The purpose of Primary 7 Lesson 17: The Parable of the Sower and the Wheat Tares is to understand and apply spiritual messages in Christ's parables.
I really love this free Scripture Journal printable from A Lively Hope. It's a great visual for the Parable of the Sower.
The following resources unless otherwise stated are all linked back to LDS.org resources so you already know they are approved.
"The Parable of the Sower" by Elder Dallin H. Oaks
"Finding Lasting Peace and Building Eternal Families" by Elder L. Tom Perry
The handout packet for Primary 7 Lesson 17 contains two journal pages- one for the parable of the wheat and the tares and one about how we should use our ears, eyes, and hearts. I loved Heidi's depiction of the parable of the sower so much, I didn't do my own (see the top of this post).
