Wilford Woodruff Mission to England Reader’s Theater

I used this document when teaching the Establishment of Nauvoo lesson and D&C 124-127.   Both the PDF and ODT version include name tags and the text to include in the letter. —— Wilford Woodruff (speaking to himself): Whew. That’s the second sermon I have preached today. After the meeting this evening I would assume that […]

D&C 121-123: The Missouri Mormon War and Extermination Order

The post D&C 121-123: The Missouri Mormon War and Extermination Order appeared first on Jenny Smith’s LDS Ideas.

This was a fun lesson to research.  I am really enjoying the Joseph Smith Papers videos and finding they are very helpful in setting the stage for my class.  Since they are older and I have more time per lesson, we are able to get into some really interesting history details.

Visit us at Jenny Smith’s LDS Ideas.

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.
