4-5 minutes of General Conference for primary aged kids?

Post by mackay11 » 18 May 2014, 22:35

A member of the primary presidency asked me to help them in sharing time next Sunday.

They want me to find a 4-5 minute clip from the recent general conference to show the primary children. It's a small branch so ages go from 4-11.

I said yes, but now I'm left trying to think of something. Was there a talk with a good story or one with some on-screen dramatisation? They sometimes have actors re-create a scene or story. It can be anything from either the general conference sessions or the women's conference.

Any thoughts? I'm drawing a blank.

Use the clip when president monson talks about setting the fire when he was a kid. I don't remember the point of the story, but it was very engaging, and really made the prophet seem relateable (is that a word?):)

There's a (possibly?) kid-friendly talk from the October, 2013, priesthood session - Pres. Uchtdorf's "You Can Do It Now." He starts with an anecdote about skiing with his grandson.

There are several videos (one of "I Am a Child of God" sung in a bunch of languages) from the most recent General R.S. meeting that the younger girls were invited to. That one includes a fair number of Primary-age boys, but it's really geared more toward girls.

Almost anything from Pres. Monson. The fire story is excellent.

Even if people view many things differently, the core Gospel principles (LOVE; belief in the unseen but hoped; self-reflective change; symbolic cleansing; striving to recognize the will of the divine; never giving up) are universal.

Any idea which conference the fire story was from? I think they wanted one from the latest conference. I like the multi-lingual I am a Child of God idea. Is there a talk that fits that? Wondering if I could do a combination of both.
