{Sharing Time} By giving service to others, I give service to God

Reactions: 
I love these quotes about service!

“Often small acts of service are all that is required to lift and bless another. ... The desire to lift, the 
willingness to help, and the graciousness to give come from a heart filled with love.” 
President Monson

“The needs of others are ever present, and each of 
us can do something to help someone.” President Monson

“I believe that love is shown by how you live, how you serve, and how you 
bless others. When we serve others, we are showing them that we love them, and we 
are also showing Jesus Christ that we love Him” President Monson

This game is from last year but the theme is the same and I spent the last few days thinking of something new and nothing was coming so.. next week's Sharing Time will have a brand new game!!

Play a matching game, draw ideas yourself or let the kids. So many possibilities with this set because it includes so much to help the kids figure out what service is all about.

{Sharing Time} I show my gratitude by offering thanks for all my blessings

Reactions: 
Materials Needed:
Ace Bandages or white material cut into strips
Sticker dots
Picture of the Ten Lepers









Begin by sharing the story of the ten lepers in Luke or use this video about Ten Lepers (Go download it here).


After the video/story, ask the kids what lesson did the Savior want us to learn from this parable. Gratitude...

Lepers would cover their sores with bandages and a lot of the time their bandages would cover their whole bodies.  Today we are going to think of ways that we can be grateful for the blessings that we have and we have a visitor to help us. (invite a bishopric member, member from the Elders' or Relief Society)
Begin with no bandages, and start saying things that kids can say negative. And for each, put a sticker dot (for easy reference number the stickers so you know what is what) onto your volunteer
" I hate my homework"
"Why can't I have a phone"
"I hate my sister"

Now we have all these negative sayings, how can we turn them around and make them positive? (cover each sticker dot as the kids say something that we are blessed with for each negative thing with the bandages.

We are learning from our homework.
You can play more with friends instead of on a phone.
I have a family who loves me even though we may not agree.

Etc.....


Explain that when we show our gratitude we are showing to Heavenly Father that we are grateful for even the smallest things that we are given. At the end of the story of the lepers, only the one that went back to say thank you was healed from leprosy. The other 9 became lepers again. Why do you think that is?

Another idea:

An idea from last year's Sharing Time is this game, is 12 things that we have to be grateful for. You can put a few into bags and separate the Primary and have each group write how we can show our gratitude for each.

August Sharing Time WK 1

Reactions: 
This week came a little harder for me to put together, how to explain the reason/blessings of praying in our families can be a difficult feat to small kids but after reading some talks and coming across this quote from President Kimball. It came into line. For this lesson, I will only be giving helpful hints and a coloring page, as I was praying about this lesson, I felt like this was the best course of action for a special topic. I wish you ladies the best of luck! (Coloring page download at the bottom)

“No mother would carelessly send her little children forth to school on a wintry morning without warm clothes to protect against the snow and rain and cold. But there are numerous fathers and mothers who send their children to school without the protective covering available to them through prayer—a protection against exposure to unknown hazards, evil people, and base temptations.” 

I love this analogy because it's so true! We wouldn't go outside in the cold winter without our winter gear. Just the same we shouldn't leave our homes without praying in our families!

Bring in some winter clothes and dress up a child (if the a/c is on!!) and talk about each piece and what it helps protect in the cold weather. Ask some questions about prayer for each piece and let the kids share what they would like.
Questions:
1) Why should we each participate in family prayer?
2) Show this bridge and ask what would if we took out the middle of this bridge? Would the bridge stay together? No, if we take the piece in the middle (the keystone) the bridge can't hold together. In our families, family prayer can also be just like the middle of the bridge. Each piece of the bridge (family member) may be strong by themselves but with the middle of the bridge (family prayer) the entire bridge is strong.

3) How can family prayer help us and make us stronger as a family?
4) Why can we get help by praying together that we can't get any other way?
(As we pray in our families about specific problems we can help each other with our individual problems)
5) Read 3 Nephi 18: 21  How are we blessed (how have you been blessed) by praying with your family?
6) Share this story- An Answered Prayer  How was this family blessed that day?


Here's some talks to help:
