Understanding Grace Justification and Sanctification

  Understanding Grace, Justification, and Sanctification   Justification and sanctification are at the center of God’s gracious plan of salvation and are the essence of our witness of the Lord Jesus Christ. While justification and sanctification may be viewed as distinct topics, in reality I believe they are elements of a single divine process that qualifies us to live in the presence of God the Father and Jesus Christ. Justification…

Valentine’s Day Scripture Chase

So we wanted to come up with a fun way to do a scripture chase.  We found scriptures that fit with a Valentines theme… So we thought conversational hearts was super cute– the girls worked together to match up the hearts to the scriptures and find the answers.

We divided up the girls into 2 groups to race with each other   They received the scripture reference  then they had to read it out loud, run to the candy bowl, pick out the conversational heart that it best matched with, run back to the group and read the next scripture.

The first team to complete this game won a sticker- I am sure we could have found something better- but stickers are fun!

Afterwards we went into the kitchen to decorate cupcakes with hearts and candy sprinkles.

These girls are super fun!!

Here is the list of Scriptures we used- but you may have to find the scriptures that best match your hearts:
John 3:16

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.—

34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.—

21 And now as I said concerning faith—faith is not to have a perfect knowledge of things; therefore if ye have faith ye hope for things which are not seen, which are true.—

4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.—

18 Yea, blessed is this people who are willing to bear my name; for in my name shall they be called; and they are mine.—-”BE MINE”

 36 And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.

 37 And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.—

30 And Elijah said unto all the people, Come near unto me. And all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the altar of the Lord that was broken down.—

30 And it came to pass that the angel spake unto me again, saying: Look!  And I looked, and I beheld the heavens open again, and I saw angels descending upon the children of men; and they did minister unto them.—

7 Ask, and it shall be given unto you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.—

31 And ye my flock, the flock of my pasture, are men, and I am your God, saith the Lord God.—
2 And it came to pass that he spake unto me, saying: Behold I have dreamed a dream, in the which the Lord hath commanded me that thou and thy brethren shall return to Jerusalem.—

2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being ofone accord, of one mind.—

The Prophet Joseph Loved Children by Clark Kelley Price

3 Nephi 9:22; Moroni 8:17 Wherefore, all children are alike unto me; wherefore, I love little children with a perfect love. Moroni 8:17 Joseph Smith tried to keep all of Heavenly Father’s commandments. He wanted to be kind to everyone, especially children. Joseph knew that Jesus Christ wants all His disciples to have the faith and humility of little children (see 3 Nephi 9:22). Joseph taught the people about God’s…
