Resources for Teaching Children about Christ- media

There are many resources available on LDS.org to help parents, teachers, grandparents and anyone else who loves children and wants to teach them about Jesus Christ. I wish these resources had been available when our children were young.

Go to the blue main menu on LDS.org (across the top of the page)
Click on Families and Individuals
Click on Children

On this page you will find links to:
Scripture Stories  https://www.lds.org/children/scripture-stories?lang=eng

Here you will find videos of scripture stories. The language is simple and easy to understand It was written for an 8 year old's reading level.

Where Can I Find the Religious Freedom Site?

The Religious Freedom site on LDS.org is designed to help us better understand religious freedom and defend it.

To find this site click on the Scriptures and Study main menu on the LDS.org homepage. Under the Learn More sub-menu click on Religious Freedom.

There are articles and videos to help us understand why Religious Freedom is so important and to teach us how to respond when our beliefs are questioned.

Keeping Up on Changes to LDS.org and Mormon.org

One of the best places I know is

Though this is not an official Church site, it is written by Larry Richman who is currently the Director of Church Programs of the Priesthood and Family Department of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Until recently, he was the Director of Product Awareness and Evaluation with the responsibility of helping members and leaders use Church materials more effectively. I have always found his articles most helpful.

Another helpful place is:

To find it click on the Inspiration and News main menus then
What's New on LDS.org

I also sign up for the Church News and Updates email.
Go to your LDS Account Settings
Click on Email Subscriptions (on the right of the page)
Click on the small gray box beside Church News and Updates (a check will appear in the box)
You will receive emails about changes and new products on LDS.org.
