{Sharing Time} The scriptures are the word of God


I love in the outline choosing favorite scripture stories from the different books. So I've made matching halves for a bunch of different stories. You can print whatever ones you'd like. The halves are about 8x10 so it's big enough for all to see. You can either put one half on the board and hide the other halves or put the others under random chairs. Then once a match has been made then you can talk about the story associated with the picture.

On the board, write "The Scriptures are _______________" and ask the kids, write their responses on the board. After they've answered fill in the blank with "the word of God".

There are many wonderful stories throughout the scriptures. Can you name the 4 books of scripture that we read? (The Bible, the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price) these are called the standard words. Today we are going to learn about some of the stories from these precious books of scripture. (Hang up the halves that you are using - hide the other halves before Primary so that the kids don't know where they are)

Here are the pictures I've used:

Old Testament
Abraham and Isaac
Adam and Eve
Moses Parts Red Sea

New Testament
Jesus Calls His Apostles
Jesus was Baptized
Jesus Heals Jairus' Daughter
The Crucifixion
Parable of the Ten Lepers

Book of Mormon
Brother of Jared
Captain Moroni
Jesus Visits the Nephites
King Benjamin
Moroni Buries the Plates

Doctrine and Covenants (Church History)
The First Vision
Jesus visits Joseph Smith
Saints leave Nauvoo
Printing of the Book of Mormon

  1. Thank you for the great pictures and idea.

  2. Thank you, great idea! Did you print the pictures yourself or did you have them printed?

    1. I print them at a print shop there's nothing that beats that quality and then laminate them so I can reuse them either for my own boys or for another lesson/sharing time.

    2. Thanks, I took them to Staples and had them printed double size or 17x22. I should have had them laminated, if they survive through today I will do that.

  3. Thank you so much for all your wonderful work! I am printing tons of stuff!!

  4. printed these at home, love this idea, will work dandy for our junior primary, live in rural ward w/no access to print shop. Thanks for your hard work, and sharing!

  5. Thanks so much for these! It worked out so well for sharing time. I'm sure we will be using them throughout the whole year.
