- This section was revelation for David Whitmer, who would later become one of the witnesses to the Gold Plates.

Seek the Lord Early (Children’s #108)

- Read the following verses about God’s word, and discuss what they mean as well:
How can I listen to God’s word?
Blow up a balloon and write some of the analogies for God’s word on it. (Use a Sharpie and make sure it dries!) Then play “don’t let the balloon touch the floor” to keep God’s word from hitting the ground.
Families Can Be Together Forever (Children’s, #188)
- What is eternal life? Why do you think it’s the greatest of all the gifts of God?
- How is eternal life different than immortality?

- These two sections are almost the exact same, because John and Peter Whitmer both wanted to know what “would be of the most worth” in their lives.
- What was the answer?
- Why is bringing souls to Christ the greatest worth? How can we do that? Is it only missionary work?
How can I help someone come to Christ today?

- What is a witness?
- Why does the Lord use witnesses in His work? (see 2 Corinthians 13:1).
- Mary Whitmer also received a witness of the gold plates. The angel Moroni showed them to her as an acknowledgment of the sacrifices she made while Joseph, Emma, and Oliver were living in her home.
- How does this apply to us?
