“Come, Follow Me” by Practicing Christian Love and Service

I have been recently called to teach the 4th Sunday, “Teaching for our Times”, lesson in Elders Quorum. Since I know that many of you have other callings and don’t get to attend Priesthood and Relief Society 3rd hour I will post my lessons so you can review them if you want. Normally I will have it posted before I give my lesson, but I am running a bit behind this month 😦

Here is a link to the full talk on LDS.org

Here is my slide show. Much of the information is in the notes section of each slide. If you don’t know how to view the notes, or are having  trouble, feel free to Contact Me.

Forgiveness – Relief Society

Have you deviated from the standards that you know will bring happiness? Is there a dark corner that needs to be cleaned out? Are you now doing things that you know are wrong? Do you fill your mind with unclean thoughts? When it is quiet and you can think clearly, does your conscience tell you to repent?

For your peace now and for everlasting happiness, please repent. Open your heart to the Lord and ask Him to help you. You will earn the blessing of forgiveness, peace, and the knowledge you have been purified and made whole. Find the courage to ask the Lord for strength to repent, now. I solemnly witness that Jesus Christ is the Redeemer. I know that He lives. I testify that He loves you personally and will help you.

“Finding Forgiveness” Richard G. Scott APRIL 1995

Relief Society Christmas Dinner

This event hosted by the Relief Society and opened up to the young women was a great success. It was reported that the food was delicious and the ambiance was delightful with the displayed artwork and many Nativity Scenes. The high point of the evening was the program. It had several moving musical pieces each accompanied by narration. It was very well attended.

Relief Society Activity

Well, I did not get any responses about what interests or would help you in this section. I will give a brief recap of an activity I participated in last month. There has been a concern recently that people don’t understand or are unable to use the tools available on LDS.org. In response, the Relief Society had an evening of Technology and Hot Cocoa. It started with Brother Sanders, the Sunday School President, going over how to use technology while teaching. He showed us how to use the TVs available, and how to hook things up to them. He showed us how to download movies and play them directly off external hard drives or thumb drives. Then Shelby Jorgensen, who teaches the Family History class 2nd hour, showed us how to log on to Family Tree and some of the many changes the church has made there. She ended by showing us several 3rd party programs/apps that work directly with Family Tree and make the work much easier. Then Sister Rosier, the Relief Society Secretary, gave us a brief introduction to all the apps the church has developed for phones and tablets. After a short break to dive into the Hot Cocoa bar – which had a lot of mints, caramels, cookies, and chocolate – I gave a presentation on the ward section of LDS.org. Much of it was the information that I have been giving you in the previous Tech-Talks, but I went a bit more in-depth on how to edit your profile in the Ward Directory and explained how to use the Donation, Ward Calendar, Lesson Schedule, and Newsletter sections. It was a great evening that hopefully helped some of the Sisters:)

Relief Society Presidency Message – December

As we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, may we be as the wise men of old that sought the Christ child and offered him precious gifts as we continuously seek Jesus Christ this month and give him our most precious gifts of love and service to those around us, for as we server others, we serve Him. The Savior declared, “I am the light of the world” may we follow Him as we remember Him always, emulate His example, and go about doing good, lighting the world with His love. Merry Christmas Love your Relief Society Presidency
