1 Nephi 11-14, The Lamb Of God And The Giving Tree

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/09/19/1-nephi-11-14-the-lamb-of-god-and-the-giving-tree/ Today’s lesson was a continuation of the previous one, “1 Nephi 10-11, God’s Lamb is Given“. In that lesson the students seemed to really be interested in the SNellFour-Sacrificial Lamb-Savior principle, so I decided to continue with that pattern in today’s lesson while supplementing it with a lot of the other information that is found in […]

1 Nephi 10-11, God’S Lamb Is Given

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/09/19/1-nephi-10-11-gods-lamb-is-given/ In this lesson I introduced my sheep named SNellFour (CLICK HERE TO LEARN ABOUT SNellFour–2 Ne 11:4). I have 6 different sheep at the front of my classroom as part of my decor. They are each called SNellFour. My friend and colleague, Brother Todd Davis, introduced me to this concept over 10 years ago and I have […]

1 Nephi 8, God’S Tree Is Great!

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 probably shouldn’t be this way, but there are certain scripture blocks where I just think, “How do I even begin to do justice to this set of scripture?” I feel like I am putting bumper sticker on a Ferrari–it’s just not […]

1 Nephi 7, Family, Faith, Forgiveness

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/09/16/1-nephi-7-family-faith-forgiveness/ Because of pacing issues I was tempted to just summarize 1 Nephi 7 with story-line and move on to 1 Nephi 8 with the Tree of Life. But I had had a couple of other teachers (online friends) share their good experiences with 1 Nephi 7 and in an effort to fulfill the aim of […]

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 […]

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. I pointed out to those who hadn’t noticed yet that the Nike swooshes on the board created a face. I asked them, “Who do you think would be the ‘Just Do It!’ person in the Book […]

1 Nephi 1, Faithful And Favored

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/09/10/1-nephi-1-faithful-and-favored/ One of my favorite bumper stickers says, “Jesus loves you… But I’m His favorite!” I know it is just a bumper sticker, but I wish that everyone felt that way. I really do wish that everyone had the kind of relationship with the Lord that made them feel that they are His favorite. Indeed, He […]

Day 7, Witnesses And Testimony: From Eye-Witness To “I Witness”

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/09/09/day-7-witnesses-and-testimony-from-eye-witness-to-i-witness/ I dressed up in a judges robes (black graduation robes) for this lesson. The lesson material came from the tail end of LESSON 4: TITLE PAGE, INTRODUCTION, AND TESTIMONY OF WITNESSES and the first half of LESSON 5: OVERVIEW OF THE BOOK OF MORMON from the BOOK OF MORMON SEMINARY TEACHER MANUAL. This is again one of those lessons […]

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 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 […]
