2018 Sharing Time Outline Theme: I am a Child of God

October 2018 Sharing Time Topic: I Will Share the Gospel with All of God’s Children

October 2018 Song: Your Choice from Children's Songbook

October Week 3 Topic: I can share the gospel with my family and friends.


Prayerfully study and think about what the specific needs of your primary are and how you can teach them this doctrine. The most important thing is to love those you teach and to teach them by the Spirit!! Focus on building their testimonies and helping them come unto Christ!  (All printables for this sharing time can be found and printed by clicking the "Free Printable Download" button.

Sharing Time Instruction:

Discuss with they children what they learned last week and how they were able to be a missionary by living the gospel.

Show the primary children the week's theme poster and invite them to repeat, "I can share the gospel with my family and friends."

Show the primary children a picture of a cup of orange juice and tell them the following story, found in the October 2000 Ensign article, "Sharing the Gospel";

"Consider that you are invited to a friend’s house for breakfast. On the table you see a large pitcher of freshly squeezed orange juice from which your host fills his glass. But he offers you none. Finally, you ask, “Could I have a glass of orange juice?”

He replies, “Oh, I am sorry. I was afraid you might not like orange juice, and I didn’t want to offend you by offering you something you didn’t desire.”

Now, that sounds absurd, but it is not too different from the way we hesitate to offer up something far sweeter than orange juice. I have often worried how I would answer some friend about my hesitancy when I meet him beyond the veil."

Explain that we have the most precious gift that we can give to our family members and friends, that gift is knowledge of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Using the "Friend & Family Dice Printable" (see free download below). Invite a primary child to come up and toss it. Which ever picture lands up, invite them to share how they can share the gospel with that person. (see examples below) Continue inviting a primary child up to toss the dice and share how they can share the gospel with that person. (Point out that even if our family members and friends have the gospel in their lives we can still share the gospel with them and support and encourage them in living the gospel)

Close by sharing your testimony.
