Learn the names, order and a tidbit of information about all the current prophets and apostles with this Living Prophets and Apostles song.  Your Primary will love learning all about our current prophet and apostles in singing time!

Camille's Primary Ideas: Living Prophets Song

Living Prophets Song is set to the tune of The Books in the Book of Mormon.  Download music with words using my access button at the  bottom of this post. A HUGE thank you to Judith who posted this on the Primary Music Leaders FB Group HERE.

Living Prophets and Apostles Primary Singing Time Idea

Hang all the pictures of the 1st presidency and 12 apostles on the board with magnets, but out of order.  You can purchase each 8×10 picture from the Distribution Center or order online.  Or simply download and print them HERE.

Having these pictures just to use for my own little family during General Conference has been fun – we set the pictures on the fireplace mantel and point each one out when they speak, or draw them a matching tie and taping it on, making purchasing them TOTALLY worth it!

Susan Fitch also has a great kit HERE as well.

The church’s website also has coloring pages for each man you can download and print HERE.

The activity is simple … gradually put the pictures in order as you learn the song.

As each picture is put in order, read a LITTLE information on each of the apostles found HERE and also HERE on churchofjesuschrist.org.
