Family Home Evening Lesson
The Living Christ
Opening Song: "I'm trying to be like Jesus" Childrens SongBook #78
Opening Prayer: Child
I read to the children "The Living Christ" I picked out some of the phrases that I thought would interest them. They particulary like Joseph Smiths "His eyes were as a flame of fire; the hair of his head was white like the pure snow; his countenance shone above the brightness of the sun; and his voice was as the sound of the rushing of great waters, even the voice of Jehovah" They liked that he was shinier than the sun :)
After discussing the attributes and realities of Christ, I got the children to write their testimony, or a sentence about what they know about Jesus to be real. We wrote them on the back of "The Living Christ" that I printed out. Our 3 year old drew a picture of Daddy holding Jesus hand. It was very cute.
*I received February's Friend Magazine after this lesson. In the middle page is a poster of excerpts from The Living Christ. The pictures are good and would be suitable to use aswell.
Make a The Living Christ collage picture frame.
Here is an example of a very cute one at Crystals Craft Spot
