I Am like a Star (Children’s #163)


3 Nephi 12:3–16


  • As we read these verses, each time we say “you,” point to yourself.
  • Do you remember the Sermon on the Mount that Jesus taught last year? He taught the same thing to the Nephites. So why do you think He would do that?
  • One part is the Beatitudes. These teachings help us understand how we can be a true disciple.
  • What does it mean to let your light shine? (Tell your children about the light you see in them when they follow Jesus Christ and how it inspires you to follow Him too.)
  • Take turns hiding or covering a lamp or other light. Uncover the light each time you name something you can do to be a good example to others.

Tuesday Devotional



3 Nephi 12:21–30


  • Today we will keep talking about what Christ taught the Nephites in their version of His Sermon on the Mount.
  • He also taught a lot about living the higher law. Which means that we don’t just have to DO good things, but we have to BE good in our hearts.
  • One example he gave was if someone made you walk a mile with them to help them, you should walk a second mile and keep helping. Another was that if someone hit you on one cheek, you should turn and offer them the other cheek, too.
  • Why would He teach us these things? Then how can we apply them in our lives?
  • Watch “Jesus Christ Teaches How to Live the Higher Law

The Wise Man and the Foolish Man (Children’s #281)

  • What makes the difference between the rock and the sand? Then why does one wash away?
  • We aren’t building houses, but we are building our testimonies. What are rocks we should build on? What are some examples of sand?
