Primary Program 2012

Primary president: Good Morning and welcome to our primary program. This year our theme isChoose the Right.In January, each child received a CTR ring to help them remember to make good choices. In Joshua 24:15 it states, “Choose you this day whom you will serve;… but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

Today the primary children will share their testimonies, through music and scripture, of how choosing the right can bless us and our families.

Speaker: Agency is the Gift to Choose for Ourselves

Speaker: Living Prophets Teach Me to Choose the Right

Scripture:In Alma chapter 37, verse 35 it says: O, remember, my son, and learn wisdom in thy youth, yea, learn in thy youth to keep the commandments of God.

Speaker: The First Presidency and the Twelve Apostles are prophets.

Speaker: Every six months we hear messages from the prophets and apostles in General Conference. These messages help me learn how to choose the right.

Speaker: Each month we can read messages from our leaders in the church magazines. The Ensign, The New Era, and The Children’s Friend.

Speaker: I love reading The Children’s Friend because it has stories, pictures, and examples of choosing the right.

Speaker: I can choose the right at home, at work, at school and at play.

Speaker: I am blessed when I choose to follow the prophet.

Speaker: I Choose the Right When I am Baptized and Confirmed a Member of the Church

Scripture: In the book of Acts, chapter 2, verse 38, we read: Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Speaker: When we sin it is like carrying big rocks in our backpacks. When we repent and are forgiven the rocks are taken away.

Speaker: The Holy Ghost is a special gift we receive after we are baptized.

Speaker: Even though we can’t see the Holy Ghost we know he is there to guide us, comfort us, and protect us.

Speaker: Each Sunday as I take the sacrament I can become clean again as I renew the covenants I made at baptism.


Song: "When I Am Baptized" (CS, 103)



Speaker:I Choose the Right by Living Gospel Principles

Scripture: In Nephi, chapter 3, verse 7, we read: I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them.

Speaker: The Lord gives us commandments and asks us to obey.

Speaker: Sometimes I am tempted to choose another way.

Speaker: When I am discouraged and think I cannot try,

Speaker: I will be courageous and I will reply;

Speaker: I will go I will do the things the thing the Lord commands. I know the Lord provides a way he wants me to obey.


Song: "Nephi’s Courage" (CS, 120-21)



Speaker:I Choose the Right by Living Gospel Principles

Scripture: In Nephi, chapter 3, verse 16, we read: Wherefore, let us be faithful in keeping the commandments of the Lord.

Speaker: Gospel principles are the teachings and commandments that Jesus taught.

Speaker: Some of these principles are: prayer, fasting, paying tithing, obeying the word of wisdom, dressing modestly, being kind, being reverent, and telling the truth.

Speaker: When I am choosing the right I am choosing to live these principles.

Song: Choose the Right Way (CS 160)

Speaker: In Heleman 5:12 we read, “And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall.”

Talk: (About wise man, foolish man)

Song: "The Wise Man and the Foolish Man" (CS, 281)



Speaker: I Choose to Fill My Life with Things That Invite the Spirit.

Scripture:The end of the 13th Article of Faith reads: “If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.”

Speaker: Having good friends will help me choose the right.

Speaker: I can choose the right by reading, listening to, and looking at things that are pleasing to Heavenly Father.

Speaker: I can choose the right by doing things on the Sabbath day that will help me stay close to Heavenly Father.

Speaker: I know that as I try choose the right and try to be like Jesus I will be happy. My good choices bless me and my family.
