FHE Lesson {The Lords Law of Health}

Opening Song:  The Lord Gave me a Temple #153

Opening Prayer:


Object lesson:
Mouse trap. Place a piece of chocolate on a mouse trap and set it. Discuss the dangers of something so nice but potentially dangerous. Now place a picture of something other people may deem nice but not good for us (eg cigarette, alcohol, drugs)  – wouldn’t we immediately reject this? Of course.

What is the Word of Wisdom?
The Word of Wisdom is a law of health revealed by the Lord for the physical and spiritual benefit of His children.

Where can we find information about the word of wisdom?
Doctrine and Covenants 89

What does the Word of Wisdom say about what we should eat?
The Lord revealed which foods are good for us to eat and which substances are not good for the human body.

What are the promises of the word of wisdom?
Health, protection, knowledge, and wisdom to those who obey the Word of Wisdom.

What principle of the gospel is the word of wisdom teaching us?
Obedience and caring for our bodies.

Holding Fruit and candy
Have child hold an  arm out straight palm facing up.
Place a piece of chocolate on the hand. Is this food health or unhealthy?
Tell them to try keeping it up. Then the adult uses 2 fingers to push the arms down on their wrist. The arm will go down. The body rejects the bad. 

Do it again with fruit and the body will resist the pushing.
The arm will stay up. The body accepts the good food.

This activity worked so well for our family. I hope it does for everyone {because I'm not sure of the science behind it?} The kids were impressed that the arm with the chocolate or candy on it was weak and would go down but the arm holding the apple resisted and stayed strong!

Closing Song:

Closing Prayer: Child

Treat: Fruit

“One keeps the Word of Wisdom knowing that obedience will not only bring freedom from addiction, but it will also add blessings of wisdom and treasures of knowledge.”

—Russell M. Nelson
