2017 LDS Sharing Time Ideas for March Week 4: I am blessed when I choose to follow the prophet.

Ideas for March Week 4 LDS Primary Sharing Time, I am blessed when I choose to follow the prophet.


2017 Sharing Time Outline Theme: Choose the Right

March 2017 Sharing Time Topic: Living Prophets Teach Me to Choose the Right

March 2017 Scripture: “O, remember, my son, and learn wisdom in thy youth; yea, learn in thy youth to keep the commandments of God” (Alma 37:35).

March 2017 Song:  “Stand for the Right” (CS, 159)

March Week 4 Topic: I am blessed when I choose to follow the prophet.

Preparation:

Prayerfully study and think about what the specific needs of your primary are and how you can teach them this doctrine. The most important this is to love those you teach and to teach them by the Spirit!! Focus on building their testimonies and helping them come unto Christ!


Sharing Time Instruction:


To begin sharing time, show the primary children the week's theme poster and invite them to repeat, "I am blessed when I choose to follow the prophet"

Explain to the primary children that throughout the sharing time they are going to be discussing and sharing ways that they can be blessed by following the teachings of the prophets.

Before sharing time, choose which prophets from the song, "Follow the Prophet" you would like to discuss. I have prepare printables for all of them, but time might not allow that all of them will be discuss.


On the board, place pictures of the prophets, see the links to the pictures below. Also, on the board, place the "Follow the Prophet cards" see printable below.

Invite a primary child to come up and choose one of the prophet pictures. As a primary sing that verse of "Follow the Prophet". Invite the primary children to listen to what it says that prophet did. As well, as think about how we can be blessed by following that prophet.

When you are done singing the verse. Invite a primary child to come up and pick the card that says what the prophet did.  Discuss as a primary how following that prophet can bless them.

Continue with inviting a child to pick another prophet picture, singing, picking card and discussing with each one you have chosen to put on the board.

Close by inviting the primary children to follow the prophets in the scriptures as well as the latter-day prophets and apostles. Invite them to listen to General Conference and find guidance from the prophets. Share your testimony on how we are blessed as we follow the prophets.

Pictures of the Prophets & the cards that go with them: (for the cards, see free download below)

Adam: Served the Lord by following his ways. (discuss... how when we follow our Heavenly Father we are blessed with peace and happiness and will have his spirit with us)

Enoch: He taught what was good. (discuss... That we can teach those around us that which is good, both in word and by our example. As we do we will have joy.)

Noah: Preached the word. (discuss... how we can share the gospel with those around us. Being a missionary brings us great blessings of happiness because we are bringing other to Christ.)

Abraham: Prayed to have a son. (discuss... how we can pray to our Heavenly Father. He blesses us by listening and answers our prayers.)

Moses: Sent to Israel. (discuss... how each of us will have things we will be asked to do, such as assignments and callings. We can be obedient and follow God's commandments. As we do so he will bless us to be able to do what he requires of us to do.)

Samuel: He was called by God and answered, "Here I am!" (discuss... how we are each chosen to do certain things in our lives too. We will be blessed as we say, "Here am I" and do all the Heavenly Father wants us to do)

 Jonah: Learned to listen and obey. (discuss... who we are constantly learning to listen and obey. As we obey our parents, church leaders and God. We will be blessed with safety and happiness)

Daniel: He refused to sin. (discuss... how we are kept safe as we refuse to sin. Sin carries with it sorrow and pain. Choosing the right bring with it freedom and happiness)

President Monson: Heed the prophets-follow what they say. (discuss... how we have latter-day prophets, who receive revelation for our day. We are blessed as we follow the guidance of our Latter-day prophets. They will help us stay safely on the path that leads to our Heavenly Father.)
