1 Nephi 5-6 And 9, Scripture Study Is Divine!

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/09/12/1-nephi-5-6-and-9-scripture-study-is-divine/ Brass Plates, Gold Plates, and more plates… Is it really that important to understand the structure of the Book of Mormon? Yup, I think so! It demonstrates the miracle of the Book of Mormon, including its structure and prophecies concerning the various plates. I really love teaching these chapters and the principles connected to them. The resources […]

Day 6, The Introduction To The Book Of Mormon

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/09/05/day-6-the-introduction-to-the-book-of-mormon/ Today’s lesson comes from LESSON 4: TITLE PAGE, INTRODUCTION, AND TESTIMONY OF WITNESSES of the BOOK OF MORMON SEMINARY TEACHER MANUAL. 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 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 […]

Day 2, The Objective

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/08/28/day-2-the-objective/ On day 2 we focused on understanding the objectives of the Book of Mormon and Seminary. I have found that when students understand the reason for something they are much more willing to “buy into” it. This lesson also introduces them to the process of “likening”-type thinking. We began by having the students pair and […]

Day 1, The Book Of Mormon Will Change Your Life!

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/08/27/day-1-the-book-of-mormon-will-change-your-life/ I asked the students to fill in the following blank with the word that they feel best fits: “THE BOOK OF MORMON WILL ________ YOUR LIFE.” (Ezra Taft Benson, “To the “Youth of the Noble Birthright,” Ensign, May 1996). They gave great responses (Guide, Bless, Improve, etc.) I then had them describe why they feel that word […]

2 Timothy 1-4, Perilous Problems And Scripture Solutions

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/04/22/2-timothy-1-4-perilous-problems-and-scripture-solutions/ In small groups, students began by creating a list of common sins in our society. We listed a few on the board and compared our list to Paul’s list in 2 Timothy 3:1-5. Just as President Packer illustrated in a talk he gave, we were able to see that Paul’s list is a perfect “checklist” […]

March Daily Scripture Study Madness

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/03/19/march-daily-scripture-study-madness/ This activity is meant to help encourage DAILY SCRIPTURE STUDY. Elder Dallin H. Oaks said, “There are few things that a teacher can do that would have a more powerful, long-range effect upon their students’ lives than teaching them the importance of studying the scriptures, giving them that experience, letting them taste the fruit of daily scripture […]
