June 2015 Week 4 Sharing time lesson .By the power of the Holy Ghost, we may know the truth of all things.

 I borrowed this idea from the Friend magazine and adapted it to fit this weeks lesson:

Objective: Each child will understand How a testimony is gained through the Holy Ghost and what a Testimony is and how to share it with others.
Preparation: Bring a picture of each of the following, Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, Joseph Smith
and the Book of Mormon , a temple, President Monson.
 Also a white glove with velcro dots or tape to attach pictures.
Also bring some of the following kinds of gloves and ask some Sunbeams to hold each pair for the
Primary to see.
1. Rubber gloves
2. Doctor’s gloves
3. Biking gloves
4. Winter gloves
Read Moroni 10:5 together, and testify that the Holy Ghost will help us learn the truth. Post the Card with the scripture on the board. Tell the children that sometimes they may get a warm, peaceful feeling while at church, while doing acts of kindness, or as they pray and read the scriptures. Explain that this peaceful feeling is the Holy Ghost letting them know that these things are true and right. This helps us gain a testimony.
Suggested Lesson Development: Ask the children how each of the pairs of gloves are used?
Explain that gloves help us with our work, keep us warm and protect our hands. Tell the children that they are going to learn about a new kind of glove, one that they have probably never seen.
Present the white glove and tell the children that this glove represents the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost is a member of the Godhead and does not have a body of flesh and bone. But He is someone that can teach us important things by speaking to our hearts and minds. He tells us when things are true; He helps us gain a Testimony.
Discussion: What are some of the things that the Holy Ghost tells us are true?
* Heavenly Father?
* Jesus Christ?
* Joseph Smith?
* The church?
* President Monson?
Show each of the pictures of each item as the children think of answers. You may need to help by giving ideas to guide them towards the five principles of a pure testimony.
Explain to the children that when we bear a testimony we should include at least one or more of these things. Expressing thanks for parents, brothers and sisters, teachers, home, blessings, etc…is commendable but it is not our testimony.
Presentation: Bear your testimony while using the glove to show the children what a pure testimony really is. Use the following words as a guide, but allow the Holy Ghost to direct what you say.
1. I know that God is our Father in Heaven and He loves us.
2. I know that Jesus Christ is His Son, our Savior and Redeemer.
3. I know Joseph Smith is a prophet of God, and he was the instrument through which the gospel of Jesus Christ was restored to the earth. He translated the Book of Mormon by the gift and power of God.
4. I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lord’s church on the earth today.
5. I know this Church is led by a living prophet who receives revelation.
Participation: Invite the children to take home the handout and teach about testimony in family Home evening.  If children have brothers and sisters in Primary encourage them to teach it together. Invite them to bear their testimonies to their families.
Scripture Discussion: Use the following scriptures to supplement your discussion as needed, D&C 62:3, Alma 32:23

click on the pictures and you should be able to save them, and then print.
