February/March Presidency Message

February's Sharing Times emphasize that Heavenly Father created a plan whereby each of us through our obedience and choices could return to Him after this Earth life.  Teaching Heavenly Father's small children this plan is the job of parents AND supported by the Primary workers of each ward.  Additionally, we are helped by other members of our wards through our ward councils.  The Church Handbook teaches us that councils should be used to "unify their efforts in responding to individual, family, and organizational needs." 

3 Nephi 22:13 says, "All thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of thy children." 

Additionally, the Church Handbook teaches that "As part of our Heavenly Father's plan, we were born into families.  He established families to bring us happiness, to help us learn correct principles ni a loving atmosphere, and to prepare us for eternal life."  We can help parents in our wards fulfill their divine calling as we support their efforts and help teach their children of Heavenly Father's and Jesus Christ's love and plan for them.

February is always a month which focuses on love through valentine's day.  As you focus on LOVE, pray for understanding of how you can love and support the parents of your ward by teaching their children about Heavenly Father's plan for them.  It is a plan of true LOVE to bring us the fullness of God's blessings for eternity.

March bring the start of Spring and new life.  It is filled with wonderful opportunities to boost our own spiritually testimonies and bring that back to Primary.  There is a Stake Primary Activity, Stake Conference, Stake Baptism, Pinewood Derbies, and General Women's Conference.  Be sure to fill your buckets with loving strength to take back to your wards and classes.

Thank you for all your efforts and sacrifices you provide as you serve the Lord and His children in Primary.   May God bless your homes and your lives for this service.
