January: The Godhead Outline
This Power Point covers:
How can I know my Heavenly Father?
Why is Jesus Christ important to me?
Our YW President asked us to combine these two lessons. They actually went together very well. I referenced the talk by Elder Hales entitled "Seeking to Know God, Our Heavenly Father, and His Son, Jesus Christ" and that is the basis for the Power Point.
I used this object lesson from Mormon Share. It suggests using pictures of light that we see every day and likening it to the Savior. This is why I like Power points. Instead of printing out pictures I can simply download them into the PP. It saves time and lots of ink!
I also found an article called "I Believe in Christ" from the March 2008 New Era. I have uploaded a copy at the top of this post. It includes numerous short testimonies of Christ from LDS youth. I thought it might help the girls to hear from youth their age. Choose a few and let the girls read them out loud to the class.
The video "Reclaimed" is wonderful! I hope you all have time to show it during your lesson. I think it gives the girls a very practical look at the power of the atonement. None of us should try to dig up our "old garbage" that the Savior has reclaimed. If you haven't watched it, I highly recommend it.
The image for the handout is fairly simple. I don't want leaders to feel like they have to bake treats or go out and buy something for every lesson. If you can, great, go ahead and attach this image to something fun! The dollar store or party aisle of WalMart/Target has tons of "seek" items...small magnifying glasses, little binoculars, cheap little sunglasses etc. If you want to attach it to candy, great! If you just want to print them and hand them out, that works too!
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!
