My blog address is "primaryimpressions" because it seems that my ideas sometimes will come as impressions in the middle of the night! Whether you are a new chorister, or have been in the calling as long as I have, you are always looking for new ideas!

We'll Bring The World His Truth
I am so excited for our Primary Program. One of the songs that I chose for our program was We'll Bring The World His Truth. This was so much fun to teach. I taught them the story about the 2,000 stripling warriors. I had a couple of children come up and be warriors and another be Helaman. The Junior Primary children love to act out stories. Use any kind of little props like a play sword or bow and arrow to help them feel like warriors. Explain how much Helaman loved these young men and how they were taught by their mothers to be faithful and obedient. Also explain the first part of the song which says, "We have been born as Nephi of old, to goodly parents who love the lord". Have them turn to that scripture and read it. I really like to help the children understand the message of each song they learn. They learned this song so fast and when they sing, it gives me goose bumps. I love to talk to them about my son who is a missionary serving in Texas and how important missionary work is. This is an exciting time we live in and the Lord is counting on us to spread the gospel message to the world! My son is the tall blonde missionary. This was taken at the Houston Temple where he was able to enjoy being the escort for the man next to him who he baptized a year earlier. What an amazing experience for him!
For our program I am going to have the children sing the first verse and when they hit the chorus I have asked the young men and young women in our ward to stand up and start singing with them. I will then have the audience sing the second verse and the very last line of the song, where it repeats "To bring the world His truth", I will have the primary kids sing only. I hope this will touch the hearts of all those who participate!
