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 I figure out who it was, I will edit and post his name so he receives credit for this brilliant visual for teaching “Dispensations” and “Dispensation of the Fullness of Times” using hymn books.

Object Lesson

Children absorb what we teach

Object Lesson

See how easily this stalk of celery took on the color of water in which it was sitting? Small children are just like that stalk of celery.
