Primary Handout Lesson 21

I know.... I know..... I pretty much stink at this blogging thing.  It's been an embarrassing amount of time since I last posted anything.  Life is nutso.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it.  We've moved... AGAIN. Got settled in. Going full throttle and I finally got a calling in our new ward after 9 months of nothing. So here I am... not in YW's anymore but Primary!  Teaching the 8-11yr olds.  Fun! 

This Sunday's lesson is about Joseph Smith and how he managed to always forgive those who persecuted him.  We will be talking about how he was tarred and feathered even.  But still had love in his heart.  

I designed this little handout that you are welcome to use if you'd like.  I added feathers to the figure as you can see in the photo.  I will be asking the kids to keep forgiveness in their hearts throughout the week and each time they get their feelings hurt or someone isn't nice to them.... they can think about Joseph Smith and how mean and cruel people were to him.  Then.... each time they forgive someone they can pull a feather off the handout to eventually reveal a FULL and HAPPY heart. 

Just a fun little idea.  Have a great weekend!


P.S.  I got the fun feathers at Hobby Lobby.  It was a colorful boa!  Enjoy!



  1. Hi. Love the idea. Just want ot know the dimension of the handout with the feathers.

    1. Hi Carole.... You can copy and paste it into Word and size it as large or small as you want to. I made mine 5” wide by 6” tall. Thanks for asking!

  2. Thanks for the info.
    Have a nice day ;-)

  3. I have followed your blog over the years off and on and have always been so impressed with your talent and your willingness to share! I am also currently teaching the Valiant 11 class and I love it!
    Thank you for your efforts...I know you will be richly blessed!

    1. Thanks for those kinds words! I'm always happy to share!

  4. I just found your blog and I am so glad you are in primary teaching the same aged kids as me!! I am looking forward to your ideas! You are so creative! I really need to find ways to get my kids excited about the lessons I teach them. 10 and 11 year olds are hard to make smile!!!


Have something nice to say?
