FHE Lesson {Challenges}

This lesson inspired by Challenges Help us Grow March 2014 Friend Magazine pg 2-3

Opening Song: Teach Me to Walk in the Light #177

Opening Prayer: Child


Play guess who I am from the scriptures:

If you ever feel sad or left out, you are not alone! Solve these riddles to learn how some scripture heroes handled hard times.

My brothers took my coloured coat
And sold me as a slave.
With faith I solved the Pharaoh’s dreams;
From famine all were saved.
Who am I? ________________________________
When men were few and spirits weak,
I raised the banner high.
My troops then won their battles
Once they knew the reason why.
Who am I? ________________________________
High on a wall I prophesied
The Saviour soon would come.
The angry mob shot arrows, but
No harm to me was done.
Who am I? ________________________________
Tremendous floods destroyed the earth,
For no one had prepared.
But we and all the animals
Inside the ark were spared.
Who am I? ________________________________
Although at risk to lose my life,
My people mattered more.
With bravery I asked the king
To save those I cared for.
Who am I? ________________________________
Obeying God gave me great power
Time and time again—
Before the king, at home, and even
In the lion’s den.
Who am I? ________________________________
Answers: Joseph, Captain Moroni, Samuel the Lamanite, Noah, Esther, Daniel
Sometimes things in life can be tough.
It can be comforting to know that even prophets from the scriptures and Jesus had challenges.
Have you ever had a bad day/time in life?
What can we do when times are hard?
show this picture or make up your own list of things we can do when we are having a bad day
{eg Tell someone about it, Talk with an adult, write in journal, sing a primary song, say a prayer, do something that makes you happy, go for a walk, read scriptures etc}
Sometimes we will be able to fix the problems that pop up in life, other times we won't be able.
These might be some ways to help us cope.
How can difficult circumstances sometimes work for our benefit?
{it can make us stronger, braver, draw closer to our family, help us to rely on the Lord, show us what we are capable of}
Testify that even though we all will pass through difficult times, comfort and healing can be found within our families, through the Holy Ghost, and the Atonement of Christ.
Closing Prayer: Child
