Primary 5 Ideas
This course of study teaches about the restoration of the church of Jesus Christ in the latter days through the Prophet Joseph Smith. As you share and discuss the historical accounts given in the lesson and the passages from the Doctrine and Covenants and the Pearl of Great Price, the children can gain stronger testimonies of the restoration of Christ’s church and of the divine mission of the Prophet Joseph Smith. They can also gain a love and appreciation for the Saints who endured hardships and persecutions yet remained true to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Encourage the children to read at home, either by themselves or with their families, the selected passages given in the “Suggested Home Reading” section at the end of each lesson. As the children learn important principles from these lessons, they will grow in their desire to keep the covenants they have made with God and give service in his church throughout their lives. These truths will also give them strength to resist temptations in today’s world.
