On the other side, write “Promises” and the following reference: D&C 89:18–21.
Have half of the children read the first set of scriptures and look for commandments the Lord has given us in the Word of Wisdom. Have the other children read the remaining scriptures and look for blessings He has promised us if we obey.
Discuss what the commandments and blessings mean.
Encourage application (playing a game):
Inviteone child to say, “I will live the Word of Wisdom by ______” and fill in the blank with something he or she will do to live the Word of Wisdom.
Then invite another child to repeat the phrase and the first child’s response and then add his or her own response.
Ask a third child to repeat the phrase and both of the other children’s responses and then add another response. Repeat as time allows, with each child adding a response.
