At the Ohio lesson
D&C 38:32 and 88: 119 the promised to endow the saints with power from on high and gave them commandments.

They were to then build a edible temple out of marshmallows, graham crackers and frosting

Dispensation of the Fullness of Times
By Shauna Doctrine and Covenants Section 27 This idea came from a member of the LDS Seminary Teacher Facebook group (seriously, if you are a Seminary Teacher-join that Facebook group).

When referring my class to ‘dispensations of time’, I grab several hymn books and lay them out end to end to make a timeline and say, this one is Adam, this one is Noah etc. Then I stack them on top of each other. Voila, ‘The Dispensation of the Fulness of Times’- Mark M.More Info

Diamonds in the Rough
Invitations were hand delivered in a simple black envelope, tied with black ribbon. Each name was written in metallic silver on the front of the envelope.
The Relief Society room was transformed into our Young Women's Diamond Boutique
Décor included: black and white table coverings and drapes, black tulle, topiaries, lighting, large acrylic crystals, and a simple vase filled with faux beautiful soft pink roses (which were given to our new and incoming Beehives during the program).
The Young Women Medallion was displayed on a black velvet neck display. And the new Personal Progress booklet, Strength of Youth pamphlet and Guidebook for Parents and Leaders of Youth, each received a "bling, bling makeover", using clear rhinestone stickers. the YW values were also displayed.
My daughter's dress form was transformed into our daughter of a king, complete with a few of the large acrylic crystals around the neck and a sparkly "Diamonds in the Rough" sash, which I made using a piece of black scrap material and felt letters stickers I found at a local fabric store (simple, yet adorable!).
Along with the bling was a large piece of coal, a simple rock we found at the lake recently, spray painted black.
Brie sang her first solo in public. She and one of our beehives sang "Daughter of a King", by Jenny Phillips. They each sang a verse on their own and sang the chorus together. Brie was so nervous, but she did wonderful.
After the program, the Young Women were directed to the back of the room. There they found two tables which were set-up with supplies for each of them to make their own "Be Strong and of Good Courage" tiles - because that was the mutual theme for 2010. (supplies: 4x4 tiles, prepared vinyl lettering, and Pampered Chef scrapers)
We served up Chocolate Mousse Parfaits with Brownies and Caramel Sauce, Amy's creation.
