June Song: Song of your choice from the Children's Songbook

June is a "your choice" song!  To pick my June song, I looked at June's theme for the month and started from there (it helps our program jive a little better!).  June's theme is "The First Principles and Ordinances of the Gospel Make It Possible for Me to Live with God Again."  Here are my suggestions (which I chose from "Ordinances" in the Topics section in the back of The Children's Songbook!):

A Young Man Prepared p. 166
Baptism p. 100 (find my lesson plan HERE)
Families Can Be Together Forever p. 88 (find my lesson plan HERE)
I Know My Father Lives p. 5
I Like My Birthdays p. 104
I'm Trying to Be like Jesus p. 78 (find my lesson plan HERE)
Listen, Listen p. 107
Love is Spoken Here p. 190
Search, Ponder, and Pray p. 109 (find my lesson plan HERE) - this is what I chose!
The First, Fourth or Fifth Articles of Faith p. 122, 124, 125 (find my Article of Faith prompts HERE)
The Holy Ghost p. 105 (find my lesson plan HERE)
The Priesthood Is Restored p. 89
The Still Small Voice p. 106
Truth from Elijah p. 89
When I Am Baptized p. 103 (find my lesson plan HERE)

For ideas for teaching the songs where I don't have a lesson plan linked, I'd reference the following:

A Children's Songbook Companion.  Find details of this book HERE.
Sugardoodle HERE and search for the song alphabetically.
Search past files on Primusic on Yahoo Groups (find details HERE)
Google, Pinterest, Facebook (Chorister's Group HERE), or other singing time blogs of course - I have several linked to the right and scroll down!

What are you teaching this month?  Leave a comment to help someone else decide!

We are teaching Nephi's Courage. It's not really in line with the theme but we thought it works for the overall theme this year. I Know The Scriptures are True.

We're doing Scripture Power for the same reason as above - fits the yearly theme. Now to figure out how to teach it!

We're singing Help Me Dear Father because it is about repentance and forgiveness and fits perfectly into this month's theme about the first principles and ordinances of the gospel.

We are doing Choose the Right Way, because the 2nd verse fits right in, in my opinion.

I know I'm not alone in saying THANK YOU times a million. You've made this calling so much easier. Thanks for your talents, and your willingness to share them so freely. If you're ever in Phoenix I'll take you to dinner! :)
