Display many books, including the scriptures (recipe book, schoolbook, library book, other Church books, etc.). Have the children discuss why each book is important and what each one teaches us. Discuss what makes the scriptures similar to and different from other books.

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)

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.
