Jacob likes to watch Daddy get ready for work. Daddy buttons his shirt and tucks it into his pants. Then Daddy puts socks and shoes on his feet. Jacob sees Daddy put a hat on his head. Daddy wears a coat and gloves because it’s cold outside. When Daddy comes home from work, Jacob puts Daddy’s shoes on his feet. They are too big. He puts Daddy’s hat on his head. It covers his eyes. He tries on Daddy’s coat. It drags on the floor. Daddy’s gloves are too big for Jacob’s hands. Daddy laughs. He puts on Jacob’s shoes. They are too small. The shoes cover only two toes on his feet. He puts on Jacob’s hat. It is too small. Jacob’s coat fits of one of Daddy’s arms. Jacob’s gloves only cover Daddy’s fingers on his hands. Jacob sees Daddy and laughs. Jacob likes playing dress up. He and Daddy have fun changing places!

Remember Jesus Christ during the Sacrament

There are many ways we can reverently remember Jesus Christ, especially while the sacrament is being passed. We can remember how He suffered for our sins and how He died and was resurrected. We can remember His life and teachings. We can think about how we can become more like Him. We can remember the things we have done wrong and ask for forgiveness. And we can remember the many blessings He has given us. Jesus said, “If ye do always remember me ye shall have my Spirit to be with you” (3 Nephi 18:11). The sacrament is a great blessing in our lives.

Instructions

Mount the two circles on heavy paper, and cut them out. Put the circle with the cutout wedge on top of the other circle. Fasten the two circles in the center with a brass fastener. Turn the top circle so you can see each picture. Think about what it represents. You can also use the picture circles in a Primary talk or family home evening lesson.

Jesus died for me. Jesus suffered for my sins. Jesus was resurrected so I can live again. Jesus wants me to keep His commandments. Jesus and Heavenly Father will forgive me when I repent.
