“Scripture Time Fun,” Friend, June 2021
Sing “I’m Trying to Be like Jesus” (Children’s Songbook, 78–79).
Heavenly Father gives us commandments. He also wants us to make choices to do other good things (see Doctrine and Covenants 62:5, 7–8).
Read the story on page 4 and talk about Chung’s choice. What good choices have you made today? Together, make a CTR shield to remind you to choose the right. You could draw it on a poster or make the shape out of items in your home.
Sing “Reverence Is Love” (Children’s Songbook, 31).
Jesus Christ taught, “That which cometh from above is sacred, and must be spoken with care” (Doctrine and Covenants 63:64). That means we should show respect and love to Heavenly Father and the things that are important to Him.
Turn to page 24 to learn more about showing respect. Then do the activity together.
Sing “Help Me, Dear Father” (Children’s Songbook, 99).
Now draw a picture of you, your family, and the Savior. Talk about ways you can show love for each other, like Jesus does. You could practice saying sorry and forgiving each other by acting it out.
Sing “When I Am Baptized” (Children’s Songbook, 103).
Find items around your home that remind you of baptism. A cup of water could remind you of how we are baptized by immersion. A piece of white cloth could remind you of how we wear white. A blanket could remind you of the warm feeling of the Holy Ghost. What else can you think of?
Sing “Teach Me to Walk in the Light” (Children’s Songbook, 177).
Jesus taught that His Church should have bishops to lead and help the members (see Doctrine and Covenants 72:2).
Say thanks to your bishop or branch president by doing something kind. You could write him nice notes or bring him a treat. You could even do your plan without letting him know who did it!
