We also Talked about how we should appreciate other peoples talents, and how we can develop our own talents by learning from others.
Here was a cute Matt and Mandy Developing Talents Episode we shared in class.
When we use our talents we are promised blessings- we will have an increase in our talents, and be blessed.
I found this fun video on you tube and showed it to my group… Its about two missionaries that share their talents and the gospel. It teaches that all our talents that we have or are developing, that we must use them to build up the kingdom of God. To share our talents, to use our gifts to share the gospel and to bring people unto Christ.
We called the Primary Chorister to ask her if our Activities Day group could help her plan and teach a song to the Primary during singing time. She was so willing to participate.
(I posted it the WMP and the MP4 …but it is also available for you to download from the above link- look to the right side and you will find the link to download the ASL version-
I really like this version best.)
Now we plan to teach it to our Senior and Junior Primary group. It will be a lot of work but the girls seem to like a fun challenge. We will do this till they have their Primary Program later this year.
I hope you have fun with this-
Brenda submitted this handout that comes straight from the manual. 1 page, 8.5 x 11 inches, black and white.
This is a great worksheet to let each girl see how many talents she has. So often we hear “I don’t have any talents.” Not all talents are the same and many aren’t even thought of as talents when in reality there truly are. This worksheet helps the girls see theirs.
Hopefully, this will help them make some goals as to gifts they desire and see their worth when they recognize gifts they may have and not realize. I made this list up from D&C 46 and talks by Elder Robert D. Hales, Elder Marvin J. Ashton and Sister Julie B. Beck along with the manual. The highlighted gifts are those that are considered necessary for all to obtain in order…
This was an object lesson I used in my Young Womens Laurel class. I had our Stake Y.W. President who lives in our ward (but you could use the Bishop or someone else) step into class just after it had started. She had 3 gift bags. She gave one to me, one to the advisor and one to the Y.W. secretary, who I had asked to come sit in on…
We may start out as a neat individual (bare string) but for every trial we overcome (wax)(Everytime they say some trial the overcome or they overcame a fear they can dip their string into the wax making them a well rounded person with many talents! Then as they countinue to gather these talents and overcome these fear and obstacles that turn into talents they can let their light so shine!…
I’m sure everyone knows what this is. Yes, it is a ballpoint pen. What do you think the most important part of this pen is? Many of you said the “ink”, that is a common answer. Let’s see how useful this ballpoint pen is. I need someone to volunteer to write with this pen, and see if it works properly. Let several kids try to use the pen. They will…
Dr Adrian Rogers gave a Focus on the Family devotional and this story is from that devotional: A minister was giving a sermon that was several hours long. There was a small break for the audience to get up and walk around at bit. The minister knew many of the people in the audience and he went down to talk to some of the people at the front. He was…
Design the menu so that it would really be difficult eating with only one kind of utensil. The discussion during this meal would focus on talents. Everyone has different talents and gifts. All are valualable at one time or another and we should use and share our talents and acknowledge that they are valuable. A spoon may not seem too important but sometimes you need a spoon, and only a…
Have a volunteer come up and put his/her arm in a sling then stand there while you give the rest of the object lesson. Ask the group or volunteer: What would happen to your arm if you left it in this sling and didn’t use it for a year? Listen to all comments and weave them into the rest of your presentation. Here is the direct quote from President Gordon…
