{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!

Crackers or Consequences..

Object Lesson

This is an attention getter that leads into a deeper discussion concerning 4 Nephi 1 Crackers: Before class take a box of Grahm Crackers or any type will work.
