Updated Scripture Mastery Key Words

     Recently I had sent Scripture Mastery mnemonics to help your students learn the key words to references. I discovered that I made a couple mistakes by accidently using some of the old key words, instead of the updated ones for 2015.  So I have made the changes.  This way, the key words align with the new SM Bookmarks and the SM Cards.  So here is the link to post where the change has been made. http://nwseminaryshare.weebly.com/home/old-testament-sm-mnemonics […]

#PersonalProgressChallenge Week Three: Fulfilling My Mission

We’ve reached week three, which means we should all have the hang of it now, right? I know I’ve fallen behind on a few things, but I’m still trying my best—and luckily I’m ahead in a couple other areas, so I can spend those weeks catching up! This week I discovered HashAtIt.com which shows posts across social networks with the same hashtag, and so I decided to use it to keep an eye out for the #PersonalProgressChallenge hashtag. I’ve installed the hashtag widget at the bottom of the website so I can keep track, especially since I’m not an Instagram user.

The Old Testament Bookshelf

This graphic can be used in a few ways.  It can be used for helping your class learn the Old Testament books in order. Try using the song on page 114 of the Children’s Songbook to help with that.           It also can be used to show the class how the Old Testament books are grouped and how they are not in chronological order.  Have your students group the books in their own scriptures on the page just before Genesis 1. The Hebrew words are what Jew […]

Concrete Steps to Success

You've got a computer or file cabinet full of great ideas you've collected over the years from past callings, right? So did we! In 2003, Jenny Smith began sharing her ideas online for LDS teachers and leaders. She hoped members of her home branch in Mississippi would benefit from the activities she was hearing about in areas where the church was more established. She also began sharing her lesson handouts so that teachers didn't have to re-invent the wheel.

After seeing that the demand for these helps was huge, Jenny, working with her husband Jared, responded by creating the first ever database of LDS clipart and handouts. Soon followed the first and largest database of object lessons, the first ever database of Primary Talks, the first database of Scripture Mastery games, the first ever database driven helps for every lesson in the (old) Young Women and Primary manuals (now deprecated), and most recently, the first ever database of gospel teaching techniques. These databases grew with Jenny's own work and with the generous contributions of users like you.

Believing that gospel information should be shared freely and generously, the files and ideas on Jenny's websites can be downloaded for free -- no registration or payment required.
