Sister Jones Shares 3 Things You Can Teach Your Kids About the Name of the Church


“I feel that President Nelson is calling us all to recognize our spiritual identity before our Savior, to stand up and be the best we can be as individuals and as a people in preparing for His return to the earth. What a meaningful, preparatory time this is," Sister Joy D. Jones said.

How can parents and teachers talk to children about using the proper name of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

Children will lead the way, said Sister Joy D. Jones, Primary general president.

Children identify first and foremost as a child of God. “When they say ‘I am a Child of God,’ they believe it,” she said. . . . In recent weeks, various Church leaders and departments have initiated steps to make this happen, according to the statement.

Parents and teachers can also use this important statement to teach children, said Sister Jones. “What an important time to focus on the Savior,” she said.
