  • Sending money to missionaries and charitable causes for their projects.
  • Praying for others.

Talk with the children about why Edith did the things she did for others. Bring out that she loved Jesus and wanted to be a blessing to Him and others.

Ask the children how they think doing these deeds made Edith feel, and how they feel when they do kind deeds for others. Talk about how when we do things for others, it helps us enjoy the inspiration of heaven in our lives here and now.

ReadImagine Your Heavenly Home.” The children might enjoy drawing a picture of what they imagine for their heavenly home, or color one of these pictures.
