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


Sharing Time Idea from the Primary Outline
IDENTIFY 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).


Sharing Time Idea from Little LDS Ideas

I thought it might be fun to play a matching game for this week’s Sharing Time. Keep on reading below for instructions & for free game printables!

{Sharing Time} Repentance is a Change of Mind & Heart
Sword Clipart bought from Clipartland on Etsy

Begin your Sharing Time using the ideas from the ‘Identify the Doctrine’ & the ‘Encourage Understanding sections of the Primary Outline.

After you have discussed the story of the Anti-Nephi-Lehies explain to the children that you will be playing ‘Will You Bury Your Sword’.

Download and print my ‘Will You Bury Your Sword’ matching cards (link below) and attach them to a poster-board, bulletin board, or chalkboard.
Show the children the cards and explain that on the back of the cards are different ‘wrong choice’ phrases. The children will take turns flipping over cards to reveal the wrong choices. Once a match is found invite the child to share ways they can choose the right (right the wrong) and then “bury” their swords by crumpling their papers, throwing them away, or have them place them in a box with a hole in the top.

 After all matches have been found, bear your testimony to the children. Invite them to remember the Anti-Nephi-Lehies and remind them that even though we make mistakes we can choose to ‘bury our swords’ and repent and promise to not do it again.

I am sharing my ‘Will You Bury Your Sword?’ cards with all of you.

{There are 5 pages + 1 page of blank cards.} 

I hope you enjoy my matching game this week.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day & a great Sharing Time!
