Great Changes for 2019! And FREE Presidents of the Church Sharing Time Kit!

I hope everybody watched General Conference! It was amazing. President Nelson once again proved to us all that he is God’s prophet for these times. He introduced a new 2-hour schedule (YAY!) for Sundays, and he asked us to stop using nicknames, and start using the correct name of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We can do that.

We were also asked to have a 10-day “fast” from social media, so I’m using Facebook for business only, as in: I’ll post this blog but not the stuff I usually do, like how I don’t like certain events and points of view. I thought I’d have withdrawal symptoms, but so far, none have appeared.

FREE! Plan of Salvation Kit!

I think for a lot of children, visuals are the best way to explain concepts. I believe that’s definitely true of the plan of salvation. How many times have you seen someone draw one of those charts on a chalkboard? A lot.

Revised General Conference Activity Book: FREE Download!

Just in time for General Conference, I have a revised version of the General Conference Activity Book featuring President Russell M. Nelson available for FREE! I remember being a youngster and being totally bored by watching conference on TV. In southern California where I lived at the time, it was shown on a network station, which was fortunate because it was before cable. I would have welcomed some activities to help me engage with what was going on. I did like the Mormon Tabernacle Choir music, though.

FREE! Downloads to Help Teach Songs for the Children’s Program!

My favorite parts of the Children’s Program are the beautiful songs we get to sing. I’ve been in Primary for about 40 years off and on – mostly on. I don’t know when I participated in my first sacrament meeting presentation, but I don’t remember having them early on when I first started teaching. What I remember is teaching 18 – yes, eighteen! – three-year-olds with an assistant as my first calling in 1974. Fortunately I’m the oldest of 12, so getting little kids to behave is part of my DNA. I “taught,” while the assistant grabbed children and put them back in their seats, over and over. Since Nursery was started, Sunbeam teachers have a MUCH easier time of it, make no mistake. Also, team teaching is great!

This week, I have posted two downloads with visual aids to help teach the program songs. Using a picture with each phrase is my favorite method for teaching new songs, and after being called as a chorister multiple times, I’ve found it to be very effective. I also use many other methods, especially for review.
