Relief Society Handout {Ch. 10 The Scriptures: The Most Profitable of All Study}

BlogPicHWHCh10CheatSheet-01

We’ve heard you and we here at SugarDoodle want to try something new for those Relief Society instructors requesting help.  I’m a visual learner, and do well with a take home that reminds me of the concepts learned during instruction.  And for me, even as an adult, this method of learning is still quite effective.  It’s much of why I became a doodler by trade.  This week, I’m excited to offer a handout that may help you simplify your lesson preparation, and stay clear from, as President Uchtdorf refers to as, a foolish sacrifice.  Remember his talk found HERE and the example of spending many hours stitching the title of the lesson into homemade pot holders for each member of the class?   Let us spend those hours for you, so you can spend time in the scriptures and other gospel study during your prep time.

Teachings of the Presidents of the Church:  Howard W. Hunter is our study manual this year.  I started with an upcoming lesson for June found in Chapter 10, The Scriptures:  The Most Profitable of All Study.  I shared a post a few weeks back about prayer and hard work found HERE.  The scriptures to me are right there at the top of the same list of habits to learn. Scriptures are pretty much the answer to 99% of the questions asked in our church meetings and it’s definitely one of the most basic ways we can stay happy in this life.  I absolutely loved this lesson using quotes from President Howard W. Hunter.  His ideas on scripture study are spot on.  I created a little cheat sheet for your class to refer to during or after your lesson, you decide whether you give it to them before class starts or at the end of class.  I created this first handout in black and white.  It’s a one pager, easy to copy or print off with a minimal cost.  You can color it or they can color it, doodle on it, make more notes, it’s up to them.  You might find sisters using their scripture markers or pulling out the diaper bag crayons to doodle and take notes from their own conclusions on their personal cheat sheet.  The printable can be found in the Sugardoodle Shop HERE.  You might even want to share this resource with the priesthood instructors.  The next thing you may find is they just might add a lace cloth to the table.  Study on!

Hugs,

MeckMom’s Teaching Tip: FREE Gospel Art Kit Scripture Stickers

The scriptures are always the best tool to teach kids the gospel – but they can be intimidating for kids to use. When my kids were little I really wanted to help them connect with their scriptures (without spending a ton) so I created these cool, transparent scripture stickers based on the Gospel Art Kit found on LDS.org.

Here’s a quick video explaining why I created them and how they’ve made a difference in my family’s scripture study.

This year, I completely revamped the original stickers I created back in 2008. I included tons of new pictures from each of the four books of scripture (140 stickers total) and added all the the references and page numbers right on the sheet. I also formatted them to fit perfectly on my favorite peel-n-stick sticker paper so you could skip all the cropping time. They’re so much easier to use now. Here’s a pic of me putting the new set on my son’s scrips while I was waiting to pickup kids in my car. Multi-tasking moms unite. 😉

#Hallelujah Day 4 of Easter Advent for Holy Week

Day 4 He is Risen-01

Day 4 of the Easter Advent for Holy Week is a little more involved if you are interested in studying the Jewish Passover and it’s relation to The Last Supper.  It’s quite interesting and I loved learning about the symbols and meaning behind the foods of the Seder plate.  Consider sampling different foods of the Passover.  There are many recipes online or you can just prepare them simple.  Many butchers offer a shank bone during the Passover period on the calendar, but you can always call your local butcher and pre-order it if you are interested in this portion of the outline.   Make sure you have your 8X10 print of the Matthew 28:5-6 scripture printable.  If you would like it in a larger size, it is also available in an 11X14″ separately HERE .

#Hallelujah Day 3 of the Easter Advent Kit for Holy Week

Day 3 I Know That My Redeemerblog

I’m going to share two posts today, since tomorrow is Sunday.  On Day #3  your family will discuss the Parables that Christ taught in the Bible.  And if you choose to play the Parables Charades or form a clay oil lamp like what the Parable of the Ten Virgins used, have fun with it.  I did it with my daughter’s junior high age friends one night as I was prepping for the photo shoot.  Two of them really got into the project and spent an hour forming the most perfect lamp.  You can imagine their huge disappointment when we realized it wasn’t a oven bake clay.  So let that be a lesson to you.  The other three  just did what they could to get through the exercise.  So again, tailor these experiences to your family.

If you are just joining us, the kit is available HERE! And no, it’s not too late to start!
