Bringing our children unto Christ, week 2.

30 Weeks to bringing our children unto Christ using the nursery manual found on lds.org.
Each morning, we begin our day with breakfast at the dining room table. 
Before we start our hectic day, we take some time to be still...
We pray together and we learn of Him.
In just a few moments a day, we plan to complete one lesson each week. 

Lesson two is: 
Heavenly Father Has a Plan for Me

The introduction to this lesson reads, "We lived with Heavenly Father as spirits before we were born. Heavenly Father prepared a plan that allows us to come to earth and receive physical bodies in order to become like Him and return to His presence. This is made possible through the Atonement of Jesus Christ and our obedience. Jesus Christ was chosen to be our Savior."

How we learned this concept last week: 

1. Song. 
We learned the song, I Am a Child of God, last week and continued singing it this week. It's lyrics teach a beautiful truth about who we are, where we came from, and what our Heavenly Fathers plan for each of us is. To better realize what it is we have been singing, I printed out simple images that go along with the songs message. Each morning, my little girl colored a picture so that by the end of the week we had a musical story complete with visual aids.

2. Read the scriptures.
We opened up her illustrated bible and talked about the pictures. In the beginning God made the earth... And someday, when we're all done living on this earth, we'll go up to Heaven to live with Him again!

We absolutely love this cute book, available here on amazon, for the cute rhymes of the most well known biblical stories.

3. Talk about it!  
"Did you know that someday you get to live with Jesus again in heaven?" I asked my daughter one morning, and she replied, "Yes, please!"

She's just the sweetest little thing.

  1. Love these ideas. Love splashing my kids in God's Word. I haven't seen this Bible, but will check it out.

    Delighted to meet you. I hope you don't mind if I splash around to get to know you a bit more. This looks like a refreshing place to dip into some goodness.

    I'm also on the hunt for ideas to splatter some joy into our summer. I would love to hear your ideas. Come splash with us!
