Revelation to Mary and Joseph by Jennifer Tolbert
This is the story of how God revealed his plan to Mary and Joseph.
1. God has a plan.
2. We can trust that Jesus is God's Son.
3. Mary and Joseph submitted to God's plan for their life even if it wasn't what they expected.
22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet:
23 “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son,
and they shall call his name Immanuel”
(which means, God with us).

Introducing the Story Ideas
1. Find baby photos of the kids in your classroom. Let the children guess who each of the babies is. Say: Today we are going to learn about a very special baby. This is a baby sent by God.
2. Play a game of Good News. Let each child share a piece of good news.
