Presidency Message Sept. Love is the KEY

The Sharing Time Theme for Sept. is "The Ten Commandments Teach me to Love God and His Children."  The BEST way to teach anyone about love is to model it as YOU love THEM.  The Sharing Time Outline reminds us of this when it says, "Look for opportunities to show love to each child.  As you show love for those you teach, they become more receptive to the Spirit and more enthusiastic about learning (TNGC, 31)."  Your example to the children is the best teaching tool you have.  It is the way the Savior taught us.  It is the way our prophet, Thomas S. Monson, has taught us by example and word when he said, "Never let a problem to be solved become more important than a person to be loved."  Remember, at a time when a child may seem difficult, is probably the time they need your love most of all.  Jeffrey R. Holland gives us hope when he said, "If those (students) are unresponsive, maybe you can't teach them yet, but you can love them.  And if you love them today, maybe you can teach them tomorrow."  LOVE is the key.  As we love them, they will feel the love of our Father and our Savior, and want to keep his commandments.  Thank you for all the love you show the children of our stake!
