At the Ohio lesson

In December 1830 the Saints were commanded to move to Ohio(see D&C 37:3), and in January 1831 they were 

promised that they would be “endowed with power from on high” if they would obey (D&C 38:32).

Those who gathered in Ohio were greatly blessed. Continuous revelations led the Saints to deeper understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ. In addition, they received the blessings that came from building a temple and preaching the gospel. While the Church grew in numbers and spiritual strength in Ohio, severe opposition also increased against the Church and its leaders. 

The Prophet Joseph Smith lived in Kirtland from January 1831 to January 1838.

Explain that in January 1831, the Prophet Joseph Smith and his wife,Emma, as well as Sidney Rigdon and Edward Partridge, left New York for Ohio. Most of the New York Saints followed during the next five months.


I made up four Mini-lessons- and had them rotate from station to station

The Law of the Church

Sir Isaac Newton is well known for his three laws of motion. The first law of motion, the law of inertia, states that objects at rest will remain at rest, and objects in motion will remain in motion, unless acted on by an outside force. Inertia, a resistance to change, depends on both mass and friction. In this activity you will observe the inertia of a penny at rest.
I found this activity online…they had to put the index card on the cup with a penny on top of the card. Then flip the 
card out having the penny fall into the cup. 
Using their scriptures and journals answer some questions about the Law of the Church (D&C 42)

D&C 38:32 and 88: 119 the promised to endow the saints with power from on high and gave them commandments.
I had a Kirkland Ohio Temple fact sheet for them to read and questions for them to answer
They were to then build a edible temple out of marshmallows, graham crackers and frosting

D&C 42: 6-7 the Lord gave them commandments about missionary work
Once the Kirtland Temple had been dedicated and the keys for the gathering of Israel had been restored, members of the 

Church began to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ in more places.

Using their scriptures: Map 3 in the Church History Maps section (“The New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio Area of the USA”).
 they found that:
Kirtland was an ideal location to begin to send missionaries throughout the world. Kirtland was near several main routes of transportation in the United States. From Kirtland, missionaries only had to travel short distances to access steamboats on

America’s major rivers and Lake Erie. They also had access to a national road system to the south and a canal system to the north. Because of this,Kirtland was the point of departure for missions to Canada, other parts of the United States, and Great Britain.

Because of missionary work during this time, the membership of the Church throughout the world increased by thousands.In 1837, 
Elders Heber C. Kimball and Orson Hyde were called along with five others on a mission to Great Britain, where they baptized around 2,000 people. By 1838, when the Saints left Kirtland because of persecution, there were about 2,000 members of the Church living in
Kirtland and nearly 18,000 worldwide

Mini-lesson 4—Other Significant Revelations and Events       

Read D&C 42:61

Joseph Smith arrived in Ohio, the Lord told him that he would “receive revelation upon revelation” if he would ask God.

-Turn to the chronological order of contents of the Doctrine and Covenants (located after the introduction).

Determine the location where most of the revelations recorded in the Doctrine and Covenants were received. 

Locate D&C 76; 89; 107; 137. Read the section introduction and skim the section summary located before the first verse.

In your journal write why each of these sections is significant.

Using home study manual and pre-assignments with D&C 38

By Debbie D. Duran Debbie D. Duran : I taught #DandC38:1-16 today, and I thought it came together nicely.

When they arrived I noted which verses those who prepared had to call upon while teaching….

Pizza Parts

By Stefani Lindsey Meyer Stefani Lindsey Meyer : Today I taught #dandc38 lesson 43. The manual suggests explaining how the different parts of a house or building each serves a needed purpose (to illustrate, that each person in a ward or family serve a vital role). I chose, instead, to use parts of a pizza (crust, sauce, cheese, pepperoni etc.). I cut colored paper to represent these items. We constructed…
