1. Ask you class what they know about Joseph Smith’s parents? Read Born of Goodly Parents to the class. Joseph Smith’s parents helped prepare him to be a prophet. Ask, "How are your parents helping prepare you to do what the Lord wants you to do?"

2. Give each child a piece of paper.  Trace their hand onto the paper and have them color and cut it out.  Then, tape down the middle and ring fingers to form the sign "I love you" in sign language.  Make in advance a small paper that can be glued/taped to the center of their hands that reads, "I will honor my parents because I love them."

3. Write a math problem on the chalkboard that is so difficult that none of the children can solve it.  Have them try to solve the problem.  Help them understand that they cannot solve the problem because no one has taught them how to do it.  Ask the class, "What do our parents help us learn?"  Write their answers on the board.  Help them understand that just like the math problem (point to the board), we cannot obey the gospel if we haven't learned it. 

4. Choose two children to pretend to be parents and another child to pretend to be their child.  Give the two parents a gospel subject and have them try to teach it to their "child". 

5. Review the song, "Teach me to walk in the light".  Read the lyrics to the class and discuss.  Sing it if time allows.

6. Handout from Emma's Place

7. Happy Clean Living

8. Latter-Day Chatter

9. I can be like the Stripling Warriors by..... by Patti Brown

10.  Our Parents help us Learn - by David Hill (Power Point Presentation)

    For this lesson, I showed the Book of Mormon Children Scriptures video of Helaman and the 2,000 warriors (abt 2 minutes). Afterwards pulled out a children's armor set (helmet, sword, breast plate & shield). I told them that they might not ever be in a military battle but will be in a different kind of battle and they will need to make choices in their lives to fortify themselves. On three of the armor pieces I put labels: Scriptures, Prayer and Safe Media. I told them if they choose to these things, they will become stronger. I then gave each of them a sticky note and they wrote anything else they can do to become spiritually stronger. (Some wrote: Go to Church, obey the Word of Wisdom, etc.) I think it went well!

    Sugardoodle rocks! I always find so many things that will help me teach the gospel. Thanks for the help with this lesson as I am subbing in the CTR 5's....not easy to do with little notice.

  • Staci Wray  - Great idea Chris!

    I love the idea of the armor. I am going to use a family home evening lesson from hatch patch creations to show the armor. Thanks!

    I made a card with a coloring photo of family home evening on the front for each child to write a thank you note to their parents. Inside they wrote "Thank you for teaching me the commandments" and added something they learned from their parents from the list on the board made during class.
