Primary 'The Voice".
My new favorite show is 'The Voice' (not that I ever have time to watch it :)) but I like to see parts of it when I can. The gist of the show is: 4 people are turned around in a chair facing away from a stage. A singer comes on the stage and starts to sing. If one of the 4 likes their singing, they turn their chair around.
So to make 'The Voice' primary style, we made some adjustments...
Pick one child to sit in a swivel chair facing away from the piano and the other primary children.
Here's a list of songs and the corresponding prophet:
~Song: I Hope they Call Me on a Mission. David O. McKay - focused on missionary work, "every member a missionary".
~Song: This is my Beloved Son. Joseph Fielding Smith - invited all to come unto Christ.
~Song: A Happy Family. Harold B. Lee - encouraged us to take time for family home evening.
~Song: The Priesthood is Restored or Do As I'm Doing. Spencer W. Kimball - on his desk was a plaque with the motto "Do It", and received revelation to extend the priesthood to all worthy male members.
~Song: Book of Mormon Stories. Ezra Taft Benson - renewed emphasis on the Book of Mormon.
~Song: Families Can Be Together Forever. Howard W. Hunter - focused on being worthy to enter and attend the temple.
~Song: I Love to See the Temple. Gordon B. Hinckley - dedicated more temples than any other General Authority.
~Song: Jesus Said Love Everyone. Thomas S. Monson - As bishop at age 22, there were 85 widows in his ward and he visited them regularly. Later he spoke at each of their funerals after they passed away.
We would love to hear from you if this idea works for your Primary!!! Happy March! and check out our other posts from this week!
