I chose Heavenly Father’s plan
CSMP booklet 2006, February suggestion # 1
Have children choose the color they like best ~ red,
yellow, or blue ~ and stand in groups by an object that color.
Discuss choices we make: some are important; some are not.
Explain that our choice to follow Heavenly Father’s plan was very important.
Give each group one verse of “I Lived in Heaven” (CS, 4).
Have them share what their verse teaches us about Heavenly Father’s plan.
Sing the song.
Have the children make a set of the “armor of
God” out of paper (see Ephesians 6:11, 14–18;
Primary 4, lesson 25). Prepare “What would I do
if?” questions based on “My Gospel Standards,”
such as “What would I do if a friend asked me to
steal candy from a store?” (see “Teaching with
Questions,” TNGC, 68–70). Choose a child to read
a question, guess the standard, and label a piece
of the armor with the standard. After each piece
of armor is labeled, dress a child in the armor and
sing “The Holy Ghost” (CS, 105).
