Revelation 1-7 Study Guide

I made this handout to help out in my teaching of Revelation chapters 1-7.  I’m hoping it will help answer student questions that may come up.  This handout is geared for teenagers, and all the sources are LDS. ——————– Revelation 1 Revelation 1:13 – One like unto the Son of Man This is Christ. The Book of Revelation Made Easier by David J. Ridges says this phrase was used to…

James and 1 Peter

James 1-2 I decided to split James into two themes: on the first day, I focused on the scripture masteries, and on the second, we did a review type lesson.  This worked pretty well. We spent a few minutes doing our scripture sort.  Then I gave an introduction to James, based on at least some of the reading. I kept feeling that I needed to leave out an account of his…

Doers of the Word To Do List

I used this To Do List with the idea from the Seminary Lesson manual when teaching about the doers of the word.  After reading James 1:22-25, students were given several minutes to look over James 1-5 and to write down ways they can be doers of the word. The quote is from For the Strength of Youth (2012 version).

Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ appeared to Joseph Smith.

Primary Talks

Fourteen-year-old Joseph Smith was worried about religion. He didn’t know which church to join. One day he read in the Bible, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, … and it shall be given him” (James 1:5). Joseph decided he would do as the scripture said and ask God which church was the right one to join. He went to a grove of trees near his…

Mormon ‘idol’ being crowned

Mormon ‘idol’ being crowned – Late last summer, after David Archuleta and Brooke White made it to the finals of the 2008 “American Idol” competition, Bob Wood began to wonder just how many other singers raised in the LDS culture had that kind of talent … [Deseret News LDS Feed] This sounds nice to me. I wish we had better ways of getting information out appropriately to LDS people about…
