I Will Say Thanks

FHE Lesson exchange, author unknown

1. Copy "Thank Ewe" notes, one for each family member.

Opening Song:
My Heavenly father Loves Me

D&C 78:19
"And he who receiveth all things with thankfulness shall be made glorious; and the things of this earth shall be added unto him, even an hundred fold, yea, more."

Share the story of the 10 Lepers in Luke 17:11-19. Ask these questions when finished:

* Why did this man come back to Jesus?
* What did the other men do?
* What should we thank Heavenly Father and Jesus for?
* Whom else should we thank?
* How do you feel when you say "thank you" to someone?
* How do you feel when someone says "thank you" to you?

Just before ending the lesson thank each child for something well they have done during FHE.

Help your children learn to express their appreciation for others using the "thank you" cards. Color the card and have your child give it to someone who made a difference in their lives.

finger food that your children are thank-ful for; raisins, crackers, marshmallow, etc. before they eat, they must say "thank you".
