  • Psalms 78:26 – He caused an east wind to blow in the heaven: and by his power he brought in the south wind. [Or the wind as it rushes by]

Verse 2

  • 3 Nephi 13:22 – The light of the body is the eye; if, therefore, thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.  [He gave me my eyes that I might see]
  • Genesis 1:25 – And God made … every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. [The color of butterfly wings]

[He gave me my life, my mind, my heart; I thank him rev’rently]

Cut the scriptures apart.

My Heavenly Father Loves Me Prep

In addition to the printables, you also need:
  • rope or thick string
  • clothespins

Before Primary tape pictures (and scripture references for Sr. Primary) underneath chairs.  Hang a clothesline or use the board to simplify.

TIP: Hang the clothesline against the board, front of the room or strung from the ceiling.

My Heavenly Father Loves Me Singing Time Idea

As an attention getter, have your primary close their eyes.  Tell them this visualization:

“Visualize you are in the country at a small farm. There is a soft breeze and the sun is warmly shining down, with a few clouds in the sky”

Optional: Turn a blow dryer on low and lightly blow over the Primary.

The long grass is soft as you lie down and listen to birds chirping
Optional: find birds chirping sound and play it on your phone.
You smell wild flowers and a light scent of clean laundry hanging out to dry
Optional: Spray some room freshener.
 
You feel happy, peaceful and calm.  Open your eyes.”

Ask the Following Questions and Take Answers:

  • Who gave us these wonderful things?  [Heavenly Father]
  • What can you think of that Heavenly Father gave you? [answers will vary!]
  • Why? [because he loves you]

Tell the Primary that you are learning a song that talks about how Heavenly Father shows his love for you.  Have everyone look under their chairs to reveal hidden pictures (and scripture references for Sr.)

Teach My Heavenly Father Loves Me for Older Children

For Senior Primary, you and the teachers sing the song until all the pictures are quickly put in order on the clothesline using the clothespins.  Post the words using a flip chart as needed.

Camille's Primary Ideas: posting words for singing time, singing time flip charts

Then, line by line, figure out what scripture references go with each picture.  Sing each line gradually adding on.  Option to tape the references to the picture(s) they correspond to.

Teach My Heavenly Father Loves Me for Younger Children

For Junior Primary, sing the song line by line and as parts are found in order. Gradually add on.  Hang the corresponding pictures in order on the clothesline (do not use scripture references).

If time permits, gradually take them all down as lines are learned.

Bear Testimony

Bear testimony of the many evidences of Heavenly Father’s love and just how much he loves each one of his children.

12 thoughts on “My Heavenly Father Loves Me”

  1. Did anyone else feel silly teaching the lyrics "Heavenly Father created for me" after the sharing time lesson stressed that "Jesus Christ create the earth" ? Confusing?

    1. I was just reading in the February Ensign on page 43 and it states, "Under the direction of God the Father, Jesus Christ created the earth so that we, the children of God, could gain a physical body and experience trials in order to become like our Father…" Anyway, I thought it clarified your thoughts which did bring up a good point.

  2. Thank you Camille. I am brand new to this calling and although I am super excited I am also extremely nervous about what to do. Someone recommended I follow your blog and I am so thankful for them. You are serving not only your sweet primary children but countless primary children all over the world!!! THANK YOU for helping us Primary Choristers out there too.
    Warmly,
    Misty

  3. Thank you for everything! I've recently been called as a Primary Chorister and your blog has been the most helpful resource thus far.

    Also, I wanted to let you know that there are some incorrect scripture references listed for this activity. The fifth scripture – listed as Psalms 105:15 – is actually Psalms 103:15. Additionally, the tenth scripture – listed as Doctrine & Covenants 126:38 – is actually Doctrine & Covenants 136:28.

    Thank you, again.

  4. Hi Bryan,

    I can hang it across most of the front of our primary room – ours isn't very wide. We have the accordian doors that divide our primary into 3rd so I can hang it from those. But hanging it along the chalkboard or corkboard would easily work.
