Faith is

Hebrews 11

"Faith Requires Trusting in God's Promises."

In part of this week's lesson it talks about FAITH, so we thought it would be appropriate to talk about the Primary song, Faith, and share our song visual

Faith is knowing the sun will rise, lighting each new day.
Faith is knowing the Lord will hear my prayers each time I pray.
Faith is like a little seed:
If planted, it will grow.
Faith is a swelling within my heart.
When I do right, I know.

Here is a few pictures of the fun song visual we have for our Primary.  The kids LOVE watching the object slide up as we sing the song.  I hope this is something they visually remember as THEY GROW and remember the message of what it means and how it makes them feel.

Here are some pictures of the back in case anyone would like to see :)

It was put together with fishing string, eyelets and clamps on the back.

For my family's CFM-FHE lesson, we read Alma 32:21, then sang this song.  We discussed what Faith is and why it's like a seed.

Then I put some objects from around the house into a paper sack (a banana, Hot Wheels car, basebase, spoon, toothpaste, etc.)  I asked my boys to stick their hand in the bag a FEEL what was in the bag without looking and tell me what one object was.  They guessed it right and I asked how did they know what it was -without seeing it?  

By feeling!  (duh, mom!)

This is how faith can work, we FEEL something is true and right through the influence of the Holy Ghost.

To end, I asked them to show me their muscles.  

They were quick to show them ha!  

I asked, "How do you work/grow your muscles? Show me".  My oldest started doing push ups,  my middle did squats and my youngest jumped up and down.

What would happen to our muscles if we sat around in bed all day? (get weak)

Just like our muscles need to be worked to grow stronger, we need to work our FAITH EVERYDAY.

How can we strengthen our FAITH? (Going to church, read scriptures, service, prayer, kindness, obeying the commandments, etc.)

At the end, we did some fun exercises together such as star jumps, leap frogs, run in place, and sit ups.
