30 Weeks to bringing our children unto Christ using the nursery manual found on lds.org.
Each morning, we begin our day with breakfast at the dining room table.
Before we start our hectic day, we take some time to be still...
We pray together and we learn of Him.
In just a few moments a day, we plan to complete one lesson each week.
Lesson four is:
Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ Love Me
How we learned this lesson:
1. Sing about it: I Feel my Saviors Love; music [here].
2. Read about it: John 15:10-12, Matthew 18: 5, 10, Mark 10:13–16, 3 Nephi 17:11–24. Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love all of us, and maybe especially the children! The bible testifies of this, as does the Book of Mormon. Reading the scriptures with our kiddos is a great way to show them, and not only tell them, how important we believe the books to be.
3. Talk about it: Share a story about Jesus's love! The nursery manual offers this summary of the story found in the 3rd Nephi scripture listed above:
"Jesus was teaching the people ( He asked them to bring their little children to Him They sat on the ground around Him, and Jesus knelt and prayed Then He blessed each child, one by one. Jesus did this because He loves little childrenlds.org)."
4. Personalize it: When we brushed our teeth, I'd point out my kids reflections in the mirror: "Look at you! Is that you?" And, to my toddler, "Repeat after me. Heavenly... Father... and Jesus... love me!"

It is hard to imagine someone, anyone, even deity, loving these kids more than I do!
