Mother’s day is quickly approaching! If you’re like me, then you have yet to buy something for those wonderful women in your life. Today I am sharing a great list of LDS Mother’s Day Gift Ideas that I have and love, and some things that are on my ‘wish list’. I hope my list will help make finding that perfect gift a little easier. Enjoy!

Mother's Day LDS Gift Ideas

I decided to split up my list into categories to make it a little easier to read. My list is not in any type of order, just FYI. 🙂


Books to Read

Let’s talk about books. I love reading, and read all the time…until I started school. Now I am busy reading school materials, but every now and then I try to squeeze in a little reading. I recently read “Once There Was A Mom”, and loved it!

Once There Was A Mom

This is a very quick read, but is such a wonderful book about Motherhood. A few days ago my mother-in-law had to watch my children for a few hours while my husband and I attended meetings. Before I left, I showed her the book and asked her to read it. When I got home, I found a wonderful little note from my Mother-in-law telling me that she had read the book to my children. Everyone loved it, and they even discusses mothers and all that they do.

“For every mom who has ever wondered if all the little things she does in a day make a difference, Once There Was a Mom offers hope and encouragement. Take it from someone who, like you, has read story after story, sung lullaby after lullaby, and even taken the batteries out of the toys once in a while! The truth is, little things are much more important than we may think. With contemporary, stylized illustration by artist Destin Cox, this charming gift book will bring a smile to the face of mothers of any age.”

Worth The Wrestle

This isn’t a book about women or mothers, but this is an absolutely AMAZING book! Last year I watched a piece of Sister Dew’s talk titled, “Engage in the Wrestle”, so when I heard about this book I knew I had to read it. It of course did not disappoint.

Worth the Wrestle Sheri Dew

After I received this book I showed it to one of my good friends, Danielle. She was very interested in it because she recognized the artist, James Christensen, that created the cover. She told me about the artist’s other paintings, and how she loved them. We wanted to know which painting was on the cover, so we looked inside and saw that it is named, “Hold to the Rod”. Did you happen to notice the rod at the top of the picture on the cover? This man is trying to hang on to all of his worldly possessions, while looking up to the rod. I did not notice this until my friend and I started looking at the painting a little more closely.

I have recommended this book to so many people since reading it. It is a wonderful book, and it would even make a great gift for graduation.

“In Worth the Wrestle, Sheri examines the process of asking good questions—whether those questions be doctrinal, procedural, historical, or intensely personal—and learning how to get answers. She demonstrates how to live by faith while seeking greater light and knowledge. And she testifies of principles that are worth wrestling for and of understanding that can be gained in no other way.”

One In Charity

This book is a compilation of talks from the 2016 BYU Women’s Conference. It’s from Women’s Conference, so this would be a great gift to give on the day we celebrate women!

Mother's Day LDS Gift Guide

I haven’t finished this book, but I have enjoyed what I have read. There are so many wonderful talks out there that we have never heard, so I always love when there are books that combine several amazing talks into one book. “One in Charity” includes talks from:

Elder Dale R. Renlund and Sister Ruth L. Renlund, Linda K. Burton, Barbara Morgan Gardner, Kathleen Hughes, Kristen M. Oaks, Camille Fronk Olson, Virginia H. Pearce, Sandra Rogers, Kevin J Warthen, and Brad Wilcox.

At the Pulpit

I couldn’t create a list of books celebrating women, and not include “At the Pulpit”! This is a huge book that includes fifty-four discourses given by Latter-day Saint women throughout the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

LDS Mother's Day Gift Guide

So, I haven’t had the opportunity to read this book, but It’s sitting on my desk just begging to be read! I have heard amazing things about this book, so I can’t wait until I have time to take a peek inside of it.

“Like Lucy Mack Smith, these women drew on inspiration and experience to declare their understanding of eternal truths. This book illustrates the history of women’s public preaching in the church, but its most important feature is the actual words of Mormon women. From the time of Emma Hale Smith’s earliest exhortations at meetings of the Nauvoo Relief Society, Latter-day Saint women have been charged to instruct their families and neighbors, their congregations and Relief Societies, and other organizations. The talks featured in this volume show Mormon women doing the spiritual and intellectual work inherent in a life of Christian faith—seeking to do good works, understand the atonement of Jesus Christ, and strengthen their own faith and the faith of those around them. These women endeavored to live what they believed and to help their listeners do so as well.”

Now let’s talk about music. As a Mother, I spend time in my car with my children. Now that they’re a little older, they almost always want to listen to music. My husband and I try to find uplifting music to play because our girls love to sing, and quickly learn the lyrics of songs. Here are a few of my favorites that I listen to in the car and at home.

City of Enoch

I received this CD a few weeks ago. I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy it as much as my other CD’s (below), but I have LOVED it! It is now one of my favorite albums.

LDS Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Every single song on this CD is amazing. A few of my favorites are: Sweet Redeemer, God So Loved the World, Because He Lives, and Bountiful, but seriously every song is amazing!

City of Enoch is the group that you have been waiting for, with a captivating sound that is described as “Lady Antebellum harmonies meet Christian Contemporary praise.” This debut album from a rising trio features new songs, great Christian covers, and an incredible new arrangement of the classic hit ‘He Hears Me’.”

Nathan Pacheco: Higher

I reviewed this beautiful album a few months ago, HERE. It didn’t take long for “Higher” to become one of my favorites. Every song on this CD is beautiful.Mother's Day Gift IdeasI immediately fell in love with the song “Forever,” but after listening to this album over and over, I have found a few more favorites. I think my new favorite song is “Come As You Are”. I could listen to that song over and over. Some other favorites of mine are: In Christ Alone, How Great Thou Art, Come Thou Fount, and Through All My Days.

Click HERE to visit Deseret Book and to read more about Higher.

I found out that Nathan Pacheco will be performing at the Scera Outdoor Theater (in Utah) this summer, and City of Enoch will be opening for him. I kind of geeked out when I found about this concert. I asked my husband if we could go, but I think I have to work on him a little bit more…or I’ll just have to go by myself. 😉 Tickets to this are only $10-30, so this would be another great Mother’s Day gift. You can read a little bit more about the concert and/or purchase tickets, HERE.

Mormon Tabernacle Choir

Do you know someone who loves the Mormon Tabernacle Choir? If so, you will have to buy them this brand-new Mormon Tabernacle Choir & Friends album. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir & Friends album features a compilation of songs that the Choir has sung with professional singers over the years. This CD is perfect for any Mormon Tabernacle fan.

LDS Mother's Day Gift Ideas

“The Mormon Tabernacle Choir has collaborated with some of the most legendary vocalists and performers over the years. For this album, the Choir has assembled an unprecedented collection of recordings taken from standout performances over the past 15 years. Most of these performances were recorded live at the 20,000+ seat Conference Center in Salt Lake City. In addition, some real gems were uncovered or created specifically for this album, including a performance recorded live before millions of viewers at the start of the 2002 Winter Olympics (Sting & Yo-Yo Ma performing “Fragile”) and new recordings such as Amy Grant’s “Thy Word,” The King’s Singers’ “I’m Running On,” and Santino Fontana’s ‘He Lives in You”.”

Piano Guys

My family LOVES the Piano Guys. We have a few of their cd’s, and listen to them frequently. I love that my children enjoy the songs even though it’s instrumental music. Two of our favorite CD’s are The Piano Guys and The Piano Guys 2. Each of these cd’s include some fun songs that my children recognize, like Star Wars, Charlie Brown, What Makes You Beautiful, and Lord of the Rings.

LDS Mother's Day Gift Ideas

I don’t think you can go wrong with a Piano Guys CD, they’re all amazing. If you haven’t checked out their music videos be sure you do, they’re just as awesome. My kids love watching them.

“The Piano Guys have become a YouTube sensation with their clever and inspiring takes on popular music and creative videos that accompany them. From Beethoven to Adele, their eclectic mix of classical, film score, rock, and pop favorites resonate with audiences across generations and from all walks of life.”

My next category includes different gifts that have to do with temples. I hope you like the gift ideas.


Ella and Anne Temple Dresses

Several months ago I saw the most beautiful temple dresses on Instagram. I saw that the shop that had them was a cute little shop called Ella and Anne. I clicked their link, and looked at all of the beautiful dresses in their shop.

Mother's Day LDS Gift Ideas

I had thought of buying one for my Mother for Christmas, but she told me that she didn’t need a new one. I’m thinking that she needs one, so I might have to get one for her as a late Mother’s Day gift.

I haven’t purchased an Ella and Anne dress, but it is definitely something that is on my ‘wish list’ to buy soon. They shared a Mother’s Day coupon code on Instagram, so head on over to their Instagram page, here, and grab that code!

Pin and Posy

My next temple gift is one that I love and cherish. I found Pin and Posy on Facebook and fell in love with her work. I headed on over to her shop and purchased a hand lettered picture of the Manti Temple with our anniversary for our anniversary. 🙂 It now sits on a shelf surrounded by family pictures.

LDS Mother's Day Gift Ideas

There are different styles to choose from, and you can customize it with your name and/or date. Wouldn’t this be a beautiful Mother’s Day gift? I sure love mine! She also has other great hand lettered products like The Family Proclamation, Articles of Faith, and more

Hi, friend! It’s Chrissy from Teepee Girl and I am so excited to share this free Article of Faith Bingo game with you!

Get this free Article of Faith Bingo game to help Acitvity Days boys and girls learn and remember their Articles of Faith.

Bingo is one of our favorite games. It’s easy, fun, and simple enough that my older kids can play it by themselves.

My oldest two girls are in Activity Days and they are trying to learn the Articles of Faith. I thought it would be so fun to make an Article of Faith Bingo game to help them learn more about the Articles of Faith, as well as the Articles of Faith themselves.

And I’ll be honest here. I don’t know the Articles of Faith like I should. If I had to, I could recite the first, fourth, and thirteenth. I make no promises after that. So this game is good for me too.

Because I can’t say with certainty which Article of Faith is about what doctrine, I put the answers on the calling cards. That’s to help struggling moms and teachers like me. I hope you don’t mind. 😉

Get this free Article of Faith Bingo game to help Acitvity Days boys and girls learn and remember their Articles of Faith.

This game is great for family night, as well as Sunday School, primary, and Activity Days. Or road trips, or Saturday afternoons when everyone says they’re bored.

We like to use fish crackers, chocolate chips, M&Ms, and raisins for the markers. But you can use anything. If your primary is food-free, little marbles, pieces of paper, or pebbles work great too.

But if I’m playing, there is chocolate involved. That’s the rule. 😉

I hope you can use this game to help your kiddos learn or remember the Articles of Faith. Please leave a comment and let Sheena and I know how you plan to use this game. Or snap a picture and tag us in Instagram, we love that.

Every first Sunday of the month a Bishopric member is in charge of Sharing Time in our Ward. After I shared my ideas for this week’s Sharing Time, here, my husband told me that he was teaching this week. We started talking about the idea in the outline, and other possible ideas. We both loved the idea in the outline, so I started sharing different ideas that he could do. We both liked the ideas, so I decided to share another Repentance Sharing Time Idea and some great printables with all of you.

Repentance Sharing Time Idea


The idea from the outline was to have children place pebbles inside of their shoes and compare it to sin. For this idea, you will be doing the same thing, but the children will be following the ‘Steps to Repentance’ to remove those bothersome pebbles from their shoes. I hope you enjoy the idea and the printables that I have shared.

Repentance Sharing Time Idea

Before Primary, print out my Repentance Sharing Time printables found at the bottom of this post. You will also need to gather pebbles (4 for each person/scenario). Instead of pebbles, you could use Tic-Tac candies, balled up pieces of paper, or rock candy (I have seen some pretty convincing rock candy that would be perfect to use).

You will need to cut out the ‘Steps to Repentance’ sheets, as well as the scenario circles. I didn’t include actual scenarios, but those shouldn’t be hard to come up with. If you need some ideas I shared some scenario cards for my Shiny Bicycle Sharing Time, HERE!

Before Primary, place the circles underneath chairs, around the Primary room, or have them posted on a bulletin/chalkboard. Invite a child up and have them choose a pair of shoes (or if they found a pair of shoes under the chair/around the room have them bring it to the front). Have them tell you what number they chose, and then read the matching scenario aloud. For example:

“You are kicking a ball in the house even though your Mother has asked you not to. You accidentally break a lamp, and when your Mother asks if you broke it, you lie and tell her ‘No’.”

After you have read the scenario to the children hand them 4 pebbles and have them place them inside of their shoe. Have the child walk around, and then discuss how sin/wrong choices are like those pebbles.


Steps to Repentance

Place the ‘Steps to Repentance’ footprints on the floor, and tell the children that there is a way to get those pebbles out of their shoes. It is by repentance. Quickly explain that there are STEPS to repentance that we need to follow in order to truly repent. Tell them that you have 4 footprints with each of the steps. They are going to go through each step, and discuss what they can do to repent. As they go through each step they will remove one pebble at a time. After the 4th step, they will no longer have pebbles in their shoe. You could have them share how it feels, and then compare that to how repenting can make us feel.

Steps to Repentance Handout

Repeat this until time runs out or until all scenarios have been read. You could even ask the children if anyone has ever followed these steps to repent, and have them share if they’d like.

Explain that because of Jesus Christ, we can repent and receive forgiveness of our sins. Bear testimony that repentance is a wonderful blessing from Heavenly Father and that it brings us happiness.

I created some little handouts that you could pass out as well (pictured above). And I thought it would be cute to give to the children as a handout with their very own bag of ‘pebbles’ (tic-tacs or rock candy).

I hope you enjoy this Sharing Time idea, and are able to use it for your lesson. I would love to hear if you do, and what you plan to do, so leave me a comment letting me know. Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day and a great Sharing Time.

I promised to post another thank you gift idea soon so here is one. 🙂 Primary can be a little crazy at times so this LDS Primary ‘Kit Kat’ Thank You Gift Idea is a great way to thank primary teachers or subs.

Give Me A Break!

Primary teachers worldwide would agree that they sometimes they could use a break! The gift tag says “You Deserve a Break! Thanks for Helping in Primary.”  I have also included a generic version that says “You Deserve a Break! Thanks for your help.’ You can use it to thank anyone!

I used the snack size Kit Kat bars that come in the packages of eight, like the one found (affiliate link) here. I tied the tags on with black embroidery floss.

LDS Primary ‘Kit Kat’ Thank You Gift Idea

I am a counselor in my ward’s Primary presidency. We need primary substitutes almost every week, and often they are asked last minute to fill in. A few months ago, I really felt that we needed to thank those who are willing to help, especially those willing to fill in at the last minute. So, I designed several LDS Primary Thank You Gift Ideas. This is one of my favorites. I placed all of the thank you treats in a basket, which we keep in our primary cabinet. When we have substitutes help, we let them choose a treat. It has worked great so far!

Be sure to check out my “We’d be Nuts if we didn’t thank you!” printable here, and a great Primary Teacher Birthday Kit Kat gift and coupon idea, HERE. I will be posting more Thank You printables soon, so check back often.

Sharing Time Ideas from the 2017 Outline

Encourage understanding (participating in an object lesson):Give each child a pebble. Ask the children to put the pebble in their shoe, and invite them to stand and walk. Ask the children how it feels to walk with a pebble in their shoe. Ask how sin is like the pebble. (It doesn’t feel good; it makes us unhappy.) Have them remove the pebble, and ask how repenting and receiving Heavenly Father’s forgiveness is like removing the pebble from our shoe. Explain that because of Jesus Christ, we can repent and receive forgiveness of our sins. Bear testimony that repentance is a wonderful blessing from Heavenly Father and that it brings us happiness.

Tip: For the activity in week 1, you could also invite one child to carry a bag filled with rocks and then show how repentance is like taking the rocks out of the bag.


Sharing Time Idea from Little LDS Ideas

I love this week’s idea given in the outline. I think the children will enjoy having pebbles placed in their shoes. I know that each Primary is different, so some of you may be looking for something else to do. Over the years I have shared quite a few Repentance Sharing Time Ideas, so that is what I am sharing with you today (I also shared a new idea that goes along with the outline, HERE!) I hope you enjoy them, and are able to use them.

Repentance Sharing Time Ideas


‘Sin Cans’ Repentance Sharing Time Idea

In the outline, they offer a tip of using cans instead of pebbles for this week’s lesson. If you are thinking of doing cans, then you will want to check out my ‘Sin Cans’ idea and printables. I used these printables and lesson idea for a FHE lesson years ago, and then shared it as a Sharing Time idea last year.

 You will begin your activity by inviting a child up to the front and have them put on the backpack. You will introduce your ‘helper’ and then grab a can. Share the ‘sin’ that is on the can with the other children, and place it in the backpack. Grab another can, read it, and add it to the backpack. Continue until all the cans have been read and placed in the backpack. You can then ask the child if the backpack is a little heavy. If they say ‘NO’, throw in some extra cans.

Explain to the children that sin ‘CAN’ weigh us down. Show the picture of Christ in Gethsemane again, and explain that because of Christ’s Atonement, our sins ‘CAN’ be forgiven and our load ‘CAN’ be lightened.

You will find the idea and all the printables using the link above.


Sin Spots

This is a favorite of mine, and I think the children enjoy it as well. I have used my ‘Sin Spots’ Repentance Sharing Time Idea several times, and it’s always a hit. I have done it different ways over the years, sometimes I invite a child up and place the spots on them, and then I have used an idea that I found on Sugardoodle where I come into the Primary room with the spots on myself. That was really fun because the children noticed immediately and wanted to know what the spots were. I just pretended I didn’t know what they were talking about until it was time for Sharing Time.

I sometimes will also do a fun object lesson that I like to call the ‘Clean Again’ Chocolate Sauce Object lesson.

Click HERE to view my ‘Sin Spots’ Repentance Sharing Time Idea!


The Shiny Bicycle

Have you seen the ‘Shiny Bicycle’ Mormon Message? It’s a favorite in my home, and it’s a great video to share when teaching about repentance. A couple years ago I used this video as part of my Sharing Time and created a fun little ‘Find the Bicycle’ game to go with it.

Repentance Sharing Time Idea Shiny Bicycle

Mixed in with the bicycle cards are ‘sin cards’. If one of these cards are flipped over, the children will have to follow the steps of repentance and share how they would repent for that mistake. I also have some other great ideas that I used as part of this lesson, so be sure to click the link below and take a look at what I shared.

Other Repentance Sharing Time Ideas

I have a lot of ideas that I have shared over the years. To view them all, just click HERE or visit my Sharing Time Index (found in the Primary tab) and click on ‘Repentance Sharing Time Ideas’.


I hope you enjoy this week’s Repentance Sharing Time ideas that I have shared. I would love to hear what you think, and what you decide to do, so leave me a comment letting me know.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day and a great Sharing Time.

I have this amazing friend, Danielle. Each week she is stuck in the car with me for 2 hours as we drive to and from our weekly ‘Gathering’ for Pathway (haven’t heard of Pathway, check it out HERE!). For two hours we talk about all kinds of things. A few weeks ago she shared something with me that her Religion teacher shared with her, and she told me I needed to make a printable. Her teacher had shared a great system to studying the General Conference talks, I loved the idea, so I told her that I would do it! Today I am sharing my General Conference Note Sheets and Mini Binder Sheets with you. I hope you like them and put them to good use.

General Conference Study Sheets

When my friend told me about this great idea, I thought of creating it on a normal piece of paper, which I did, but I have this obsession with these cute little mini-binders (pictured above). I have quite a few laying around my house just waiting to be used, so I decided to create some General Conference Note sheets that would fit into mini-binders as well. You can find these cute mini binders at Target (sometimes in the Dollar Spot), here is one that I  found online.


General Conference Note Sheets

Here is a peek at the full sized General Conference Note Sheet that I created. The original idea was to come up with 3 questions and write them down at the top of your sheet of paper. You would use one sheet of paper for each talk, so you will be writing these questions onto each sheet. Next, you write the speaker’s name, the date (either the date you read it or the date of the talk), and then you write the title/topic.

General Conference Note Sheets

The next section is split into 4 square sections: “Scriptures Explained”, “Doctrine Explained”, “Personal History Shared”, and “Warnings/Promises”. The last section is a ‘To-Do’ section.

You could use these General Conference Note Sheets any way you’d like. You could fill in each of the squares when you hear/read anything that answers one of your questions. You could also focus on the topic of each talk, and write down anything that has to do with that topic (scriptures, doctrine, personal history, etc.).

The ‘To-do’ section is where you will apply the teachings to your life. Write down the things that you need to do in order to apply those teachings or promptings that you receive while you study.

Print as many of these pages as you’d like and keep them in a binder or folder. I just shared my 22 Weeks of General Conference Study Guide (HERE) that you could use as well to help you study each of the General Conference addresses.


General Conference Notes Mini-Binder

As I said before, I am a little obsessed with cute little mini binders (like this one from Target), so if you are like me, then my mini-binder sheets will be perfect! These sheets are set up just like my 8.5″ X 11″ sheet, but they look just a little different and are a smaller size (5.5″ X 8.5″). The first sheet has space for you to write down your 3 questions and the speaker information, but under that I included ‘speech bubbles’ for you to write down favorite quotes from each of the talks.

The next two pages are the 4 sections: “Scriptures Explained”, “Doctrine Explained”, “Personal History Shared”, and “Warnings/Promises”. Another page has 2 sections: “How Will I apply These Teachings to My Life” and the “To-Do” section.

I also included a blank sheet of lined paper that you could use to write down any other notes, quotes, or ideas that you may have. If you are going the mini-binder route, then I couldn’t leave you without your very own mini version of my ’22 Weeks of General Conference,’ so I create 2 mini versions of that as well. There is one that has the months labeled, and one with blank months.

Since the mini sheets are 5.5″ X 8.5″ I was unable to fit two to a sheet. 🙁 But they are black and white, so I hope that will make up for having to print a mini sheet onto a whole sheet of paper. 😉

I hope you enjoy my General Conference Note Sheets, and use them to study the April 2017 General Conference talks. These would make such a great Visiting Teaching gift or a great challenge for the youth. How will you use these General Conference Note Sheets? I would love to hear if you use them, and  if you like them, so let me know by leaving a comment.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.

Just a few weeks ago we had the opportunity to be uplifted and edified as we listened to General Conference. For a few years now I have created a study guide that you can use to help you study the talks over the next 6 months, as we are instructed to do by our Prophet. Today I am finally sharing my April 2017 General Conference Study Guide! I also shared  some great note taking sheets that you could use as you study the talks, HERE!

April 2017 General Conference Study Guide

As usual, you will find each of the talks from the April 2017 General Conference, separated by topics. You will also find a Weekly Calendar on the right side of the sheet where you will write down the topic that you have chosen to study that week. There are only 17 topics, so you will be studying some topics for more than 1 week.


April 2017 General Conference Study Guide Sheets

I have created 2 different styles and 2 different colors for you to choose from. The study guide pictured above is my colorful dots sheet, and it includes the months already labeled. I have also included a black and white dots version (pictured below). I also created a blank calendar, just in case you don’t want to begin in May.

April 2017 General Conference Study Guide

In the bottom right hand corner I included a quote from Benjamin De Hoyos, from this past General Conference:

“Without a doubt, one of the great standards of these latter days is this magnificent General Conference, where the great work and plan of our Heavenly Father ‘to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man’ is continually proclaimed.”

Are you ready to start studying these great talks? Use the links below to print out the April 2017 General Conference Study Guide of your choice. These would also make great printables to take to those you visit or home teach.

Pick Me Up Treat Tags for Relief Society & Young Women Groups | LDS Printables | Friendshipping Tags | Free Printable

Hello! It’s Marissa from Prickly Pear Design Co.  and I’m excited to be sharing these cute little Pick Me Up Treat Tags with you today!  A few weeks ago, I got called to be the Compassionate Service Leader. When I heard those words, I automatically thought “babies, surgeries, funerals…” but compassionate service is so much more than that.

Compassionate service is a chance not only to help out in times of need, but to uplift. And as I thought about how I might serve the sisters in my ward, I realized that we’re all in need of that uplifting.

So I gave myself a challenge. I wanted to have a few ideas on hand that I could easily put together for sisters that might appreciate a little bit of love and uplifting. What I came up with is cute, cost effective and completely perfect for Compassionate Service Leaders, Visiting Teachers, Young Women Leaders, and anyone that wants to spread a little love to a friend. So I’m sharing all three ideas here today and hope that you can put them to use!

Life Gets Sweeter with Gratitude Treat Tag | Pick Me Up Treat Tags for Relief Society & Young Women Groups | LDS Printables | Friendshipping Tags | Free Printable

Life Gets Sweeter Treat Tag

This is perfect to use as a quick Visiting Teaching drop off for those months when life gets busy or as a challenge for you to take on together. It seems like when life gets tough, and sometimes even when it’s not, we forget to be grateful. Pair that with a drink they can sip while they write down what they’re grateful for and things are bound to start looking up.To keep it cost effective: Check the dollar bins at Target for cute pens, ribbon, and notebooks. Buy drinks in bulk rather than single cans. (The steno pad and pen shown above totaled out just over a $1!)

You Are One Tough Cookie Treat Tag

It’s true that something sweet makes tough times a little bit more bearable. These might come in handy as a reminder for Young Women who seem to be struggling or for Relief Society Sisters who have had surgery, sick kids, etc. To save time: pick up pre-made cookie dough or even cookies from the local bakery. As I put these together, I kept thinking “I would have loved this during my last trimester” and I’d bet the sisters expecting babies in your ward would agree!


He Loves You {and we do too!} Treat Tag | Pick Me Up Treat Tags for Relief Society & Young Women Groups | LDS Printables | Friendshipping Tags | Free Printable

He Loves You {And We Do Too!} Treat Tag

Spiritual pep talk. Who doesn’t need one of those from time to time right? Even if you’re not feeling down, knowing that someone is cheering for you sends good vibes all over the place. This tag references 1 Nephi 11:17 and God’s love for us. I especially like the fact that when the angel asks Nephi about the condescension of God he replies:

“I know that he loveth his children; nevertheless, I do not know the meaning of all things.”

It doesn’t matter if you know it all or not, God loves you. And that’s plenty to go on. I paired this tag with flowers. To keep it cost effective: Buy a big bunch of inexpensive blooms from the grocery store, then split the bunch into 4-5 smaller bunches. Tissue paper and twine from the dollar store completed the look and I used my scissors to scallop the edge of the tissue before I pulled the sheets apart.

Treat Tag Printing Tips

• Print these on your home color printer or send them to your local copy shop.

• 6 tags (2 of each style) print to a 8.5″ x 11″ page. Finished size for He Loves You and Life Gets Sweeter: 4″x4″; Finished size for One Tough Cookie: 4″ x 2″.

• I recommend using the highest print settings and printing on brochure or photo paper, or a bright white cardstock.

Sharing Time Idea from the 2017 Outline

Encourage understanding (singing a song and making choices): Sing “I Feel My Savior’s Love” (CS, 74–75). Write several case studies that illustrate how a child could follow one of Christ’s teachings. Also include a scripture reference where that teaching can be found. Below are some examples.

• Sara had asked her younger sister not to use her crayons, but her sister used them anyway. To be like Jesus, Sara could:

a. Get angry with her sister.

b. Hide her crayons.

c. Forgive her sister.

(Matthew 18:21–22)

• John is playing soccer with his friends, and he notices another boy standing by himself watching the game. To be like Jesus, John could:

a. Make fun of the boy for being alone.

b. Ignore the boy and continue playing with his friends.

c. Invite the boy to play soccer with them.

(John 13:34)

Ask a child to read one of the case studies. Then ask him or her to read the answers one at a time. Invite the other children to stand when they hear the answer that would be following Jesus’s example. Invite a few children to read the scripture out loud, and discuss what Jesus taught. Discuss how following Jesus’s example in these situations can help us feel the Savior’s love. Repeat with each case study.

Encourage application: Invite the children to do what Jesus would want them to do this week. Tell them that next week you will ask some of them to share what they did and how they felt the Savior’s love.


Sharing Time Ideas from Little LDS Ideas

For my April 2017 Week 4 Sharing Time Idea, I used the case studies, from the outline (plus a few more from a previous Friend magazine), to create a matching game. Since this week talks about feeling our Savior’s love, I decided to use hearts as part of the matching game. The children will be reading the case studies and scripture, and then looking for the matching heart half. I hope you enjoy my lesson idea.

April 2017 Week 4 Sharing Time Idea


Before Primary you are going to want to first print out my April 2017 Week 4 Sharing Time Idea printables (found below). My printables include 6 pages of hearts that include each of the case studies plus extra heart halves with wrong choices. You will cut all of the hearts out and cut them in half (only the ones that are whole hearts).

Using a poster-board or chalkboard, place a picture of Christ in the middle. Then place all of the heart halves around the picture. I would place the case studies on one side of the picture, and all of the ‘answers’ on the other side.


How to Play

Invite a child up to the front and have them choose a heart half (left side of heart). Have them read the scenario aloud, and then the scripture found at the bottom. They will then search the other halves until they find the answer that they think best fits their scenario, and the one that follows Jesus’s example.

Just a hint…If they choose a blue scenario, then the matching answer will be one of the blue halves. I thought this might make finding it a little easier, and help to not take too much time reading through each one. 😉

Discuss how following Jesus’s example in these situations can help us feel the Savior’s love. Once a match is found, you could place the heart halves together and have them place it closer to the picture of Christ or in another spot on your chalkboard. Continue by inviting another child up to choose another heart.

To close, invite the children to do what Jesus would want them to do this week. Tell them that next week you will ask some of them to share what they did and how they felt the Savior’s love.
