Obedience Through Our Faithfulness by L Tom Perry

Shared by Amy R.: Elder L. Tom Perry passed away today.  He has been on my mind, so I decided to do a Primary SHARING TIME about his talk entitled, “Obedience Through Our Faithfulness” from April General Conference 2014.  He uses the analogy of a harnessed horse being led by gentle tugs from the driver as a metaphor for how the Lord gentle guides us with His spirit.  When we…

Parley’s visit to the Lamanites

By Barb Gardner Barb Gardner : #DandC32 Here is the map that shows Parley’s journey to the Lamanites. Note how it follows the Ohio.

1 Nephi 2-5, For Obedience Strive!

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/09/11/1-nephi-2-5-for-obedience-strive/ I began by asking the students what the Nike slogan was. “JUST DO IT!” of course was the response.

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/05/08/1-3-peter-the-gospel-truth-is-gnot-a-secret/ I had the title song for “Mission Impossible” (an appropriate version) playing in the background as student entered class. It would be fun to dress in a way that fits the lesson, but I did not have that much forethought… There were TOP SECRET folders on each desk when the students came in (Except for […]

James 1-2, “Doers” Just Do!

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/04/30/james-1-2-doers-just-do/ This lesson goes really well this April’s Come Follow Me curriculum on the Restoration. We started off with some background on who James was (see Bible Dictionary, third entry under James and James, Epistle of) so that we could establish some “street cred” and determine the importance his writings may have.

Spring Break Or Spring Keep: Is Easter Your Hol-”I”-Day Or Hol-”Y”-Day?

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/03/27/spring-break-or-spring-keep-is-easter-your-hol-i-day-or-hol-y-day/ Today I helped my friend, Brother Day (Seminary Teacher’s Blog) with a couple classes. We discussed the importance of Easter and how to honor the Savior during the Easter Season. Unfortunately, many people use their vacation time around the Easter season in ways that dishonors the Living Christ. The term we use to describe that […]

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/03/09/romans-13-how-to-stay-out-of-trouble-3-ls/ ELDER DALLIN H. OAKS:  “The love of God does not supersede His laws and His commandments, and the effect of God’s laws and commandments does not diminish the purpose and effect of His love…. If anyone thinks that godly or parental love for an individual grants the loved one license to disobey the law, he or she does not understand either love or law.”

Acts 27-28, Oh, The Places You’ll Go! Stick to the Ship of Zion

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/02/15/acts-27-28-stick-to-the-ship-of-zion/ Stick to the ship of Zion. If boats come to the side, showing beautiful colors and making wonderful promises, do not get off the ship to go to the shore on any other boat; but keep on the ship.
