Sunday School Lesson about The Virgin Mary and her Life of Obedience

“Behold the maidservant of the Lord” Luke 1:38

When you think of Saint Mary, what is the first thing that comes to your mind?

Mother of God?

First among all women?

Pride of our race?

How about the CHAMPION of Obedience?

She was all of the above but this week’s Sunday School Lesson about The Virgin Mary and her Life of Obedience focused on another aspect of Saint Mary’s remarkable personality.


She was humbly obedient- beyond measure!


In order to visually explain this concept to the children ( we are using Zoom calls as Sunday School has moved online during Covid), I created this PowerPoint presentation that I am blessed to share with you. I pray that you find it helpful; feel free to use it should you be giving a Sunday School Lesson about The Virgin Mary and her Life of Obedience. This lesson was for grade 1 and grade 2-age group 6-8 years old.


The first slide shows one of my favorite conceptual images: Eve and Saint Mary. One woman’s disobedience led us out of Paradise and the other woman’s obedience restored us through salvation.

Following the lesson, we watched this lovely video that the kids enjoyed and it plugs in ‘obey your parents’ which is a win-win for everyone 🙂


The video was found on youtube on this channel: Douglas Talks
