Faith is like a seed Family Home Evening
We had a really wonderful family home evening tonight that was simple and really kept the kids attention. As you can tell, tonight we learned all about Faith, and likened it unto a seed. The printable I made above includes some of the words to my favorite primary song, Faith. I can’t hear it without tearing up. I love having printables like this for one reason. I always print them off and display them for our lesson, but then we hang them on a magnet board right by our kitchen table for the whole week. It is a great reminder of what we learned and what we are focusing on that week.
After we sang our opening song, Faith, we discussed with the kids what faith was. We read in Alma 32 and the kids told us some of the things they had faith in. Things like Jesus, the Holy Ghost, church and the temple 🙂 Then we talked about how we can compare faith to a seed, and just like a seed, our faith needs certain things to help it grow to become big and strong.
First we talked about how it can be hard to start planting seeds, so you can use different gardening tools to make it easier. It can also be hard to begin growing your faith, that is why we have parents and primary teachers that will share their faith and testimonies with us. (This is when my favorite quote of the night came…Skylar says, “I don’t know Mom…my faith is pretty ginormous already.” 🙂
