It’s chock full of games, stories, recipes, and lots more, but my version of word says the file is damaged. UPDATE: Melanie emailed me, and the original file is found at SugarDoodle.

Families are central to Heavenly Father’s plan.

Primary Talks

Mom, why do we have to pull these old weeds, anyway?” Vanessa whined, pushing back the hair from her sweaty forehead. “Weeds, weeds, weeds! It’s such a waste of time. They’ll just grow again next week, and I’ll have to pull them up all over again.” She stabbed the trowel into the dark brown soil for emphasis. Her mother smiled at eleven-year-old Vanessa’s impatience. “I wish that the garden plants…

The Family: A Proclamation to the World” is modern-day revelation

Primary Talks

He that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise (Prov. 12:15). Throughout my life, I have received “golden nuggets” of counsel and inspiration from the people around me. Some of those nuggets came from Primary teachers. I was a rambunctious (lively and somewhat mischievous) child who spent many hours sitting outside the classroom door in the time-out spot. More than a few times, my teachers went to my mother, the stake Primary…

Family history and temple work bless all the generations of my family

Primary Talks

Thunder clapped and lightning flashed almost constantly outside the cabin window as Louisa Bingham Lee stood kneading a large batch of bread dough on the kitchen table. Beside her was her mother, who was knitting a pair of stockings, and three of Louisa’s children were playing about the room. The Lee children were always fascinated when a powerful thunderstorm rolled through their peaceful valley in Clifton, Idaho, so Louisa propped…

I will prepare now to go to the temple

Primary Talks

Let every man esteem his brother as himself (D&C 38:24). Deanna’s CTR B teacher held up a picture. “Does anyone know what this is?” Deanna raised her hand. “The temple.” Sister Dench smiled. “That’s right. Do you know which temple it is, Deanna?” “The Denver Temple.” Deanna knew because her mother had hung a picture of it in their home. “Why do you think Heavenly Father wants us to have…

Family home evening strengthens my family

Primary Talks

Learning the gospel can be fun! … Together on fam’ly night! (Children’s Songbook, page 195). The door slammed behind Matthew as he ran in the house. He dropped his kindergarten papers on the kitchen table. “I’m home,” he said to his mother, who was spreading peanut butter on bread. “I’m ready to work on my family home evening lesson.” Mother laughed. “Just a minute, son,” she said. “You need to…

The family is ordained of God and is central to His plan

Primary Talks

Father plopped a stack of books on the table and announced, “Tonight for family home evening we are going to write our testimonies in a Book of Mormon. Practice first on a piece of paper. Then, using your best penmanship, write your testimony on the inside cover, and sign your name. We’ll glue one of your school pictures underneath it, and tomorrow I’ll give the books to the bishop to…

Marriage and Donuts

Object Lesson

I am comparing marriage to donuts and cinnamon rolls. A donut is like a temporal marriage, sweet and delicious but built around a big hole- till death do we part. The cinnamon roll is also sweet but has no hole. I also have a hand out of a donut for each girl with a note attached saying- “donut” settle- marry the right person in the right place at the right…
