MeckMom’s Teaching Tips: Easy Individual Worth & Repentance Object Lesson

Repentance can be a tricky subject when teaching teens. Often our attempts to teach the commandments can lead to feelings of guilt and inadequacy. Teaching kids to see themselves the way their Father in Heaven sees them can really help them understand their worth – regardless of where they are in the repentance process.

Here’s a quick video that demonstrates one of my favorite easy object lessons for teaching Individual Worth.

FREE 2017 Primary Printables: Choose the Right

Primary2017-BlogListing-01Hi friends,
Are we ready for this?!! 2017 curriculum has been announced and we have the printables READY for you!  I had such a great time making this kit for the primary theme, “Choose the Right.”   As I was in the starting phases of this kit, one of my favorite quotes from Elder Stevenson kept coming to my mind.  In his 2009 address, he said, “You are never lost when you can see the temple.”  I love that quote and knew that I wanted it portrayed in this printable kit.  When we come upon a choice to be made, if we are choosing to look towards the temple we truly will never be lost.  I hope you enjoy these printables as much as I enjoyed making them!

August Visiting Teaching Kit

August 2016VT slider box_SD
As I thought this week about how our words influence the love and nurturing that occurs in our homes, I was struck by the similarities to raspberries– they can be tart or they can be sweet!  This epiphany was the catalyst for this month’s message, which is full of raspberries and, of course, Sweet Tarts!

And let me just say a word about the recipe for this month–these Raspberry ‘Sweet’ Rolls are A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!  I am a huge believer in easy roll recipes, so I got creative and combined a couple of my recipes for the dough and the fillings and this raspberry-cream-cheese-fluffy-dough beauty was born!  Using instant yeast it took me about an hour and half from start to finish– and if you know anything about sweet/cinnamon roll recipes, this is incredibly fast!  I hope you give it a try!

Enjoy the BONUS “missed you” door hangers for those sisters that just seem to be on vacation all summer long. ;)
