The Old Testament Bookshelf

This graphic can be used in a few ways.  It can be used for helping your class learn the Old Testament books in order. Try using the song on page 114 of the Children’s Songbook to help with that.           It also can be used to show the class how the Old Testament books are grouped and how they are not in chronological order.  Have your students group the books in their own scriptures on the page just before Genesis 1. The Hebrew words are what Jew […]

{Sharing Time} Marriage between a man and a woman is essential to God’s plan.

By [email protected] (Sheena Perron) Encourage understanding(hearing and telling a story): Tell the story of Adam being the first man on the earth. Have a child read Genesis 2:18 as the children listen for what Heavenly Father said (“It is not good that the man should be alone”). Explain that He created Eve, who would marry Adam. Have a child read Genesis 3:20 as the children listen for what Adam called…

{Sharing Time} Marriage between a man and a woman is essential to God’s plan.


Encourage understanding(hearing and telling a story): Tell the story of Adam being the first man on the earth. Have a child read Genesis 2:18 as the children listen for what Heavenly Father said (“It is not good that the man should be alone”). Explain that He created Eve, who would marry Adam. Have a child read Genesis 3:20 as the children listen for what Adam called his wife (Eve). Next have a child read Genesis 1:28 as they listen for what Heavenly Father commanded Adam and Eve to do (“multiply,” or have a family). Explain that without Adam and Eve’s marriage, God’s plan for His children to come to earth would not have happened. Invite a few children to retell the story.

Retelling stories: When children retell a story they have just heard, they will remember it better.

Encourage application (seeing pictures): Explain that Heavenly Father’s commandment for a man and a woman to be married and have a family is just as important today as it was when Adam and Eve were on the earth. Show pictures of families and let the children point out the man, the woman, and the children.

Sharing Time Ideas from Little LDS Ideas

At first I was having a hard time thinking of something for this week. But then I had an idea that I thought might be fun. I am excited to share my idea for this week, and think it will be alot of fun for the children. 

For this week’s Sharing Time I thought it would be fun to invite a few of the children’s parents to come in and share about how they met and their wedding day…but I’ve added a fun twist! Read below for 2 great ideas!

{Sharing Time} Marriage between a man and a woman is essential to God’s plan.


To Tell the Truth

Is the Wedding Story True?

Begin your Sharing Time telling the children about Adam & Eve and explain to them that marriage between a man & a woman is essential to God’s plan. Once you have discussed that explain to the children that today you have invited several couples to come in and share their very own story of their wedding day BUT some of the stories that they will hear might be FALSE! They are going to have to decide which couples are ‘Telling the Truth’.
First, you will need a table for a panel of ‘judges’ on one side of the Primary room. On the opposite side of the room have 2 chairs (for the lovely couple). Have 3-4 or as many couples as you would like.
If you really want to get into the whole game show theme you could make a ‘To Tell The Truth’ sign, a microphone, etc.

Begin by picking 4-5 judges (children) to come up and sit at the judge’s table. Explain that they are about to meet a wonderful couple that are going to come in and share their story of how they met and their wedding. Tell them they will need to listen carefully to their story because at the end you will be asking them whether the story was True or False.
Hand each ‘judge’ a True or False paddle (I have included a printable for this, below).

Invite the first couple in and have them share their story. Be sure to tell each couple to only share a 2-3 minute (or less) story.

After they are done and the children have guessed if it is true or false have the children sit down and invite some new judges up to the table and then invite the new couple in.

Once the judges have guessed you could have the couples share their testimony or why they feel that marriage between a man and woman is important to them.


Continue until all the couples have shared their stories or until time runs out.

Try to mix it up a little. Younger children might be surprised to hear that an older couple has only been married a few years or invite a family that wasn’t sealed in the temple until later or find someone with a very funny story of how they met.



Another Way to Play!

Here’s another idea that you could use also.


Begin your Sharing Time telling the children about Adam & Eve and explain to them that marriage between a man & a woman is essential to God’s plan. Once you have discussed that explain to the children that today you have invited several couples to come in and share their very own story of their wedding day BUT they will not be able to see them. Show the pictures to the children and explain that they are going to have to guess who is who.

Before Primary invite 4-5 couples to come in and share about their wedding day with the Primary. Have the adults bring a large picture of them on their wedding day.

Set-Up:
You will need a table for a panel of ‘judges’ on one side of the Primary room. You will also need one of those large rolling chalkboards or create a large divider that the adults can stand behind.
On the front of the chalkboard or on a bulletin board attach each of the pictures and label each one with a number (1-4 or depending on how many couples help). 

To Begin!

Invite 4 children up to the front to be your ‘judges’.

Explain that they are about to meet a wonderful couple that are going to come in and share their story of how they met and their wedding. Tell them they will need to listen carefully to their story because at the end you will be asking them who they think they are.
Hand each ‘judge’ a Number Paddle (I have included a printable for this, below).

 Invite the first couple to come in and share their story.  After they have finished ask the judges who they think the lovely couple is. Have the ‘judges’ look at the pictures and then pick the coordinating number on their paddle to guess.
Once all the judges have guess a number and have their paddles raised, have the couple ‘reveal’ themselves.
Have them share their testimony or why they feel that marriage between a man and woman is important to them.

To Create Your Paddles

To create your very own ‘True or False’ OR number paddles click on the link and download the file.
Then…print them out and cut each circle out. 
You can have a paddle for each circle (One True & One False) or create a front and back by gluing the backs of each circle together.

I added a popsicle stick to the bottom of my paddles so that they children could hold up their paddle. 
Grab your ‘True’ circle and glue or tape a popsicle stick to the bottom. Then on the back, using glue, glue around the edge. Grab your ‘False’ circle and place the back of the ‘False’ circle on top of the ‘True’ circle.
Let it dry and there you go…your very own True or False paddle!

I hope you enjoy my Sharing Time ideas for this week as well as the children in your Primary. I always love to hear how your Sharing Time goes, so be sure to stop by and leave me a comment.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day and a great Sharing time!

Starting to Plan …. Seminary

Well, now I finally have my materials to begin Seminary. In this area, the S&I rep has created a method whereby he hopes that the callings are issued, which was unfortunately ignored by our stake, and many of us are just now receiving our materials. It must really suck to be an S&I person. You’re in charge and accountable for overseeing Seminary in a given area, but you have no…
