alt We had a  lesson last week in YW's about patriarchal blessings and our MiaMaid Advisor taught it. She brought an empty laundry basket and started the lesson with all the girls putting both shoes into the basket and then one by one with eyes closed had them pull out two shoes to wear for the rest of the lesson time. It was awesome. All the girls had different shoes, some that didn't fit, some had two lefts or two rights, sandals with pumps, heels on one and flat on the other. It was such a great way to start the lesson. That patriarchal blessings are unique to each of us. Just like the shoes that didn't fit, you understand that your blessing is just for you and it "fits" just you. It was a great way to start it out and the girls loved it.

STORIES:

alt Gordon B. Hinckley's Patriarchal Blessing - The year Gordon turned eleven, he received his patriarchal blessing. Despite his health problems and small size, he was told, in part, “Thou shalt grow to the full stature of manhood and shall become a mighty and valiant leader in the midst of Israel. . . . The nations of the earth shall hear thy voice and be brought to a knowledge of the truth.” At the time, he thought that meant he would be a missionary. (Lynda Cory Robinson, Boys Who Became Prophets, [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book, 1998], p. 90.)
