Teach Me to Walk in the Light (Hymns 304)
One of the purposes of mortality is to learn and gain as muchknowledge as we can before we return to our Heavenly Father. Ask someone toread D&C 93:36. Then discuss this quote from Elder David A. Bednar, “Younight think intelligence is being gifted in academic work, but intelligencealso means applying the knowledge we obtain for righteous purposes.”
Points to discuss:
1. How can you share the things you have learned for righteouspurposes?2. Ask someone to read D&C 88:118. We are taught to seeklearning by study and by faith. How does that help you to growspiritually?3.Ask your family what they think the Lord would have themlearn. (Make a list) Then read D&C 88:77-79. Add any to thelist that were not already mentioned. What things are youlearning now that will help you with the things on the list?
Pin the worm on the apple. Lay down the eight quote cards, withthe cards apple side up. One family member comes up and draws one of thecards. They read the quote that is on the card. Parents can choose todiscuss the quote if they wish. The person that drew the card gets the wormwith the matching number on his card. Have a different family memberblindfold them, spin them three times, and try to pin the worm as close asthey can to the worm on the core of the apple. Repeat until all familymembers have had a turn.
