YW September lesson #3
This Power Point Covers:
"Why Do We Fast?"
I love this lesson because "Why" we fast may not be something we think about very often. It can become commonplace to observe fast Sunday and go about our business. This lesson pointed out "Why" as well as the blessings available to all of us when we fast with a purpose.
I used the talk "Blessings of a Proper Fast" by Carl Pratt from the lesson outline. I also used "True to the Faith" as content for the slides. I found a story in the September 2008 New Era called "Not So Fast." I loved this story. I included it because I thought it was a great "real world" example that the youth may have experienced themselves.
The quote on the handout comes from the above story. I think its simple yet powerful!
Have a great lesson,
May Lesson #1
This Power Point Covers:
"How do I receive personal revelation?"
This lesson was such a great reminder for me. Sometimes I forget that simply praying when I have a question isn't enough. When I am searching for an answer it's important to slow down, put forth effort, search and listen. The vast majority of the slides comes from "True to the Faith" under Revelation. I loved the list of things we can do in order to invite revelation into our lives. (I used this for the handout) I am excited to teach this to the girls. I am also excited to teach them how to recognize the whisperings of the spirit.
I love the talk and videos by Elder Bednar entitled "Patterns of Light" I planned on showing the video until I watched the second option "Hearing His Voice" Unfortunately, I know I won't have time for both so I chose the 2nd because I liked hearing from the youth and the challenge they present for the viewers. Either are fabulous! Watch them and pick which works best for
Slide 16 I plan on asking the girls this question and having them list answers before we proceed.
For whatever reason I decided not to include a lot of images/pictures on the slides. There was a lot of info I wanted to include and it started getting "cluttered." So , the slides are simple but the message is profound!
Have a great lesson! Jen
P.S. Sorry for being so slow this month! We had stake conference last week so I took my time. :)
**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!
