"What did the Master spend his life doing? He was just a teacher, teaching human souls, inspiring them to live righteously. There is no higher calling than that. Whether it be done in the mission field or here at home with a group in a Primary class, they are all eternal souls that we work with." -Ezra Taft Benson

 

 

 

Theme and Purposes of Primary

Primary is for children ages 18 months through 11 years. The Primary theme is “All thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of thy children” (3 Nephi 22:13). The purposes of Primary are to help children:

1. Feel Heavenly Father’s love for them.

2. Learn and understand the gospel of Jesus Christ.

3. Feel and recognize the influence of the Holy Ghost.

4. Prepare to make and keep sacred covenants.

Parents have the first responsibility for the spiritual and physical welfare of their children (see D&C 68:25–28). The bishopric, Primary leaders, and Primary teachers support but do not replace parents in this responsibility.

Here are links to each Category in the Primary Section, or scroll farther down for a full list of all pages in the Primary area.
