Living Prophets Teach Me to Choose the Right


You can use this lesson and activity to learn more about this month’s Primary theme.

Living Prophets Teach Me to Choose the Right

Cristina watched President Thomas S. Monson on the screen in her stake center during general conference. He was talking about being kind to others. Cristina had a warm feeling as she listened. She knew President Monson was a prophet of God. She thought about Leah, a girl at school who was unkind to her. She decided she would be nice to Leah and try to be her friend. Cristina wanted to follow the prophet’s teachings.

Before Jesus Christ was crucified, He called the Apostle Peter to lead His Church. Peter received revelation for the Church and led the people of Christ in the right paths. Today, President Thomas S. Monson leads the Church, just as Peter did.

Listen carefully when the prophet speaks. His teachings can help you with problems and challenges you may have. He will always lead you down the right paths, and you will be blessed when you follow him.

CTR Game: Getting to Know Our Church Leaders

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is led by 15 living prophets. The President of the Church, his two counselors in the First Presidency, and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles are all prophets. Can you match the pictures of the First Presidency and Twelve Apostles to their names? Cut out the podium on page 65 and the pictures below and mount them on heavy paper. Cut slits in the chairs where shown and put the General Authorities in their correct chairs.

When you watch general conference and one of these men gives a talk, you can move his picture from his chair to the podium.
