I Want to Live the Gospel

Our pick for the month of July is 'I Want to Live the Gospel'. I LOVE this song. It goes so well with the monthly theme of  'I Choose the Right by Living Gospel Principle.'
(We haven't decided yet if we will sing 'The Wise Man and the Foolish Man' in the program. Everyone knows it and I thought it had a great message so we did it last week. You can see my lesson plan and ideas I collected HERE.)

 Anyhow, here is my lesson plan for teaching this great song.

An interesting fact I learned about this song. Sister Naomi Randall wrote the words. If she sounds familiar it's because she also wrote 'I Am a Child of God'. A quote from her about this song:

"It is my hope that the children will make a personal commitment to live the principles of the gospel more today than they did yesterday and that they may experience the joy and happiness that comes from living the gospel."

LOVE that. It's something I'll have to tell my kiddos!
Happy Singing!

  1. I picked this one, too!!!!!! I didn't really know it, so I picked it so I could get more familiar with it. We played "four corners" to learn it, which didn't go so well, but they were singing. Kind of
