“Dear Parents and Teachers,” Friend, Nov. 2014, back cover
In last month’s general conference, Elder Oaks taught, “We should love all people, be good listeners, and show concern for their sincere beliefs.”* We can help children look for the good in other people and respect religions and cultures that are different from their own. Start by reading “Prayers and Cathedrals” on page 4 and trying the fun ideas and recipe on page 6.
Bringing Primary Home: You can learn about this month’s Primary sharing time theme on page 42. You’ll find a short lesson and ideas for talking with your children, along with a fun activity.
Giving Thanks: Read “Following Jesus: Be Generous” (page 26) and talk about how we can be generous with expressions of gratitude. Use the “Thank-You Cards” (page 39) and have children write thank-you notes to their family and friends.
Patriarchal Blessings: Is someone in your family or ward preparing to receive a patriarchal blessing? Use “Gifts from Heaven” (page 2) to help children understand more about what a patriarchal blessing is. Find other child-friendly resources about this topic at lessonhelps.lds.org.
