Lessons from the Book of Mormon as taught by S.J. Hollist, in
Every few months, each Primary class is asked to give the lesson during Sharing Time. Usually the Primary Presidency gives this lesson, but on the last Sunday of each month it is presented by one of the Primary classes. My class got the opportunity to do it a second time for the year in May.
The Theme for May was, "Heavenly Father planned for me to come to a family. I can strengthen my family now."
The priesthood can bless and strengthen our families.
With the oldest boy in the class representing a priesthood leader, have the other children close their eyes and attempt to walk through the room. Have the "priesthood leader" guide them.
