Adam and Eve Teaching Their Children (Gospel Art Book [2009], no

Adam and Eve Kneeling at an Altar (Gospel Art Book [2009], no. 4)

Tell the Children that Adam was the 1st man (you may need to teach daddy=man, mommy=woman) and Eve was the first woman.

(Show a picture of Adam and Eve)   "God made a beautiful garden for them.   He told them to eat everything except the fruit of one tree.   If they ate that fruit, they would have to leave the Garden."

God also told Adam Eve to have children, but they could not as long as they stayed in the Garden of Eden. One day Adam and Eve decided to eat the fruit. ( Have everyone that is able eat a piece of fruit.)   God told them they must leave the Garden because they ate of the fruit.   (Show picture of Adam and Eve leaving the garden.)   Adam and Eve had many children.   Because they had children, you are here.   They taught their children about God.   (Show a picture of Adam teaching his children.)   He was a prophet."

You may also want to talk about how in the garden they did not have to work to make the garden grow or to have food.   Now we have to work very hard to make a garden grow and to have food.   (Have the children pantamime working in a garden and/or plant a garden now or during the week or plant a seed cup and watch it grow.)

Have a flashlight.   Go into a dark room (we use the bathroom).   Ask the kids if they can see.   Explain that it was very dark for the people.   There was no sun, moon or stars just like here.   Then the people heard a voice.   (If one of you speaks a foreign language have them say something 2 times.)   Then turn on the light.   The sun, moon and stars were back. (Move into your FHE room.)

Later the people saw a light and in the light they saw a person.   It was Jesus.   God said, "This is my Beloved son.   Hear Him."   Turn on the lights.   The dark was gone. Jesus taught the people many good things.   He taught them about the sacrament.   He healed the sick people.   Then he blessed the children. (Have Dad lay his hands on each child and show how Jesus would bless the children.)   It was a very special time for the people.

Here is the flannel board story from The Friend, October 1992, page 46.

This lesson should be much more reverent then the other ones.   Good luck with that.   Bear your testimony of Christ.

Suzette Won!!!

The title says it all.  John told me she won a new car.  He was right.  She deserves everything.  No other teacher has been able to John nearly as much as she did.
