Lesson Based on President Monson's Message Canaries with Grey on their Wings from the June 2010 Ensign
The Prophet President Monson was given a canary from a lady in his ward. She had two perfect yellow canaries and one with grey specks on it's wings. The lady said "This canary isnt the prettiest but it has the best song"
Sometimes we might not feel as pretty, or as big, or as smart as others. But each of us is important to the Lord. We must be good and use our talents. There are many people like the canary with grey wings. We might not be perfect but we can be good at other things.
Ask Children "What are you good at?" "What are your talents?"
