Christmas FHE Lesson – Like a Snowflake, We’re Unique

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

Use this Christmas FHE Lesson to teach about our unique divinity and how we can use our talents and gifts to serve others throughout the holiday season.



Jeremiah 1:5

Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.



Every Star Is Different | Children’s Songbook pg. 142

1. Ev’ry star is diff’rent,
And so is ev’ry child.
Some are bright and happy,
And some are meek and mild.
Ev’ry one is needed
For just what he can do.
You’re the only person
Who ever can be you.

A shining star, shining brightly,
Not so very far, shining brightly;
Be a shining star. Shine so brightly;
Shine right where you are, brightly!

2. I can shine for others
And let them feel my love,
Follow the commandments
That come from God above.
I can help another
To learn to choose the right.
Having faith and courage
Will let my star shine bright.

A shining star, shining brightly,
Not so very far, shining brightly;
Be a shining star. Shine so brightly;
Shine right where you are, brightly!




Begin the lesson by making some paper snowflakes. As you make the paper snowflakes, ask the children to think about what makes them feel unique from others.

Read aloud: In many places around the world, Christmas becomes cold and snow begins to fall. Snowflakes are a popular symbol of the winter season. Even though snowflakes are small, they can teach us a big lesson about God’s love for us and how we can use our unique talents to spread the Christmas message.

Ask: What is something unique about you? (If needed, parents or leaders can share something unique about each child or share something unique about themselves.)

Read aloud: Just like snowflakes, we are each unique. No one is exactly like you. The way you think and feel is unique. Your testimony is unique. In fact, Heavenly Father is the one who made you unique. He loves you just as you are. He knows about all of your beautiful details.

Because we are unique, you can serve Heavenly Father in unique ways.

Ask: What are some ways you like to serve Heavenly Father? What are some unique things you can do to spread Christmas joy this season? (You can give some examples based on your knowledge of the children’s gifts to help the discussion if needed).

Finish the lesson by bearing your testimony of each child’s unique divinity and power to serve others.


Begin the lesson by thinking of an experience in your life that highlights how you’re different from someone else. Before sharing your story, ask everyone to think about why God made us all unique. Share your story.

Ask: Why do you think God made each of us so different?

Read aloud: Snowflakes are often used as a symbol of uniqueness, beauty, and detail. We can learn much from the small snowflake. We are all divine children of a loving Heavenly Father and we’ve been blessed with our own set of talents and spiritual gifts. The details of our lives are known to God.

Though we are all different, we can use our unique talents to bring each other together in the love of Jesus Christ.

Ask: How can we use our talents and gifts to serve others this Christmas season?

Share a personal experience when you were able to serve others because of a unique gift or talent. Ask others to share any personal experiences they have. Finish with your testimony.


Read through the following article. Spend a few minutes contemplating the talents and gifts God has given you. Make a goal on how to use your talents to serve someone this Christmas season.
