Jesus Christ Saves Me from Sin and Death

Friend April 2017 “Family Night Fun” Object lesson to explain the Atonement.

  • Pour some salt onto a plate. This represents us before we sin.

  • Now sprinkle pepper on the salt. The pepper is like sin. It keeps us away from Heavenly Father.

  • Rub the spoon on a towel. Then move it slowly above the salt and pepper. The pepper will stick to the spoon. Jesus’s Atonement lets us repent and get rid of our sins

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ensign February 2020 “Family Study Fun”

open cupboard with food containers

Christ’s Atonement is “an infinite atonement” (2 Nephi 9:7), but what does infinity mean? Open your cupboards and find various containers of cooking foods, such as: Sugar, Salt, Rice. Take turns guessing how many grains of each item would go into one cup. For example: Sugar = 960,000, Salt = 2,000,000,Rice = 8,000

Discussion: Name other things of which there is a numberless amount (sand at the beach, stars in the sky, cells in the body). How is the reach of Christ’s Atonement greater than all of these? Why is it called infinite?

Delights in Righteousness

Friend February 2020 “Come Follow Me for Little Ones” Read 2 Nephi 10:23 together and help your little ones say, “I can make good choices.” Flip through the Friend and help your children smile and give a thumbs up—or whatever gesture means “good job” in your culture—whenever you find a picture of someone making a good decision.
