I am a child of God
Friend Feb. 2007, suggestion #  1
 
Display the children’s names as well as the names of several ancient prophets on wordstrips.
Ask what all of these names have in common.
Let the children brainstorm ideas (see “Brainstorming,” TNGC,160–61).

Read together Abraham 3:22–24, and explain that we all lived with Heavenly Father in the premortal life.
Tell the children that we do not remember our lives before earth, but because of the scriptures, we know a little of what happened there.
Ask the children to find out which of all of God’s spirit children was the firstborn by looking up D&C 93:21.

Several Primary songs talk about our premortal life. Play a listening game using songs listed under “Premortal Existence” in the topical index of the Children’s Songbook. Have the pianist play first one measure, then two measures of a song. Keep adding a measure until the children guess the name of the song. After the children guess the song, sing the entire song, pointing out the lines that tell about our life with Heavenly Father before we came to earth.

Explain that we were all spirit brothers and sisters in the premortal life.
We call each other “brother” or “sister” because those titles reflect our spiritual relationship to each other.

Bear testimony that we are spirit children of Heavenly Father.

Sing “I Am a Child of God” (pp. 2–3)
