For the last two years, I have posted small Primary talks for each week that correspond to the weekly Primary theme.  I originally created this file JUST in case the person assigned to give the talk in Primary forgets (or doesn't show up).  

Just print this file, staple it all together and tuck it away.  With luck, you won't need it. 

* All of these talks were put together using various Friend Magazines and scriptures.  For a couple of them I used some of the Primary Manuals, General Conference Talks and The Family: A Proclamation to the World.

  • A.Jones  - THANK YOU!!!

    :) Thank you so very much for taking the time and effort to do this. These talks have definitely come in handy many Sunday mornings when our talk hasn't shown up and/or forgot. All our presidency and secretary have copies in our binders for emergencies and are so grateful for you doing this. Thanks again!!!

  • Jenn L  - Thank you!!

    These really saved me on several occasions last year when parents forgot to tell me that they were going out of town. I appreciate all the hard work!! :woohoo:

  • Just another primary president

    MANY thanks for your service and love to the primary. We have used these on many occasions and I'm very grateful for all your time and willingness to share.

    You are an occasionally life-saver. Thanks!

  • Theresa westbrook  - Theresa

    These talks came in handy several times this year!!!! I so appreciate you taking, I'm sure, a lot of time to put this together again!!!! Thank you!!!!

  • LaBronnasmom  - Thanks!

    I used these in 2012 and they were a lifesaver. I was hoping I'd find it again for 2013. We have so many that will come one week and not the other. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Hi Melanie:

    I loved the Valiant Newsletter every week. I used them for the back of the church programs for my Kidz Korner to help the children review the lessons they have studied. It is no longer on the website. Do you know if it will contiinue in the future?

    I really appreciate the website and all the hard work that all of you do. It really helps me out each week with studying my lesson as well as doing the kidz corner



  • Sheila  - A huge blessing

    Thank you so much for your efforts in doing this. I really appreciate it.

  • Micki


    I printed last year's and ended up using them several times. I'm so grateful you did it again, this saves me so much stress!

    Thank you SO much!

  • heidi  - YES!

    Thank you for taking the time to put these together. They have saved us more than once in the past.

  • Penney's Worth  - Thanks!

    I used last years several times when the person that was assigned for the talk did not show up. Every Primary Secretary should have this printed and ready for a volunteer to do a talk.

  • Cindy  - Thank you

    I printed the talks last year. Stapled together and kept in our closet. It came in very handy when someone assigned to give a talk was absent. Our primary appreciates your efforts and willingness to share. Thank you for the wonderful packet.

  • Liz  - Thank you!

    :woohoo: Thank you so much! I appreciate the work you have done and the help you so freely give to all!

  • Taylor  - The best!

    I can't imagine how much work this is but I was so grateful to have it last year and I know it's going to be so helpful this year!

    I used it so much last year when kids got sick or didn't show up! It's truly so helpful! Thank you for your time and talent!

  • Stephanie Thomas

    Dear Mel,

    I LOVE YOU! Thank you for saving me today in Primary.

    I do believe that you are the GREATEST!

    Steph :woohoo:

  • Pat  - THANK YOU!

    Thank you so much for your sharing. What a big help to us leaders :)

  • M.S.Knight

    This work is greatly appreciated. We used the 2012 talks on several occasions last year when a child wasn't in Primary or forgot a talk. So nice to print and have a booklet handy. Thanks again for your hard work that is a blessing.

  • Mylene D.  - You are the best!

    I have been in primary for 2 and a half years now (started as the secretary and am now the president) and you have no idea how handy these talks have come. They are an absolute life saver. We have been printing and using them since you started doing this. I appreciate anything that can make my calling easier and this is definately one of them. Thank you!!!

  • Kate  - This is Amazing!

    You are amazing! Thank you so much! This will help so much in helping me to not worry if a child doesn't show up for a talk I will be assigning! Thank you, thank you, thank you! May you be blessed for your hard work and talents! I am our ward's primary secretary and want to do it differently this year. This will be perfect!

  • Anonymous  - THANKS

    thanks for these we love it, great backup if someone doesn't show up

  • Shanae  - Thank You

    Thank You so much for your time and effort! I have been able to go to these talks to get ideas of how to write talks for my own children when they have to give talks. I am clueless when it comes to this and they give me a place to start without being overwhelmed with all the information. I can't even begin to express my appreciation to the time you have taken out of your own life to do this for all the primary children out there!

  • Avril Ferguson  - Avril

    I second everything that has been said. I don't know how you do it, but I'm really grateful that you do! Many thanks.

  • Diana

    This is absolutely amazing! Thank you so much!!

  • Tennille  - Thankyou for sharing your lovely work

    Wow, what a wonderful resource. I have just started as Primary Secretary and even though I thought I had checked that the weekly assignments were all ok I have already had to find a couple of talks on the spot - eek. I'm so grateful for your compilation of talks, I will be less panicked for the next time. :)

  • Jessica

    Thank you so much for putting in such effort and time into doing this for everyone. I am a primary teacher and a mother. Some of my kids are not able to go to church every week so they feel like they don't know where to start. This is a great tool for them! Thanks again from a greatful mother!

  • Valerie Tang Wai Chan

    Thank you so much, you are really a life saver.

  • Brittany  - Primary Talks

    This is amazing! Thank you so much for putting this all together and putting it on here so that others can be helped out by your hard work. This is such a life saver for us in primary. You did an amazing job! Thank you so MUCH!!!

  • Laizalanoa  - Thank you!

    This is really awesome.. What a relief! Thank you so much!

  • Kay

    Wow! Thank you! You are amazing and a lifesaver! These are so helpful!

  • Courtney  - Wonderful!

    I just got called as our new ward's Primary Secretary and am feeling overwhelmed as we try to merge two wards into one (boundaries changed). This is a huge blessing for me! Thank you so much for all the time it took to do this for all of us.

  • annjeanette  - 2014

    Will someone being doing something similar for 2014? These have saved our primary many times this year and something for 2014 would be wonderful! Thank you.

  • shala johnson  - 2014 talks

    I've been looking for the 2014 talks but so far haven't seen any. These come in very handy when a child forgets or is absent. I'll keep looking...

  • Rachel  - Would love a set for 2014

    These saved us in Primary on a regular basis. I had them on file in my ipad and was able to get children who had forgotten or who were asked to fill in to do a small talk at a moments notice. Would love it if you could do another set. Our Entire pres work as teachers full time and this has been a real time saver
