'And whisper religion in their ears' – Teaching Primary Children Deeper Gospel Understanding
I wrote most of this post a couple years ago when we were teaching the 9-year-old primary class in our ward in Saratoga Springs, UT. Now we live in the St. George area and after we both taught Sunbeams for a while my wife is in the Primary Presidency. I found this nearly-complete post and decided it's time to complete it. My wife and I teach the 9-year-olds in primary. I've received a new calling (several by the time I'm publishing this), but still attend class for now until they get her a new co-teacher. On Sat. night, just a few weeks ago, Jill told me the lesson the next day was on the parable of The Good Samaritan and asked if I had any ideas or insights about what to teach them. I pulled up one of my favorite Ensign articles of all time entitled "The Good Samaritan: Forgotten Symbols" from Feb. 2007 (I've linked to the PDF version because it's much better when you can see the stained-glass windows talked about). If you haven't read this article. Please take time to read it. It
