Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/09/17/1-nephi-8-gods-tree-is-great/ This is one of those lessons that I have a love-hate relationship with.

I’m not sure if it’s because Jesus owns Satan so soundly or if it’s that I feel like the temptations give an insight into the personality of the Savior… whatever it is, I always like this topic. There are a lot of JST footnotes in Matthew 4 that need to be…
Living Righteously Amid PressuresMy first thought on this lesson was to use the example of diamonds. How because of the pressure they’re exposed to they become beautiful things. And I think this would be a fun way to go with this lesson.But as I was go…
Bake 2 batches of cookies or other simple treat. Make one batch 1/2 the size individually to the other. Before you start the lesson give each class member a small cookie (ideally on a napkin) and tell them not to eat it yet. The other batch is kept well hidden.
