In Primary 7 Lesson 30: Jesus Christ in Gethsemane, your goal is to help everyone feel love for their Savior because He suffered and atoned for our sins. 

I love the object lesson and handouts that Sugardoodle has in her Sharing Time Kit. Her other Sharing Time Kit goes great with Enrichment Activity 2 as well.

The following are resources unless otherwise noted.
