Sharing Time Instruction:

Show the week's theme poster and invite the primary children to repeat, "After Jesus Christ and His Apostles died, gospel truths were lost."

Explain to the primary children that when Jesus was on the Earth he organized his church. After he died and was resurrected his apostles, continued teaching about the gospel.  But after the apostles died, there were truths about the gospel that were lost.

Explain that these gospel truths were lost until the fullness of the gospel was restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith.

Invite the children to help you find some of the gospel truths that had been lost after Jesus Christ and His Apostles Died, but have been restored today. Around the room, hide the follow pictures: (Baptism by immersion, The Sacrament, Living Prophets, The priesthood, Temples)

Invite a primary child to find one of the pictures bring it to the front of the room and discuss this gospel truth with the primary children.

Continue with each gospel truth.

Close by sharing your testimony on the topic.

The True to The Faith Book can help you discuss the topics.

  1. Thanks so much for linking the True to the Faith manual. I found the discussion of the topics so so so helpful and will be using in my lesson. Thank you!

  2. I don't know what I would do without your wonderful lessons. I can't thank you enough!

  3. The Lord Jesus Christ is the greatest gift that a person can ever receive in life. People have prosperity, position, power, popularity and prestige, but they are still miserable. They have what the world values, not realizing that there is someone more that they need, the only person that can fill the void in their lives. That person is Jesus Christ, the One who came into this world to save people from their sins. Satish Kartan
