For your family

*In honor of Labor Day (September 1), ask a parent to help you learn more about the holiday. Discuss ways you can celebrate the holiday with your family.

*One night this week, change the way dinner is prepared, served, and cleaned up afterward. Have family members work in different roles than they normally do.

*Prepare for Grandparents’ Day (September 7) by making your grandparents a card, baking them their favorite treat, or celebrating the memory of them.

*Pray for a family member who is adapting to a change.

Using September 2014 in Groups

Though Pockets is primarily a resource for children’s personal use, the magazine can be used in groups as supplemental Sunday-school material or with weeknight groups or Pockets clubs. Here are suggestions for using the September issue, on the theme of the blessings of change, in weekly segments.

 

Week One:

Read: The Dog I Didn’t Want (pages 2-4)

Discuss: What’s a hard change that you’ve had to go through? What helped you get through it?

Pray: For kids dealing with chronic medical conditions

Do: Look up and discuss scriptures that can help us when we’re going through hard changes.
