Hi sweet friends! I got some amazing feedback from last week so I figured I’d keep going with these little Family Home Evenings. Thank you all so much for sending me your messages and pictures of your activity last week! I loved seeing it! Here is this week’s lesson: (As usual, always very simple!)
Lesson #2: My Heavenly Father Loves Me
Opening Song: My Heavenly Father Loves Me (music: HERE)
Scripture: 3 Nephi 17:11-12, 21-24 (scripture: HERE)
Lesson: Show a picture of Christ holding children (HERE) and talk about when Jesus taught the people he asked to bring their little ones to Him. (Point to little ones.) They sat on the ground around Him and Jesus knelt and prayed. (Show how we pray – kneel and bow heads) Then he blessed each child, one by one. Jesus did this because he loves his children. (hug themselves). Talk about the things we just sang about (birds, sky, lilac tree, etc.) and explain that Heavenly Father sends us those things to enjoy on the earth because He loves us. Explain to your child/children how much you love them and how much Heavenly Father loves them too.
Activity: Have them draw a picture of themselves inside a heart OR frost heart-shaped cookies.
Treat: Heart-shaped sugar cookies (click HERE for my swig recipe that you can use)
Let me know how this week goes!
