I want my children to feel they know Joseph Smith. One of the ways to do this is to use Silent Video.
Play a video (doesn’t have to be this one…lds.org has several short video selections) about Joseph Smith on a large screen for the children, but turn the sound off and sing the first verse yourself about 3 times (or however many times the song fits) through as the video plays. I sing it more slowly, often pointing to something on the screen. I turn off the video (in this video it is right before it shows Emma crying as he is taken to Carthage), then turn to the children and bear my testimony. It is powerful and wonderful, and the children get a feel for who Joseph was. They hear the melody, rhythm, and words over and over again in personal way. The visual images and the feelings the children feel as they watch and listen link up to this song in their heads. I love watching the children’s eyes as we experience this together.
