EASTER: Creating a Christ-centered Celebration

It may seem strange to consider at first, but after pausing to ponder we come to realize that Christmas would be meaningless without Easter. As important as the divine and miraculous birth of Jesus Christ was (and still is), it would be in vain without His redemptive, atoning sacrifice that shattered the chains of death with a triumphant resurrection (To study […]

I had already taught the Title Page on Day 2, The Objective lesson. I had hoped to get through the testimonies of the witnesses today as well, but it did not happen. So I will have to […]

Day 5, The Plan Of Salvation

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/09/04/day-5-the-plan-of-salvation/ We had a great experience today as we learned about the G.P.S.–God’s Plan of Salvation!

This lesson was very simple, and yet very profound for many […]

Day 4, Studying The Scriptures

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/09/03/day-4-studying-the-scriptures/ This lesson was based on the resources found in the Book of Mormon Seminary Teacher Manual, Lesson 2: Studying the Scriptures and Section 2.3 of GOSPEL TEACHING AND LEARNING: A HANDBOOK FOR TEACHERS AND LEADERS IN SEMINARIES AND INSTITUTES OF RELIGION. I encourage you to use the online version of these manuals since they have more content than the […]

Personal Electronic Devices In Seminary: If Not Now, When?

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/09/02/personal-electronic-devices-in-seminary-if-not-now-when/ You can fight it, but in the end you know who is going to win. In my opinion, it is definitely time to consider how to help seminary students use their personal electronic devices (PEDs) appropriately in class when the Church keeps using these types of photos and including the following types of statements: Students […]
