The Sacrament by John Bytheway







It's understandable that some children appear bored or distracted during sacrament meeting. Many young Latter-day Saints are probably unsure about the true meaning of the sacrament and why we attend. With this in mind, bestselling author John Bytheway has composed a delightful poem (inspired by a short poem by Walter H. Horne) to help Latter-day Saints young and old appreciate the ordinance of the sacrament. In particular, children will learn what they should be thinking about (and not be thinking about) during this sacred time as well as what the sacrament can do for all of us.

Beautifully illustrated by Nathan Pinnock, this thought-provoking story about a young boy and his grandpa is a gentle reminder about the importance of remembering the Lord Jesus Christ, especially during this special meeting meant for Him.

My Review
This book came at a perfect time for our family. We have been working hard to be more reverent during the Sacrament, but really focusing our thoughts on the Savior sometimes doesn't happen as my husband and 15yo help administer and pass the sacrament and the 11yo tries to help me keep the little men quiet. This book really made a difference for all of us through the sweet story with the author's grandpa and the beautiful pictures. I think it would make a fabulous gift for anyone and especially for those with young children.
