It looks great, but alas I’m no where near a mormon bookshop. Hinckley, the fifteenth president of the church, counseled in the Priesthood Session of Conference: “When you are young, do not get involved in steady dating.Luckily, they’ve included a lot of their book content on their blog. When you reach an age where you think of marriage, then is the time to become so involved.But you boys who are in high school don’t need this, and neither do the girls” (Ensign, Nov. The First Presidency has said, “Avoid going on frequent dates with the same person” (For the Strength of Youth, 25). We’re not going to do anything bad.” I’m going to use a set of magnets as the ‘parable’ object lesson and challenge the girls to let the magnets get close but not touch. “For intelligence cleaveth unto intelligence; wisdom receiveth wisdom; truth embraceth truth; virtue loveth virtue; light cleaveth unto light; mercy hath compassion on mercy and claimeth her own; justice continueth its course and claimeth its own.” I’ll have the girls list the attributes they want in their husband. They’ll each have a set a small magnets to play with to think about this concept of being the person you want. (we’ll just leave out the part about opposites and polarity here unless we say boys and girls are opposites then it works) 2) Attraction strengthens the closer you become.I’m going to use that as an example of the ‘law of attraction’ in two ways: 1) Like attracts like. That’s why you don’t steady date until you’re ready for marriage.I’ll be using a really strong magnet and a piece of steel for this.
Being single in a huge city like Vancouver isn’t always easy, but we’ve come up with a formula that gets results.
Meet up to 25 eligible singles and see if you find a compatible love match.
I gave them the handout and quizzed them on each step. So I try to look for ‘parables’ that will stick with the girls to help them remember important things from the lesson.
Instead of trying to offer them everything I can (quotes, scriptures, stories, handouts, treats, videos, pictures, etc) to fill the time, I’m now only going to focus on one message for most of the lesson and instead encourage discussion.
I learned a great lesson a few weeks ago: Have one strong message that takes most of the lesson and they’ll remember it. The girls enjoyed the game and can you believe the next week they still new all 5 steps to scripture study? And hopefully my counselors and I should be able to answer the questions using the Spirit, the lesson manual and the scriptures.
This was discovered during the lesson on scripture study. My favorite teaching method is how the Savior used parables to demonstrate a concept.
