Primary 6 Lesson 28: David and Goliath


Primary 6 Lesson 28: David and Goliath- The purpose of this lesson is to encourage us to seek Heavenly Father's help in overcoming obstacles in our lives.

There are a lot of great videos that can go with this lesson of overcoming obstacles. I love sharing stories like this with my children. Its so good for them to see how it isn't impossible. Somebody else faced something harder and overcame it because he trusted in the Lord. I really liked the Mountains to Climb videos because it also shows how everyone has some sort of problem in their life that they are trying their best to handle.
