chalkboard or bulletin board). Then ask them the question that is in the box. If it’s a song have the children sing the song, if it’s a question have them answer the question. Then continue with the next gift.

After all the gifts have been opened and the puzzle is all put together discuss how the children in the picture may have made right choices following their experience with Jesus.

Remind the children that when they remember Jesus they will want to choose the right. Ask a few children to name some things they can do to remember Jesus in their daily activities.

Encourage the children to think of Jesus often throughout their daily activities. You could even ask them to think of something that they will do. Have them write it down and tell them that that can be their gift to Jesus Christ.


This month’s Friend has a great little ‘gift’ picture that you could use for the children to write what they will do. Just click HERE to view the printable.

 I hope you enjoy this week’s Sharing Time. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day and a great Sharing Time!

Group wall post by Jenny Smith

By Jenny Smith Jenny Smith : Someone asked for ways to save money on the #seminarybudget. I’m not teaching teenagers — my class is offered through the RS — so I have no budget, and my class meets in the theater of a local senior citizens center, so there’s no teaching equipment available to me. I need a chalk or dry erase board sometimes, so I’ve been using this substitute….

Action Words

Sometimes the way the Lord uses verbs, or action words, is very specific and powerful. Look for words that describe actions, what people are doing or to do, etc. Ponder why the Lord chose such language and not another similar but different word. Look For: Look for the words that are action words–that describes what someone or something is doing, etc. Example: John 14:15 “If you love me, keep the…

I wonder what I’ll be good at?

Luke 15 While we were watching this fantastic movie this morning: all of the students were commenting on how talented this sand story artist, Joe Castillo is. Then, one of my least introspective students asked himself aloud: “I wonder what I’ll be good at?” Another Freshman turned to him and said, “I know man! Me, too!” I didn’t know what to say to him that wouldn’t sound like a platitude,…

I show love for Jesus Christ when I keep the commandments

Primary Talks

Spencer W. Kimball was a prophet. He wrote a special letter to children in 1979 about how we can show we love Jesus Christ by keeping the commandments. This is what he wrote: Dear Boys and Girls, Each one of you is special in our sight, and we know you are precious to our Heavenly Father and to His Beloved Son, Jesus Christ. How fortunate you are to belong to…

Reverence

Prophets Testify of Jesus Christ

Primary Talks

Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets (Amos 3:7). If God himself told His prophet something that the whole world needed to hear, but that prophet lived long ago or far away, how could we get the message? Answer: The prophets carefully wrote it down for us; we can find it in books and other writings called scriptures. The scriptures…
