Faith (This is more for primary aged children than youth.)

Object Lesson

But it is not so,…

Object Lesson

I take an old, well worn shoe and talk about how useful and comfortable the shoe is. It’s a good shoe. I have worked and walked and jogged many miles in this shoe. They protect my feet from thorns and rocks and glass. At first, they pinched when I wore them, but now I look forward to putting them on. The commandments are like this shoe. They may not always…
