Relate the values taught in the primary song, I Will Be Valiant by comparing them to road signs!  Tying the intangible to the tangible always helps children grasp more difficult concepts. PLUS lots of other I Will Be Valiant singing time ideas are linked below!

Driving Directions

Several years ago, The Friend had an idea that compared being valiant to road signs.  With a few tweaks, I turned that comparison into a singing time lesson plan complete with steering wheels (aka: paper plates).  Check out more details to that post HERE.

I Will Be Valiant History

This information comes from Stories from The Children’s Songbook by Sister Pat Graham (more information on that book HERE).

In 1981, new class manuals were prepared for the Sunday consolidated schedule. Vanja Yorgason Watkins was asked to write the Valiant class song, and said she would begin as soon as the committee sent her the words. They said they needed her to write the words, and the message should include keeping baptismal covenants.

There was not a lot of time, and Sister Watkins prayed and fasted and agonized over the words. A few couplets came, but she needed a good beginning. She walked into her bedroom and noticed a paper on her dresser with a quotation from Joseph Fielding Smith. She read, “Our young people are among the most blessed and favored of our Father’s children. Their spirits have been reserved to come forth in this day when the gospel is on earth, and when the Lord needs valiant servants to carry on his great Latter-day work.

She wept as she recognized the answer to her prayer. These words were the first line she needed, and they had been given to her in this quotation. She felt it was a little miracle, because no one in the family knew how the precious paper got on her dresser.
