April is a “your choice” song! To pick my April song, I looked at April’s theme for the month and started from there (it helps our program jive a little better!). April’s theme is “Jesus Christ Is My Savior and Redeemer.” Here are my suggestions (which I picked from section 2, The Savior, in the Children’s Songbook!):
- He Sent His Son . 34 (find my lesson plan HERE)
- I Think When I Read That Sweet Story p. 56
- Tell Me the Stories of Jesus p. 57 (find my lesson plan HERE)
- Beautiful Savior p. 62 (find my lesson plan HERE – this is what I chose, more to come!)
- I Feel My Savior’s Love p. 74
- This Is My Beloved Son p. 76 (find my lesson plan HERE)
- I’m Trying to Be like Jesus p. 78 (find my lesson plan HERE)
- Had I Been a Child p. 80 (find my lesson plan HERE)
- When He Comes Again p. 82
For ideas for teaching the songs where I don’t have a lesson plan linked, I’d reference the following:
- A Children’s Songbook Companion. Find details of this book HERE.
- Sugardoodle HERE and search for the song alphabetically.
- Search past files on Primusic on Yahoo Groups (find details HERE)
- Google, Pinterest, Facebook (Chorister’s Group HERE), or other singing time blogs of course – I have several linked to the right and scroll down!

Gethsemane. It is a beautiful song.
Jesus is My Shepherd from the lds.org sing-along videos.
I could not decide between I Feel My Saviours Love and My Heavenly Father Loves Me. I prayed about it and I received the impression that one of these songs would be sung in Conference and that was the one I was to teach. The impression was so strong I did not doubt it. Sure enough. The first song after the opening prayer in the first Session was I feel My Saviours Love!!!
My primary presidency said we are doing Scripture Power, since it goes with the over all theme. I really wanted to do Beautiful Savior or I feel my Savior's Love. Oh well will do as I am told and make it fun for the kids!
