Stand in Holy Places

What does it mean to stand in holy places? Sharon G. Larson from the General Young Women's presidency stated, "Standing in holy places is all about being in good company, whether you are alone or with others. It’s being where the Holy Ghost is our companion—alone or in a crowd." This week's lesson will prompt a discussion about how each of us can stand in holy places, wherever that might be.

Open the lesson with a song and a prayer.

🎶 O P E N I N G S O N G : "I Love to See the Temple"

You will need 5-10 towels, some sheets of blank paper, and a large marker to write on the paper with.

➤ I N T R O D U C T I O N

Place the towels on the floor to create a pathway of “stepping stones” leading across the room. Leave some space between them so that the children will need to reach slightly to step from one towel to the next.

Invite the children to play the “hot lava” game! The goal is to get from one side of the room to the other without touching the hot lava (the floor)! The towels serve as safe spaces where it is safe to stand!

Once you have completed the activity, discuss the following questions:

1) Did you make it to the other side? (Yes!)

2) How did you do it? (By standing on the safe spaces.)

3) What would happen if there were no safe spaces? (They couldn’t make it across the room and they would have to go in the lava!)

4) Do you think your Heavenly Father wants you to make it safely back to Him? (Yes!)
