build a foundation to withstand lifes pressures

Object Lesson

First have them write what pressures they deal with in life on the brick. Then they write things they have to help them cope on the legos(prayer, scriptures, temple etc…) Use the legos to build a foundation. Explain that the eggs are like their souls. Put one egg in the foundation and the other in the dish. Then apply the “pressures” or the brick to each. The one in the foundation withstands it. The one, cracks and breaks. I used this quote ahead of time from Thomas S. Monson “Mortality is a period of testing, a time to prove ourselves worthy to return to the presence of our Heavenly Father. In order for us to be tested, we must face challenges and difficulties. These can BREAK us, and the surface of our souls may CRACK and crumble—that is, if our fFOUDNATIONS of faith, our testimonies of truth are not deeply embedded within us. We can rely on the faith and testimony of others only so long. Eventually we must have our own strong and deeply placed FOUDNATION, or we will be unable to withstand the storms of life, which will come.”
