Jesus Christ Our Savior

Author: Annalisa Hall

Family Activity: (Prepare the word stripes and hid them in the room for the family to find and search the life of Jesus Christ, or paste them around the home in order to follow, optional put a picture from the Gospel Art Kit for each one to teach the children about the Life of Jesus Christ.) Adapted from "Walking Where Jesus Walked," Friend, Feb. 2003, 24

Explain: While Jesus Christ was on the earth, He did many important things. He taught His gospel and showed us how we can return to live with Him and Heavenly Father again. The most important things Jesus did for us were the Atonement and the Resurrection. As you play the game, you will see many of the things that happened in His life.
