“I know I can repent when I
make a mistake"
Friend July 2005, suggestion # 1
To help the children memorize
D&C 58:42, write the words of the scripture on large paper strips.
Post them in random order on the chalkboard.
After the children find and read the verse, have them
close their scriptures.
Invite two or three children to put the words of the scripture in order on the board. Repeat the scripture together.
Remove several words and repeat again.
Continue removing words until the board is blank.
Sing "Repentance" (p. 98).
To play a game teaching repentance, draw a large circle on a piece of heavy paper and divide it into four sections.
Write one of the four principles listed above in each of the sections.
Attach a paper arrow in the center of the circle to spin, or place the circle on the floor and use a coin or other small object to toss onto it.
Prepare case studies (see TNGC, pp. 161–62) with situations requiring repentance that reflect the needs of your Primary.
Sent His Son" (pp. 34–35).
For larger Primaries:
Divide the children into smaller groups and play the game in each group so more children can participate.
