Today my lesson was on the coming forth of the Book of Mormon. We talked about the angel Moroni, the hill Cumorah, and how Joseph Smith translated the golden plates. We also talked about how Heavenly Father helps guide those who are striving to serve Him. I told the story of Moroni, of when after all of his people had died and he was the only one left, that he still had Jesus Christ as his Savior and Friend. We colored pictures, and played “popcorn” as usual. I have a bean bag that they can throw, or “pop” to someone else once they say something they are grateful for. I am trying to make gratitude a fun activity for my class.
In regards to reverence, today was a bit of a hard day. Only one of the four children present received their reverent star. It was a little sad, as I wasn’t able to give the beanbag to one of the students that had earned it. But that said, some weeks are just better than others.
Next week is Stake Conference, so I won’t be teaching my Primary class this upcoming Sunday.
