Come Follow Me Object Lesson Week 8: Blessed are the Peacemakers

Do you use object lessons for your lessons? I love using object lessons for my lessons at church and at home.

Earlier this year I decided to start sharing weekly Object Lessons for the new Come Follow Me curriculum. I decided that creating a video would be much easier than writing up a post to explain each object lesson. I have enjoyed creating and sharing these ideas each week, but was only sharing them on YouTube. I realized, after receiving a few comments, that it would be beneficial to also post the video here each week. So, here is my Come Follow Me Object Lesson for Week 8: Blessed are the Peacemakers.

For this week’s object lesson you need two simple objects: a balloon and an empty water bottle.

This object lesson would be a great way to begin your Primary lesson or to help your family understand and discuss what they can do to be a peacemaker. Watch the video below for more details.

I hope you enjoy this week’s object lesson. What other resources have you found work for your family for the new Come Follow Me curriculum. I’d love to know, so leave a comment and let me know.

Thanks so much for stopping by and for watching. Have a wonderful day!

    Thanks for the primary help! Great, simple idea that will be helpful in my class and in my home.

    I loved the idea….sadly, for me, it’s posted way to late.
    I live in Belgium, Europe and so received the lesson after our Sunday class in Primary.
    Is there anyway you could post your great ideas earlier?
    Thanks so much for all the work and help you give through Little LDS Ideas.

    1. Hi Veerle! I actually posted this on YouTube last week. I wasn’t going to share them on my site, but then realized that a lot of my readers weren’t seeing them on YouTube, so will be sharing them on here after I get them posted. Sorry you missed last week’s.
