Thoughts: To review the lesson from last week – “Recognize that the Apostles and the Prophet were once children who grew up to be adults and chose to grow their testimony of Jesus Christ”
Identify Doctrine: I will read D&C 93:11-16. I want to emphases again to the children that it is possible and essential to grow our testimonies. That even Jesus did not receive all of the knowledge at first, but that it took hard work and practice to learn the scriptures and to commune with God. And that in the pre-mortal existence we used our testimonies as our weapon to defeat Satan. In Revelations 12:11, the scriptures tell us that we overcame Satan through the atonement and the power of our testimonies. And that God’s prophets and apostles have learned of Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father, and the Holy Ghost has borne testimony to them, just as the Holy Ghost can tell us that things are true. That each and each one of them can grow a testimony of Jesus Christ and a personal relationship with God.
The I am going to show this movie on youtube of the testimonies shared in General Conference. This is really well done with pictures of Christ and soft music in the background.
And then close with my testimony of Jesus Christ.
