I’ve found my Primary kids are dead silent and focused on me as I share a story (and surprise them by singing a line here and there!). It really helps bring the spirit into the room and invites the children to eagerly listen to the song.

Song Story for I Know My Father Lives
One way I’ll be teaching I Know My Father Lives this year is with this song story! Since the song is so short and sweet, I included both verses in the song story.
If you decide to only introduce one verse, you can end the story right after the first verse, with the mother’s line about Jamie being a great example.
Here’s an excerpt from the song story to give you an idea of how it works:
Read: Jamie’s mom bent down and pulled her daughters face close to her own. She looked right in her eyes and exclaimed, “Oh, Jamie, we can know for sure by asking in prayer. I know our Father in Heaven answers prayers, because he has answered mine!”
Sing: “I know my Father lives and loves me too.”
Read: Jamie’s eyes started welling up with tears. “Mom, can we say a prayer together? I want to know that, too!”
The two knelt together and Jamie offered a sweet and simple prayer asking to know if Heavenly Father was there and listening to her. She started to feel warm inside, like a big hug. Jamie leaped right up from her prayer…
Sing: “The Spirit whispers this to me and tells me it is true. (He) tells me it is true!”
