What is Truth?
Since we are living in an age where we have access to so much information, it can be particularly challenging to find truth. There are so many voices speaking so loudly! It is easy to end up confused and lost. Cutting through all the confusion is the TRUTH that can be found in the gospel of Jesus Christ. Through studying the words of the scriptures, the words of the living prophets and the through personal revelation, God will reveal truth to us. We then, can build the foundation of our lives on these truths. We hope this week's lesson will promote inspired and meaningful discussions within your family about this important topic.

Open the lesson with a song and a prayer.

You will need three plastic cups that are non-transparent, and you will need a ball or a small toy that fits inside the cups. Before you begin the lesson, turn the cups upside down and place the ball under one of the cups.
➤ I N T R O D U C T I O N
Direct the children’s attention to the cups. Tell them that there is a ball underneath one of the cups. Then ask if they know which cup has a ball under it. Allow them to guess and encourage discussion, but don’t reveal the truth yet!
Now pause the activity, and ask the following questions:
1) You have all guessed which cup is hiding the ball, but does anyone know the truth? (None of the children know the truth. They can only guess!)
2) What does it mean to know the truth? (It means you are not guessing. You know which cup really has the ball!)
3) Is there anyone in this room who knows the truth? (You know the truth because you hid the ball!)
4) How can you find out the truth? (They could ask you to tell them, or they could ask you to look under the cups to find out for themselves!)
