{Sharing Time} Jesus Christ was chosen to be our Savior

I love what's in the outline! There are so many options to be creative with the little letters!


Introduce the doctrine: Write on the board “Jesus Christ was ______ to be our Savior.” Have the letters c, h, o, s, e, and n scattered around the room. Let the children unscramble the letters to complete the sentence. Ask them to read Moses 4:2 to check their answer. Read the statement on the board together.




Here's my idea:

Attach each letter to the backs picture in any order. Then flip the pictures (so only the letters show) onto the board/table.

On the board write:

How was Jesus chosen to be our Savior in these pictures?


Events that I've chosen for the download:

The birth of Jesus: 
Heavenly Father gave Jesus a body so that He could come to Earth. While on the Earth, He was perfect. In order for Jesus to be able to save us so we can return to be with Heavenly Father, He needed to come to Earth.

Jesus was Baptized:
Because Jesus was perfect, He didn't need to be baptized. He was baptized to show us and to follow Heavenly Father. He was chosen to be an example to us.

Garden of Gethsemane:
Here in the Garden, Jesus was chosen and volunteered to suffer for our sins, suffer for when we are hurt and need help. He was in so much pain that He bled from the pores (have the kids look at the back of their hand and point out their pores) on His body. He was chosen because He loves us and wants us to return to live with Heavenly Father.

The Resurrection:
Because Jesus was resurrected, we will be too. He was chosen to do this because without it our bodies and spirits would not be able to rise again after we die.

(I included these because they are evidence of Him being our Savior with the piercings on His hands and feet. You can easily leave these out and choose other pictures, but I love that we can know that He visited these people and other after He died)

Jesus Visits the Nephites and blesses the children
Jesus visits the Apostles


Another way to use the fun letters, is you could have a race from one side of the room to the other with 2 sets of pictures and letters. And the "teams" try and figure out what the word is.
