Teaching Children

Teaching children is a process that can often strengthen the understanding of the teacher as much as it does the learner. These materials are created with the intent of simply and powerfully teaching concepts about our Heavenly Mother. By approaching these topics at an early age, parents and teachers can help children gain a foundational understanding of our Mother in Heaven that will strengthen and inspire them throughout their lives.
