May Lesson #4
This Power Point Covers:
"Why Is It Important To Study The Scriptures?"
One of the first slides in this power point says "The principal purpose of the scriptures is to testify of Christ, helping us to come unto Him and receive eternal life." I LOVE that! It goes so well with the Youth theme for this year. It truly sums up the importance of scripture study.
The content for the slides came from "True To The Faith," and the talk by Elder Richard G. Scott in the lesson outline. I have additional quotes from conference talks and New Era articles here or there and I tried to cite those sources.
The Video is from the outline..."The Book of Mormon: Messages from Heaven." I love when the videos contain other youth speaking to youth. I think it really hits home for the girls to see people their age experiencing the same challenges they are.
The handout comes from a Mormon Ad. I LOVE the mormon ads. If you have some time check out all the different mormon ads they have about scriptures on lds.org. There is another one I love that talks about the scriptures being "Unlimited Text Messages." A cute play on words the girls could definitely relate to.
Have a great lesson!
There are so many invitations in the scriptures to "Come Unto Christ" I have made a list of 10 that you can look over. I feel like the more we can use the scriptures when teaching and explaining concepts the more the youth will turn to the scriptures for answers. These scriptures (and many others) can be used to introduce the 2014 theme, for New Beginnings, or during our lessons or activities. You can either present the scriptures to the youth, or give the girls a list, split them into groups, and let them look the scriptures up and share them with the rest of the girls. I want the girls to know how much the Savior loves them and longs for them to Come to Him. Let me know if you have other ideas for incorporating the scriptures!
November: "Spiritual and Temporal Self Reliance" Outline
This Power Point Covers:
"What is the Lord's way for providing for the poor & needy?"
"How can I find solutions to my challenges and problems?"
This is another lesson I loved preparing! I truly feel the "Come Follow Me" curriculum is so inspired and provides a great environment for learning. I hope these Power Points help you as a leader provide opportunities for the girls to share their thoughts. Towards the end of this lesson I included an opportunity for the girls to split into small groups to search through a New Era or Ensign for answers to problems facing youth. I hope each girl will feel comfortable sharing her ideas. Feel free to adjust for your individual classes. For a handout, I planned on printing the "Scriptural Directory Assistance" This was produced in 2006 my Tressa Edmunds. I have retyped it because my original copy was a bit blurry. ;) My hope is that the girls come away from this lesson understanding their role in the Welfare of others and the importance in serving like Christ. I also hope they will realize how much they are loved NO MATTER WHAT! That the Lord is always there to help them. No one should feel like they are weathering the storms of this life alone, especially these beautiful Young Women. I want them to try to pray, read the scriptures, and to study the words of the prophets during their times of trial. Good luck with your lessons! ;)
**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!
