Nephi’s Courage 3rd Verse


The 3rd verse to Nephi’s Courage likens us to the prophet Nephi.  So help children understand that they can be just like Nephi when teaching the 3rd verse to Nephi’s Courage!

And there’s no better way to convey that message to have them LOOK like Nephi!  With a few simple items, your Primary can dress up like Nephi!

To dress up your Primary like Nephi I recommend creating this Nephi headband:

Print on card stock, laminate and cut out.  Punch 2 holes on the sides near the jaw line to tie elastic, ribbon or strip of paper to create a headband.

For large Primaries, create several headbands for multiple children to wear at the same time.

Susan Fitch also has a Nephi printable that is ADORABLE! Purchase her Nephi’s Courage Clip Art  in her Etsy shop.  Or she also has a  black and white version on her website for free.  

VARIATION: Have your Primary listen to Nephi’s Courage as they color and create their own to take home!

Nephi's Courage 3rd Verse Singing Time Idea

For younger children, choose good singers to come wear the headband.  Have them stand up front as the Primary sings the 3rd verse.

When the chorus is sung, the child up front leads in doing the actions on the chorus taught here.

For older children, write the 3rd verse on the board.  Sing the song.  As the Primary is singing, a child must put on the headband and erase a word.
Then pass the eraser and headband to another child.  They must quickly put on the headband and erase another word.  Race to erase all the words by the of the song by the end of the song.
Time permitting, write the words on the board again to create another race.  
Another idea is to have children put on the Nephi crown.  As the Primary sings, that child can write on the board how they can be like Nephi.  Ideas include courage, faith, obedience, hunt for your own food ;), etc.

Bear Testimony

I love what what this sister shared on Primusic Yahoo Groups if you want to close with it:
“A true super hero is valiant, you can count on them.  Did you know that the Lord is counting on you to prepare the world to receive the gospel and He is counting on you to prepare the world for Jesus to come again.  Did you know that the prophet is counting on you? 
President Monson said  “Have you ever stopped to consider that the Prophet of God is counting on each one of us?  Yes, he is counting on our conduct.  He is confident of our courage.  How I pray that each may declare, “I RESOLVE TO MERIT THE PROPHET’S TRUST.”  “I shall not deviate from my duty.”  I shall not dishonor my divine destiny”.  (Crisis at the Crossroads, New Era, Nov. 2002).
I bear my testimony that you are special.  Heavenly Father has sent you here at this time in History, to your family, to our ward because he knows you are capable of great things.  He needs you!  I hope you will decide that you will be the Lord’s Super Hero.  Be valiant, have faith, be obedient.  If you do these things the Lord will bless you with power to accomplish all that He commands.  He will provide the way!”

  1. I just came across your blog! I just have to say that I am SOOOO THANKFUL for people like you!!! THANK YOU for sharing your creative ideas and hardwork! I am fairly new to my calling in primary, and I have NO musical background, little creativity and feel completely un-qualitified for the position. People like you make it so I don't completely flop every week. People like you are the reason my primary children still have a meaningul music time. Thanks for taking the time to do this. You have saved me with Nephi's Courage!

  2. Ditto to what Krystal said…just found your blog this morning and am TOTALLY inspired!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!! I am also new to my calling and even though I have a musical background and teaching experience, fresh ideas are always needed!

  3. Hi Camille! I add my thanks to you for this great blog! I'm actually not the primary chorister, but I'm a newly called sunbeam teacher and I live in France in a very small ward. There is LOTS of room to help and I'm helping the chorister. I have almost 2 years experience in the calling myself, but it's been many years and many 'head spaces' since! …this is helping me really get it all back, I have none of my old things, and I'm helping her in French, so I'll be translating a lot of what you post. Thank you thank you!!!!

  4. Camille, you have inspired me so many times since January when I received this calling. I am so grateful for you! Isn't this the best calling in the church! I can't think of any other I like better and at this point in my life (62 years) I've done them all!

  5. Thank you, Camille. I am grateful for you! Can you please give me a hint on how you attached the elastic to the headbands?

  6. Hi Camille, I have followed you for so many years, and always find your ideas to be amazing and very much in line with my own thinking and style! Thank you so much for all that you put into sharing with us!! I did try to click onto the actions for the 3rd verse of Nephi’s courage, but it takes me to a page that says my access is denied. I know you have changed how things are accessed recently… any tips? I did link to this current page from my email that I get from you. Thanks so much, Leslie

  7. I just got called back to primary (chorister) after several years in different callings. I’m now coming here every week for ideas and printables. Thanks so much for putting in the work and inspiration. I take your ideas and tweak them to fit my primary and add some of my own twists. It makes for a great lesson plan and I’m so thankful for you! Love from Michigan!
