How to prepare a talk in Primary
SLC March 2000
1. Choose a scripture.
2. Tell what the scripture means.
3. Tell a personal or a gospel story that relates to the scripture.
4. Bear testimony.
(This simple outline for preparing talks was given at the Primary General Board Training Meeting, March 2000)
“Perhaps the perfect pattern in presenting faith-promoting stories is to teach what is found in the scriptures and then to put a seal of living reality upon it by telling a similar…thing that has happened in our dispensation and to our people and - most ideally - to us as individuals.”
(Elder Bruce R.McConkie, New Era, July 1987).
