Nurturing Families Together
I couldn't decide between these two quotes so I decided to make them both! I love love love the idea of our homes being "Laboratories of God's Love." I like the analogy too because the things going on in labs are not always perfect! There is a lot of trial and error and learning from mistakes. Isn't that how our homes are? We are experimenting at times to figure out how to parent each child the best way we can.
The second quote from Sister Burton asks us to consider how often we INTENTIONALLY speak kind words to each other. I love this question. It inspires me to try harder. It inspires me to think about each of my family members individually and to think of something specific that they need to hear.
Enjoy your last month of summer!
YW September Lesson #2
This power point covers:
"How Do The Things I Say Affect Me & Others?"
Another reminder that really applies to all of us! One aspect of this lesson that I had not thought of was how we speak to ourselves! That inner voice inside our head should be positive, not negative. What we think about affects how we speak and act towards ourselves and others.
This is also a lesson on language...avoiding swearing, vulgarity, gossip, cruel comments, bad jokes, etc. This is huge as school starts and kids are trying to figure out who they are and where they fit in. I hope our youth don't compromise their standards to fit in.
I also included a bunch of Mormonads from lds.org. I'm a sucker for Mormonads. I grew up with them on my bedroom wall. I love the visuals and hope the image and message will stick with our youth as they go from day to day.
The two videos in the outline are awesome! We have used both for family night and they both apply to this lesson if you'd like to show one.
The handout is a quote from Larry M. Gibson (General Young Mens Presidency) It points out the power of our thoughts, words and actions. They truly are connected.
Have a great lesson!
**Please Note: Due to different versions of power point the slides may need to be adjusted after you download them. Please go through the power point before your lesson to make sure the pictures and the text are formatted correctly! I just opened a file I made using my laptop with my iPad and the font was different, colors were different and some of the pictures were in the wrong place. It may take a little tweeking! :)**
I'm a 36 year old Mom of 4 kiddos, 3 boys (12, 4 & 2 years old) and one little princess (9). I have an awesome hubby who puts up with my craziness...He supports me when I spend way too much time on my YW lessons. I started this blog for fun and have been so excited to watch it grow and watch others being able to use the Power Point lessons, handouts and other ideas I have posted. Thank you for stopping by!
