Faith In God... A learning/reflection packet for those new to the program



I love the Faith in God program!! There are great ideas for activities, yet room for creativity and individuality. Everything about it is inspired. On the cover of this packet children can put a picture of themselves.

I've thought very carefully about how to track progress. In the book there are small boxes to check, but those boxes don't tell us what the children did, how the children felt and when they accomplished their activity.

Is tracking that important? I don't know. But I do know that we underestimate the power of reflection. It could be just a few sentences, "I taught a family home evening on prayer. It was fun because we posed my dad in a way NOT to pray and he fell over. It felt nice." Having that record is precious.

The Articles of Faith are meant to be understood. If children take the time to write on Sunday and discuss with family vocabulary, then they are going to get it. Writing is that extra step in confirming what they know. In this program children aren't just supposed to memorize!

I also like a bigger space to write testimony. Usually children's handwriting isn't the neatest and at least with more space it won't be as hard.

I printed and made copies (WATCH THE END!!! The last 6 pages are EITHER for BOYS or GIRLS!!!)

Hopefully, the things the children write will inspire and help them in the years to come. Feel free to mouse over the right corner below, then print. Please do not use for commercial purposes.

God does not need a genius.He simply scans the whole earth for those with faith and who are willing.You can never maintain a close relationship with God unless you spend time with him.

I noticed in one of your other posts that you speak Spanish. I am in a small ward here in Spain and my Spanish is not great. I'm in the primary presidency and I am the music person and the piano player. I"m sure you can see the train wreck that occurs every Sunday but hey we do our best right? I'm pretty sure the rest of the presidency are fairly new members and haven't really seen how primary functions. I don't like to jump in and take over because 1) they are learning and doing the best they know how to implement a program they have never really seen in action and 2)my remedial Spanish causes A LOT of lost in translation problems. With that said, if I give them a copy of something then it is more of a suggestion and they can decide if they want to use it or not. Is there anyway you could translate this into Spanish and send it to me? Or if you could send me a copy that I could change the words and I can translate it with google translate. There is such a need out here in the mission field for Spanish stuff. My email is bwlamb4@gmail.com thanks Becky
