I Believe That the Priesthood Blesses My Life
We believe that a man must be called of God, by prophecy, and by the laying on of hands by those who are in authority, to preach the Gospel and administer in the ordinances thereof (A of F 1:5).
Tetsuko lived by a high mountain in Japan. She was going to school for the first time. Excited, she dressed quickly in her new school uniform. Then she began to feel sick, and she didn’t feel like eating breakfast.
Okasan (Mother) asked, “Do you feel sick, Tetsuko?”
“Yes. My stomach hurts, and I don’t think I will be able to go to school today.” She started to cry.

Place a lightbulb in a glass of water so the metal base is submersed and place in the Microwave. Turn on. The light bulb won't turn on. Remove the glass and place salt in the water. Place in microwave again and turn on. This time the bulb will light up.
Our good example makes it possible for the light of christ to shine throughout the earth.
Light - Light of Christ
Salt - People are the salt of the earth ~ our good example or our faith.
Microwave - Earth
Miracles happen by faith.
Salt = faith
Light = Miracle.

Following is Seminary Mom's scripture mastery game idea:
1. I cut out circles of paper using the base of a small glass for tracing a well-rounded circle (not that a perfect circle really matters).
2. I wrote the historical setting on each individual circle for twelve of the scripture masteries I wanted to focus on for the day. (I found the historical setting on the front of the scripture mastery cards given the students. On another day, I might write the doctrinal teaching or missionary application, etc.)
3. I placed the circles in the muffin tin with the writing all "face up". (As we played the game, we turned over the papers "face down" once that scripture had been done.)
(Probably obvious, but I prepared all this before class :0)

Today we reviewed four chapters in Alma - chapters 27 through 30. To start off, we read the chapter heading for Alma 27. Then the students divided into teams of two. They shared with one another something meaningful they had found in that chapter or a reason why they thought Mormon went to the bother of including these verses.

Last Sunday, we attended our nephew's Eagle Scout Court of Honor. It was, without a doubt, a very special night.
I've always admired Eagle Scouts. From the days of my youth, when Ryan Alley and others of my classmates earned their Eagles, I was always very proud of them and impressed by them (and perhaps crushed on them a little too.) As I grew older, and earned my Young Women in Excellence Medallion, I became more impressed that these boys accomplished their feat at such a young age. I had worked very hard on my projects, I knew how much planning and commitment when into each of them. Though I often wished I could be done with it between ages 14 and 16, (Like they can now, lucky ducks!) I don't think I actually could have. Thus my admiration grew.
