FREE PRINTABLE // How Is a New LDS Latter-day Prophet & Church President Called?

With the recent passing of President Thomas S. Monson I know many families will want an easy way to explain to their kids and teens how a new Prophet and President of the church is chosen. I made this printable chart to show the process and included a great quote from Spencer W. Kimball about the succession of the church Presidency. 

"It is reassuring to know that [a new President is]. . .not elected through committees and conventions with all their conflicts, criticisms, and by the vote of men, but [is] called of God and then sustained by the people. The pattern divine allows for no errors, no conflicts, no ambitions, no ulterior motives. The Lord has reserved for himself the calling of his leaders over his church.” --Spencer W. Kimball

I will post a brand new Family Home Evening lesson this Sunday all about the new Prophet, his life, and his teachings!
