Primary Class Missionary Story Activity from “Fourth Floor, Last Door”

I’ve recently been called back to Primary, teaching the CTR4s! (Yay!) Anyway, I was teaching this lesson from the Primary 3 manual “Lesson 24: The Lord Helps Missionaries,” but this activity could work with any missionary themed¬†Primary lesson¬†or Sharing Time. Taking President Dieter F. Uchtdorf’s story “Fourth Floor, Last Door,” we acted out the story […]

Great Idea for Creating Personalized YW Value Experiences

Kudos to Mormon Girl at the Personal Progress Helper Blogspot for coming up with a list of General Conference talks from April 2014 that have application to the Young Women values. These can make a handy start for someone seeking to personalize a value experience: read a talk and write your feelings or observations about […]

General Authority Clout and Correct Attribution

This is one of my pet peeves. Why is it that so many people post quotes on Facebook and Pinterest that are attributed to leaders of the LDS Church when these leaders were actually quoting someone else? If you are reading the Ensign or an address that is published on LDS.org, you will see a […]

Scripture Quotes Game for FHE

The September 2011 Friend magazine had this cute story about a family that played “Scripture Quotes,” and I thought it would make a great Family Home Evening lesson/game for our family. The gist of the game is that someone thinks of a quotation of something that someone said in the scriptures and everyone else must […]

LDS Remembrances of 9/11

This is a wonderful video of LDS 9/11 survivor Victor Guzman speaking of that day, and also addressing how he dealt with the emotional stresses years later. President Monson (along with other religious leaders) was given an opportunity to blog at the Washington Post about 9/11. President Monson’s contribution is here: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/guest-voices/post/911-destruction-allowed-us-to-spiritually-rebuild/2011/09/08/gIQAbkjKCK_blog.html. Also, as 9/11 […]

One-in-a-Million Primary Children Launched

I just found this sweet little web page through the Friend magazine online. It commemorates the one million children served in the Primary organization throughout the worldwide Church. It is a child-friendly page — just click on a star on the world map to hear a profile video of a child somewhere in the world. […]

Help for Atonement Object Lesson With Bleach and Food Coloring

(How to make this object lesson work or “Help! My bleach did not turn the water clear!”) I am teaching Sharing Time tomorrow, and it is a lesson on the Atonement. The Sharing Time Outline, page 9, suggests: Testify that one way the Atonement of Jesus Christ saves us is that it saves us from […]

Motherhood: An Eternal Partnership with God

This is my new favorite video from MormonMessages. Elder Jeffrey R. Holland says, “May I say to mothers collectively, in the name of the Lord, you are magnificent. You are doing terrifically well. The very fact that you have been given this responsibility is everlasting evidence of the trust your Father in Heaven has in […]

Why Is It Important To Study The Scriptures?

Studying the scriptures is important, and everyone would benefit from its practice. As we learned from Nephi’s experience of fetching the brass plates in Jerusalem, without the scriptures nations will perish (1 Nephi 4:13-17). We need scriptures to teach us the commandments. We need scriptures to teach us doctrine (2 Timothy 3: 15, 16). The […]

The general menu page is here: General Conference Activities for Children on LDS.org Here are some of the activities they list: Conference Notebook This is for children that can write, and would work well for youth and adults too. There […]
