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!
I love the question "Who could be blessed by your compassion?" instead of the obvious people I might think of, I want to think a little deeper. I want to think on the uncomfortable side of things...maybe the people who could be blessed the most by our compassion are the ones who we think deserve it the least. Maybe it's the driver who cuts you off, maybe it's a co-worker who is always against you. Maybe it's someone who has hurt you...badly. I think if I can offer compassion when it's difficult I will grow immensely and BOTH of us will be blessed.
Christ is the ultimate example of compassion and kindness to all; especially those who did not deserve it. I hope I can follow the Savior's example and extend my love and compassion to ALL!
December Lesson #1
This Power Point Covers:
"How Can I Invite Others To Come Unto Christ?"
When was the last time you prayed for an opportunity to share the gospel? Ya, me too...It's been a while.
This lesson was a great reminder to me that I need to share the goodness of the gospel with others. When we think about all the blessings that come from the gospel it seems selfish that we wouldn't share the good news. I used the talks in the "Come Follow Me" outline found on lds.org. I also included some of the thoughts from Elder Bednar about sharing the gospel through social media. Most of the youth are using some form of social media each day. It's a great avenue for them (and us) to be a force for good.
The video "Because I Have Been Given Much, I Too Must Give" is awesome. If you have time, its a great video to share with the girls.
I hope you 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!
