Find my most current year’s CD HERE.
Each year I make a CD for each of the primary FAMILIES in our ward. Our primary gives the CD’s out as part of their Christmas presents each year. Since the CD’s take a little time, I always start early. If you want details on how I burn mine, find information HERE.
How I decide on songs is I just go through the current outline. I highlight any songs that are mentioned and just plug them in. I personally like 3 songs for each month. Some months had more listed (January, for example, had 4) and some months had nothing (like October). If months had nothing, I referenced that month’s outline topic to the Topic’s section in the back of the Children’s Songbook to come up with my song choices.
This Sunday I’m going to give this list to the Primary counselor who is over music so she can okay everything before I start burning a million CD’s. I’ll also give a copy to the pianist because all the songs that are not program songs will be sung as opening songs in Primary.
So here is my 2013 song list (the bolded songs will be sung in our sacrament meeting program):

Did you get the Outline from the President? I was just called and I'm not sure at all what I need to do to get ready for the new year. My presidency is brand new too. We're all just trying to figure out our new callings. Your website has so many wonderful teaching ideas. Thank you so much for all your hard work. It makes this calling seem less stressful and scary 🙂
I picked mine up at the Distribution Center when I was there randomly. But you can find it online here:
Hope that helps!
Hi, I love your blog. How do you go about burning so many cd's? Do you make a playlist on itunes and just keep hitting burn, or do you have some trick? I need to burn 50 cds for our families next week and don't quite know how to go about doing it. Thank you for any advice 🙂
Yes, I just create a playlist on iTunes and burn a million copies. To be efficient, I'll even figure out how long it takes to burn one (usually several minutes) and set a timer so I know when to insert the next one.
Hope that helps! Maybe there is a better way??
