alt Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ - Show the children the object covered by a piece of cloth.  Do you believe there is something under here? Why?  Let the children guess what they think the object might be. Then uncover the object. Point out that even though they could not see the object, they believed it was there.  Explain that even though we have not seen Jesus Christ, we believe he is there. We see evidence of his existence everywhere as we look at the world that he created, as we see the stars in the heavens, and especially as we read the scriptures. We also have prophets who have told us that they have seen him. Tell the children that today they will learn of someone from the Book of Mormon who had such great faith that he actually saw Jesus Christ.  (Idea taken from Primary 3 Manual, Lesson 29)

alt Blow on a feather or a pinwheel. Ask the children if they can see the wind that is moving the feather. Ask them if they know that the wind is really moving the feather. Explain that we do not have to see something to have faith. (January 2007 Friend / Sharing Time Suggestion)

alt I had a bag of Hershey Kisses on the table. I asked one student to come up and look in the bag. He did. I told him he could smell it as well. He did. Then I told him to go back and sit down and tell everyone else what was in the bag. He said, "Kisses!" excitedly. I asked the rest of the class if they believed that there were kisses in the bag. They said they did. I asked them why they believed it? They didn't see it for themselves. They didn't smell it. All they had to go on, was the boys' word. How did they know that there were really kisses in the bag? One boy raised his hand and said, "Because we have faith that he's telling the truth." Then I had them turn to the verse in Alma 32 where it says "faith is not a perfect knowledge of things." (Idea by Charlene in New Mexico)
