Book of Mormon Camp! Fifth Sunday Idea!

In my church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I am asked to oversee the kids ages 3-11 in an organization called Primary. Usually, as teachers, we have a lesson manual that we use to teach every Sunday except on fifth Sunday. Some people like to use this Sunday to catch up on missed lessons, do a focus lesson, or just have fun! We are the last option. We just w...

Pac Man Primary!

This year in Primary, the yearly theme is "I Know the Scriptures Are True" and unfortunately I already did a pirate theme last year, which would have been perfect with the whole "the scriptures are a treasure" thing. Instead, we decided to do a video game themed primary! We went Pac Man! It took a while to iron out all the ideas and how everything was going to work. In fact, I'...

Aargh! Shiver my Scriptures!

This last year - in 2015 - we did a Treasure Hunt theme in Primary and since there is a lot of this same thing floating around on Pinterest, I thought I would share what we did. I drew mainly from this idea by Trina Brough I found on Sugardoodle. It was great and fit just what I needed! I printed off her maps she's made which take you through each section of the Book of Mormon ...

Doctrine and Covenants 51:17!

I was pushing the Lord to get us out and he kept pushing back. I wasn't willing to accept it and he was patient. My honey and I had been praying. We were fasting. I was a wreck! Then, we went to church and a ...

Ponderize Isaiah 1:18!

Lately I have been thinking of snow. We got our first real snowfall really late this year and the whole topic of snow has consumed me. So, when I read Isaiah 1:18, I knew it'd be a good scripture to work on for the week. It's also a good reminder as to the power of repentance and what the Savior has done for me. Even if I fall into sin, my Savior can help me return to a pure ...

Ponderize This! Galatians 6:9-10

This last week, I worked on thinking and focusing on Alma 26:22. It is a great scripture that talks about repentance and faith. This week, I have been working through the Good Works section of the personal progress booklet. In one of the requirements, it says that one of the listed scriptures needed to be memorized. Perfect for ponderizing! So, I made this super simple printa...
