The 12 Compliments of Christmas

Kind words are as sweet as a plate of cookies, and they last a lot longer! This Christmas pick a person and think of 12 things you like about him or her. Starting 12 days before Christmas (or 12 days before school break), leave that person a secret message saying one nice thing each day. You could slip an envelope into a locker or tape a note to a door.

I Love to See the Temple

Many temples display nativity scenes during the Christmas season. Some visitors’ centers even have crèche festivals where they show nativity scenes from all around the world.

Ask Yourself …

What can I do to be more like Jesus Christ?

Following Jesus

Be Confident

Jesus Christ said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6).

Some people who knew Jesus Christ did not believe He was the Son of God. But Jesus did not doubt what He knew was true. He said, “The works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me” (John 10:25; see also verses 24–39).

This Month’s Challenges:

Challenge 1: Write down five things you like about yourself.

Challenge 2: Help someone at school.

Challenge 3: Learn the words to the Primary song “I Know My Father Lives.”

I Know My Father Lives

I know my Father lives and loves me too.
The Spirit whispers this to me and tells me it is true,
And tells me it is true.
He sent me here to earth, by faith to live His plan.
The Spirit whispers this to me and tells me that I can,
And tells me that I can.
