I will serve my family
CSMP-booklet 2007 Sept.. week 2

Review the story of Nephi’s broken bow (1 Nephi 16:17–32).

Ask the children to think of ways they can serve others within their own families, as Nephi did.

Have the children stand in a circle.
Have one child hold on to the end of a ball of string, tell one way to serve a family member, and toss the ball to another child. Continue having children hold on to the string, tell ways they can serve in their families, and toss the string until all of the children are holding onto the string and it has woven a large web.

Explain that serving others weaves a web of kind deeds and love that touches everyone.

Sing “Jesus Said Love Everyone” (CS, 61).
