This next Sunday's topic is: I am thankful for Spiritual Blessings.
Begin the sharing time by having a gift. (Inside of the gift will be a picture of the Savior and the scripture reference strips and the phrase, "I am thankful for Spiritual Blessings" inside.)
Tell the children that they are going to sing the song, "The Seventh Article of Faith" found on page 126 in the Children's Song Book.
After the song have one of the children come up and unwrap the present. Have them pull out what is inside. Place the phrase on the board and have the children read it with you. Explain that there are a lot of spiritual blessings or gifts that the Lord gives us through the spirit. Give each class 1- 2 of the scripture reference strips. Give them a couple minutes to look up the scriptures and read them.
Ahead of time cut out and place the gifts around the room. Have a child come up and pick a gift. Have them read what it says on the back. Then ask the classes which one has the scripture reference that goes with that gift. Place them next to each other on the board with tape or magnets. Explain the blessing. Continue until you have discussed each.
Explain to the children that we should use the blessings given to us to help and bless other people's lives.
Bear your Testimony.
