(poster made by the very clever ‘Cocoa’ ofChocolate on my Cranium – an outstanding blog for you to follow!)
Wondering how it fits in with The Greatest Story? I did too….. but the reference was to
Elder Gene R Cook
“The prompting that goes unresponded to may not be repeated. Writing down what we have been prompted with is vital. A special thought can be lost later in the day through the rough and tumble of life. God should not, and may not choose to repeat the prompting if we assign what is given such a low priority as to put it aside”
elder Neal A Maxwell
(“Press Forward” p 122)
I had a lot of fun making these. I used the same tutorial as for the heart in the post below, but I changed the dimensions of the paper ever so slightly to a 8×4 cm rectangle. I made 2 different handouts, haven’t quite decided which one to use yet. Instructions can be found here.
The first handout has a quote by Marvin J Ashton:
“An honest heart will lead to a change of heart. Spiritually speaking, a change of heart is not only desirable, but essential for eternal life. The Book of Mormon describes the conversion experience, which all of us must have, as a “mighty change in us, or in our hearts, that we have no more disposition to do evil, but to good continually (Mosiah 5:2)”
The second handout has a quote by elder Dallin H Oaks: “Testimony is to know and to feel. Conversion is to do and to become”
I have been looking forward to teaching this lesson for ages. If there is one thing I would love for my YW to have, it would be a love of the scriptures – to have them come alive and to be a source of testimony, knowledge, guidance, strength and comfort.
Still pondering the details…
For another handout I will use the one above (from LDS Handouts). Quite a few of the girls have notebooks where they are gluing in the handouts from the lesson to save them so I am happy to provide.
(hmm… still haven’t quite worked out the knack of photgraphy in the dark with my new fancy camera….)
I’m trying to instill a love of service to others in the kids. A good time to do a little service project is FHE, so one Monday a month is dedicated to this. Last night the “waffle ninjas” sprung into action, and armed with a rainbow of hearts and a plate of waffles, they very excitedly but quietly decorated someone’s garden and left a plate on their doorstep which would hopefully cheer that person’s heart and feel the love that we were trying to share.
I love this origami heart….. learned to make it here
Little Possum turned 9 and what better way to celebrate than to go to the TreeTop Adventure Park?
October’s Ensign will be dedicated exclusively to the Book of Mormon, its origin and its purpose.
I have been wondering and pondering what to do with my blog and when I stumbled across this blog and the above inspired forum coming up in the month of October, I have decided that I will participate. Will you?
