Welcome to Church Babies

My Mother and I were Nursery Leaders in the Primary Program affiliated with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day saints (LDS).  These are materials we gathered over the years.  She teaches school; so we pulled ideas from church manuals,  school books, scrapbooking...


When we put these lessons together we were teaching out of the orange Nursery Manual, Primary 1 (the one for the Sunbeams).  The current Nursery Manual is Behold Your Little Ones (2008).  Everything can be found using the tabs on top of this page.

New Nursery Manual in 2008

Yes, there's a new nursery manual out. I LOVE IT! I bought it just for me to have, even though I'm not in nursery anymore. I love how each lesson has a simple plan and includes a coloring page.

This blog is set up and the posts are labeled after the old orange nursery manual. I hope you still find the color pages and crafts helpful, even though they don't exactly match up with the lesson numbers and names anymore.

Our children teach us what life is all about."
