​​President Nelson encouraged us at conference to have a change of heart and “commence a lifelong quest to hear Him.”This fun Hear Him Easter chain can help you get started on that quest!

As we celebrate the week of Easter, practice hearing Him each day with the activities on this fun chain.  Each strip lists the themes for the day with a simple question to ponder.

 

Come back to this post each day for a short lesson, activity or printable to go along with the days theme!

Making Your “Hear Him” Chain

To make your chain, simply download and print out the pages, then cut the strips and assemble the chain.

Here’s some tips and ideas for putting your chain

  • Print on patterned / colored cardstock, or on construction paper
  • Or print it out on simple white paper, then color fun spring designs on the back of each strip
  • Starting with the MONDAY strip, staple each in order. When you are finished assembling the chain, staple the SUNDAY strip to the “Hear Him” picture at the top.
  • Post your chain in a place where you can be reminded each day.
  • The strips are designed so that if you choose to print on 2 colors of paper, they will end up alternating with each day

​​As President Nelson counseled – hearing Him is a lifelong quest – not something for us to do only this week, but continually throughout our lives. This week is the perfect time to get started!

​SATURDAY– Hear Him Through Prayer 

Today is about hearing Him through prayer. What a blessing we have to have direct access to Him through prayer. 

The Week of Easter:

After Jesus’ body was placed into the tomb, his friends and family turned to prayer for comfort and strength. Prayer is our direct access to Heavenly Father. We, too, can pray to Him for comfort and strength any time.

Ponder / Discuss:
  • Do I pray often enough?
  • What can I do to make my prayers more meaningful?
  • Who can I pray for?
  • How does praying help me hear Him better and more?
Activity: My Steps of Prayer Puzzle Strips 
  • Cut out the strips on the lines.
  • Discuss the purpose of each one (Why do we pray to Heavenly Father? What kind of things we should thank Him for and ask for, Why do we close in Jesus’ name, etc.)
  • Then allow the children to practice putting the strips in the correct order.
Activity: My Steps of Prayer Worksheet

This worksheet will guide your family through the steps of prayer and give them the opportunity to think about who and what they can pray for.

​FRIDAY– Hear Him Through Forgiveness

Today is about hearing Him by forgiving others. When we are focused on hurt and anger, it is harder for the Spirit to be with us and inspire us. When we forgive and let go, we are more open to hearing Him in our lives.

The Week of Easter:

During the last days of His life here on earth, Jesus is mocked and scorned by the people and eventually left to die. He shows us the perfect example of forgiveness when He says, “Father forgive them…” Jesus wants us to also forgive others.

Lesson: Why We Need to Forgive

(This lesson requires a balloon. You can use a helium balloon, but a simple regular balloon will work great. (We all know we don’t want to be out picking up balloons about right now…!)  And, if you don’t have a regular balloon to blow up, simply use the attached printable.)

We all make mistakes and at some point in our lives, we are sure to be hurt by someone else. Jesus tells us that we need to forgive those who hurt us, even if it is hard. Forgiving can be hard sometimes. Think about some things people have done that have hurt you or your feelings.

Holding onto hurt feelings doesn’t help us to be close to Christ. When we are upset with others, it is harder for us to hear Him and to do what he asks. He already suffered for all our mistakes and sins and asks us to forgive and let go.

Ponder / Discuss:
  • Why does Heavenly Father want us to forgive others?
  • Who in my life do I need to forgive?
  • How will I feel after I forgive?
  • How will this help me to hear Him better?
Activity: Let it Go
  • On your balloon, write down the hurt feelings you feel and the things you need to forgive others for.
  • Once you have them all written down, say a prayer in your heart to ask Heavenly Father to help you forgive.
  • Then, let it go! (Do a sing along with Elsa if you want!)
  • If you’re using a helium balloon – take it outside and watch it float away. If you are using a regular balloon, simply pop it. If you are using a paper balloon, rip it to little pieces.
  • Then, move on and don’t look back!

Ready to forgive and feel lighter? Just grab a balloon and marker, or print out this balloon printable and get busy!

THURSDAY– Hear Him by Remembering Him

Today is about hearing Him by remembering Him, by keeping our part of our baptismal covenants. Recognizing the blessings He has given us and always remembering Him in all we do can help us be closer to Him – and hear Him better.

The Week of Easter:

Jesus gathered His disciples for the last supper. Though they did not understand all the things He told them would happen, he invited them to always remember Him. We, too, can always remember Him.

Ponder / Discuss:
  • What sacrifices did Jesus Christ make for me?
  • How do these sacrifices bless my life?
  • How can I show my gratitude for these blessings?
  • How can I remember Him always, as I promised in my baptismal covenants?
  • Why does He matter more than anything else?

MONDAY – Hear Him by Removing Distractions

The Week of Easter:

When Jesus went to the temple, the people were focused on the things of the world, instead of on Him. Today, we also have many distractions in our lives that can keep us from hearing Him.

Activity: How Do Distractions Keep Me From Hearing Him?
  • Choose one person to blindfold and have them stand at one end of the room. Instruct them to listen to the voices of the others to lead them across the room.
  • Once this person is blindfolded, choose another person to be the “guide.”
  • This person will speak quietly and give proper directions.
  • The others in the group will loudly call out incorrect directions and distractions.  The blindfolded person must try to filter out the loud voices to make his or her way across the room safely.
  • When done, switch and allow someone else a turn to listen.
  • Discuss how this activity is like hearing the voice of the Lord, then ponder or discuss the questions below.
Ponder / Discuss:
  • What things of the world are a distraction to me?
  • Why is it important to reduce these distractions in my life?
  • What can I do to have less distractions so I can better Hear Him?
