Faith in God Challenge

A “Learning and Living the Gospel” activity

Agency is the ability we have to choose for ourselves. It is a precious gift Heavenly Father has given us. When we choose to follow Jesus Christ’s example, we are closer to Heavenly Father. Some choices we make can have eternal consequences, so we need to be extra careful about the things we do!

Sing the hymn “Choose the Right” (Hymns, no. 239). Look for the answers to the following questions in the hymn:

  1. Who helps guide you to make the right choice?

  2. Who tries to get you to make the wrong choice?

  3. How does choosing the right make you feel?

Share your testimony in your next family home evening about what agency and choosing the right mean to you.
