Lucky me, I get to teach the Young Women in our ward! My special group is the ‘Beehive-class’, the 12-13yr old girls. This week’s lesson was on obedience (to the commandments) and as always they impressed me with their thoughtful comments and questions.
There was a doozy of a question of whether I would sacrifice my children if God required it of me…. obviously inspired by the story of Abraham and Isaac.
For a handout I used this idea here . I loved the quote by elder Robert D Hales using airplanes as an example:
I’m grateful for all the preparation that pilots do in the simulators preparing for worst-case scenarios. (Hopefully) you’ll never see pilots in an emergency situation completely unprepared, frantically flicking through the manuals trying to find a way to avert disaster… a great lesson in how it is better to Prepare and Prevent than to Repair and Repent.
My little squadron of airplanes ready to take off…… so much fun to make.
