I teach Primary Sharing Time. I love it.
I love the teaching, the stories, the kids, and the fun. When we talk about Jesus, I tell the children the stories of His life and the men and women He lived and worked with. When we talk about the courage to do what is right, I read from “Girls Who Choose God”. When we talk about faith, I tell them of both Nephi and Abigal.
I tell them stories from my own life and any stories of President Wixom that I can find.
I use pictures a lot. Aside from the pictures I bring myself, there are few pictures of women. I will be writing a letter to President Wixom and her counselors, asking them to consider including more pictures of women and girls in packets / manuals provided to Primary teachers.
I believe this will be a great advantage to both girls and boys. They will learn that both women and men can be examples of faith, courage, and service. And they can strive to be like them.Read More
