A Gift from Heavenly Father


A Gift from Heavenly Father

Isabelle was happy that it was spring. She liked to listen to the birds. She liked to play in the green grass.

Isabelle was happy it was time for Easter. She knew Easter was a special day. On Easter we celebrate when Jesus came back to life.

In Primary, Sister Martin gave crayons to all the children in class. She asked them to draw the greatest gift Heavenly Father gave them.

Michael drew a picture of his family.

Eliza drew a picture of her friend.

Anthony drew a picture of his house.

Isabelle looked at the drawings. They were very good.

Isabelle thought about what she should draw. She was happy to have a family. She was happy to have friends. She was happy to have a house.

Then Isabelle thought about another gift that Heavenly Father gave all people. He gave everyone the gift of a Savior. Isabelle picked up her crayons. She drew a picture of Jesus Christ.

Sister Martin asked Isabelle what she drew.

“I drew a picture of Jesus,” Isabelle said. “He is the greatest gift.”

Jesus Christ Lives

After Jesus Christ was crucified, He was resurrected. This means that His body came back to life and that He will live forever. Because of His Resurrection, we will live forever too.

Look at the pictures that show some of the events from Jesus’s life. Write a 1, 2, 3, or 4 in the boxes to show the order in which the events happened.
