If you are teaching Love One Another this year to your Primary kids in Singing Time, you’ve come to the right spot! We’ve worked really hard to create and share these 21 Love One Another Singing Time Ideas!
We have Love One Another planned as part of our 2022 Come Follow Me Primary songs! I love this song as the message is something that is especially important in this current climate of contention and taking sides. It reminds us of our Savior’s love for us, as well.
I spend a little bit of time at the beginning of the year planning out an entire year of singing time ideas! It only takes me a few hours to brainstorm and strategize and then I feel SO much more prepared for the year ahead. Even if I have a busy week, I have some ideas to go to and make it happen!
One of my secret weapons that makes this so incredibly fast and easy is my Song Planner worksheet! I always think it’s fun to see a sneak peek of how people brainstorm out their ideas, so here’s my preview! See how just a small brainstorm session makes it easy to plan out the idea from there?
