January: The Godhead Outline
This Power Point Covers:
"What do we know about the nature of the Godhead?"
The Godhead is one of those topics that I feel is SUPER important for the girls to understand. The Godhead is one of the reasons our Church is different from many Christian churches today. Understanding "Why" and being able to explain that to someone not of our faith is invaluable. In addition to the articles found in the lesson outline on lds.org I also used the following:
Learning About The Godhead New Era January 2013
Rejoice in Our Knowledge of the Godhead Liahona Feb 2005
The second article is where I came up with the handout idea. I have attached a JPEG with just one of the titles or a PDF with 3 to a page. My plan is to print them on cardstock and attach a snack size "Almond Joy" to each one.
Why would we rejoice? What I hope these girls take away from this lesson is that our knowledge of the Godhead makes it easier to develop a relationship with each of the members of the Godhead. Knowing we are Daughters of a Heavenly Father who loves us and created us in his image is reason to rejoice! Knowing that the Savior is literally our older brother and our mediator with Heavenly Father can provide us with a sense of comfort, hope, and a reason to rejoice! Knowing that the Holy Ghost is our constant companion and will testify of truth to us, helping us to discern right from wrong, is reason to rejoice!
Our knowledge that these three beings are separate and accessible to us can provide an opportunity to grow closer to each member of the Godhead. Each relationship is individual and important and has a purpose on our road back to our Heavenly Father's presence.
Slide #14 gives a chance for the girls to "role play." The role play includes answering questions about the Godhead from friends who aren't of our faith. HERE are some questions and possible answers you can use. Depending on the size of your class you could split the girls into small groups or have individuals answer.
**On a side note...Thank you for so many kind comments and emails. I feel so honored and humbled that these power points and handouts are helpful to other YW Leaders.
**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!
