Wilford Woodruff – colorized photograph

I’ve recently gotten into colorizing family history photos, and I’ve been wanting to do a series on Prophets.  It’d be cool to start a colorized church history reddit, dontcha think? Anyway, this is the first image I’ve done.  It’s Wilford Woodruff,  third prophet-president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormons), who […]

Embark in the Service of God – Boat Logo

I try to make a logo for the mutual theme every year, and this came to me the other day for the 2015 mutual theme, Embark in the Service of God from D&C 4:2.  After a few sketches to design, I still love it.  It’s better than the Church’s logo, and it’s perfect for a […]

Today I am sharing 2 new versions of my Conference 'I Spy'.
Here' what they look like:

{General Conference} Conference I Spy
The new 'I Spy' sheets aren't completely different from the old ones, but feel free to use all 4 of my sheets. I changed all of the apsotles, and then a few other things.

UP2U Gum Tags for Personal Progress & Visiting Teaching


I am always on the look-out for new ways to get the YW excited to do Personal Progress. One day while we were at the grocery store I saw a pack of UP2U gum and had an idea for a Personal Progress treat.

UP2U Gum Tags for Personal Progress & Visiting Teaching


I created this little handout that you can tape to a pack of UP2U gum to encourage the YW to keep working on their Personal Progress.

The front flap of the printable says:


UP2U Gum Tags for Personal Progress & Visiting Teaching


Lift up the front flap and you’ll see:
UP2U Gum Tags for Personal Progress & Visiting Teaching

On the back I added a great quote I found from Sister Elaine Dalton. 

Hopefully a good quote and some yummy gum can get those YW excited about Personal Progress...fingers crossed. :)
UP2U Gum Tags for Personal Progress & Visiting Teaching


While my Mom was visiting us a few weeks ago I showed her my UP2U gum idea and she loved it. She then said, 'You should make one for Visiting Teaching.' Hmmm.....why didn't I think of that. So, I got to work & created one for Visiting Teaching.

UP2U Gum Tags for Personal Progress & Visiting Teaching

As I was looking for quotes about Visiting Teaching I saw one from Bonnie D. Parkin that said, “We don’t ‘do’ Visiting Teaching. We ‘are’ Visiting Teachers.”

So, I decided to type

“Being a Visiting Teacher Is...” instead of “Doing Visiting Teaching Is...”


These would be great to handout out to your Relief Society sisters at the beginning of the month or at a Visiting Teaching activity.

To create your own UP2U Treats...
1. Print out my UP2U Gum Labels (link below)
2. Cut them out
3. Fold on the dotted/dashed lines
{the label will go around the pack of gum}
4. Tape/Glue the back of the printable (where the quote is) to the back of the pack of gum. You can also add a small piece of tape/glue onto the top of the pack of gum.
5. Fold over the top flap
6. Hand out to your YW or RS Sisters and Enjoy!
{I added a strip of Washi tape to the front to keep the front flap down. You can do this or not.}



I hope you enjoy my UP2U Gum Labels and use them for your YW or RS sisters.

Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting my blog.

Have a wonderful day!

{Sharing Time} We Believe in Being Honest.


IDENTIFY THE DOCTRINE(hearing a story and reciting a scripture): Tell a story about a child who tells another child about his fishing trip and greatly exaggerates the size of the fish he caught. Ask the children what the child did wrong and what he should have done. Invite the children to think of one of the Articles of Faith that would help them remember to tell the truth. Repeat together the beginning of the thirteenth article of faith (“We believe in being honest”).


ENCOURAGE APPLICATION(responding to situations): Present a situation in which the children may be tempted to be dishonest, such as when a parent asks who left toys on the floor. Invite the children to stand when they know what they could do to be honest. Have a few children share their answers. Repeat with different situations as time allows. Encourage the children to think, “We believe in being honest” when they are tempted to do otherwise.



Sharing Time Ideas from Little LDS Ideas

 I really liked the idea of the fishing story in this week's 'Identify the Doctrine'. I decided to 

use the story for a fun ‘fishing’ activity for the 'Encourage Application' part. Hope you like it!

For this idea you will need a fishing pole: a dowel, string, and a magnet.

Tie your string to the end of your dowel and then attach the magnet to the end of the string (this will be used as the hook).

Next, you will need to cut-out fish. You can cut some out of construction paper or find some fish clip art online and print and cut.

To follow the outline, have several different situations written on the back of each fish in which the children may be tempted to be dishonest.

Take turns inviting a child up to the front to go fishing. Once they have caught a fish have them read the situation on the back and have them tell you what they could do to be honest.

Continue fishing until all the fish have been caught or until time runs out.


Another Way to Play!

Split the Primary into 2 teams (children vs. teachers would be fun). Have your fish on the ground, but for this version you will have scenarios {good & bad} on the back of each fish. You will also have a certain amount of points. Good fish will receive points, but dishonest fish will get points taken away.


Have the children take turns fishing for fish. Have them read the scenarios on the back of the fish. If they catch a good fish award them the points on the fish. If they catch a dishonest fish then they will have that number of points taken away.


Continue playing until all the fish have been caught or time runs out.


One Last Way to Play!

For this idea the whole primary will be a team trying to reach a certain amount of points. The children always seem to love a good challenge. :)

 Have scenarios or situations on the back of each fish as well as a certain amount of points (2 points, 5 points, 10 points, etc.).


You will also need to have 3-4 ‘dishonest’ fish that have a short phrase like:


{Sharing Time} We Believe in Being Honest.


{You got ‘Caught’ being dishonest!}


When these fish are caught they must throw them back into the pile and lose a certain amount of points (10 points, 15 points, etc.). You could also share a short little scenario 'how' they were caught being dishonest and then have them share how they could right the wrong.


Have the children fish until they have reached their goal or until time runs out.

Do you like my 'You Got Caught' tags (shown above)? I created a printable that you could use to attach to your 'dishonest' fish.


A Few Ideas from The Friend

Here are a few more ideas that I found from previous ‘Friend’ magazines.


Place two large paper strips on the blackboard or wall. On one, print True; and on the other, Not True. Prepare one set of statements that are true and another set of statements that are not true. Example(s): Snow is white. Rain is wet. People need water to live. Salt is sweet. The sun is dark. Ice cream is hot. Arrange the chairs in the middle of the room with one less chair than there are children. Have the children march around the chairs as they sing “I Believe in Being Honest” (Children’s Songbook, page 149). When the music stops, have the child who does not have a chair choose one of the statements and place it under the True or Not True sign. Ask the children what truth is and what it means to be honest. Remind them that we believe in being honest (see A of F 1:13).


Prepare a list of situations such as: (a) David found a dollar bill on the floor at school. What should he do? (b) Mary was riding her sister’s bike and ran into a tree. Now the bike is broken. What should she do? (c) Anne wrote on the wall with a crayon. Her mother asked who did it? What should Anne say? (d) Jimmy ate all the cookies mother made for dinner. Mother asked who did it? What should Jimmy do? (e) Susan sees some girls teasing a younger child. What should she do? Clear a space in the middle of the room. Have the children sit on the floor. Pass a beanbag around while singing “I Believe in Being Honest” (Children’s Songbook, p. 149). When the music stops, have the child holding the beanbag suggest an honest way of dealing with one of the situations. Make a list of the situations for each child, and suggest that they play this game with their family.

I hope you enjoy my Sharing Time Ideas that I have shared today and are able to use them for your Primary. I would love to hear how your Sharing Time goes and any changes that you made.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an amazing day & a great Sharing Time!
