OBJECT LESSONS:

alt I compare the fact that we have only "one" government (and Godhead) and it is always referred to as "one". But that it is made up of "three" legislative branches....executive, legislative and judicial.  Each branch separate and distinct from the other two with different roles to play but nevertheless considered and referred to as "one".  (Idea by Deborah)
alt Read the first article of faith.  Get a candle and light it with a match.  Remind them that the Godhead has three distinct parts.  The candle can represent Heavenly Father.  The flame can represent Jesus Christ, the light of the world.  The oxygen needed for the flame to burn can represent the Holy Ghost, whom we cannot see.  We can see only the effect he has in our lives and the lives of others.
