SUGARDOODLE is excited to be teaming up with GOOD INSPIRATION to bring you Come Follow Me lesson kits.
We are excited to once again be helping leaders, teachers, and parents by shining a light on good ideas and information.
WHAT WE LOVE ABOUT THIS KIT. . .
We really love the fresh and unique ideas that we put into this lesson. With its bright and fun printables, it will be hard for your audience to forget the doctrine. The boy pictured “feasting” on his scriptures, is just a sticky idea and is hard to forget!
Happy to share this kit with you…feel free to multiply the JOY by sharing it with family, friends, and other teachers and leaders.
I CANNOT believe that 2019 is right around the corner!
I am absolutely giddy to share these AWESOME SAUCE printables with you! This year, I wanted to give you even more value, so I am offering MORE FREE PRINTABLES than ever before! My goal in creating these printables is to simplify your life and your calling. You will most likely not have a need for every printable I offer, but my hope is that something here will resonate with you and can help fill the printable / logistical side of your calling, so that you can focus on the ministering side of your calling.
I have also included in the downloads some tips and tricks to downloading, editing and printing your files. Please let me know in the comments if you have additional questions with any of these downloads.
These Main Theme designs can be used as a poster or as handouts. They can also be used as Binder Covers if you prefer to have a more generic look to your binders.
Yes, I know. Binders are out. Digital is in. But guess what? I’m a binder gal. And I’m guessing some of you are too. So if any of you or your teachers are kindred spirits with me, than you will want these Binder Covers, along with all of the goodness that I have added to go inside the binders. First up, Letterhead. You can use this to write a letter to your teachers, outlining procedures and expectations. When I have been a Primary Teacher, this was SO valuable to help me know what our goal was as a primary, and little things that I should be in the know on.
Next is a substitute list. Need I say more? Subs? Lifesavers? Same thing.
And last, I have included a Lesson Outline. SOOO nice when last minute subs are called in.
All of these items are editable in Adobe Reader! Yay!

I LOVE these little extra printables. But my favorite FAVORITE would have to be the “Welcome to Primary” postcard. Guys. Listen. Want to make the kiddos in your primary feel so SO cool and special? Send them something in the mail! Seriously. Kids LOVE it! My boys go bananas in pajamas when something comes for them. This is also an awesome way to get the word out about upcoming time changes, and to prepare kids for who their new teachers will be.
The presidency contact card would go awesome in the front cover of your binders, or to give to your teachers when meeting with them for the first time.

Now that church is only 2 hours, and opening / closing exercises limited to 5 minutes, I really wanted to create a way to highlight kids, as well as send out pertinent information. I made this newsletter to fit that need. There are 2 options here. One is already filled out with headers, as well as information boxes for Opening / Closing exercises. Oh, and the study outline. Yeah, it’s awesome. But if it’s not your jam, than I have this blank one for you that you can edit yourself to your hearts desire. Both of these are editable in Adobe Reader.

Well friends, I truly hope you find value here, and that these printables can be of help to you. Make sure to check out our Etsy shop in the coming days for EVEN MORE (I know, can you believe it?), including Assignment Cards and Wristbands, Bulletin Board Decor, Door Signs and SO MUCH MORE!
It’s that time of year again, and I have some AWESOME printables to share with you for this year’s primary theme, “I am a child of God.”
I designed these printables with a colorful moon and stars theme. The inspiration came from my 5 year old son. This summer my hubby and I took our family on a late night venture to the mountains. My 5 year old was absolutely blown away by the moon and all of the stars. He kept saying how the moon and stars just made him feel so special, and that Heavenly Father had to have made them just for him. As I was trying to figure out what design to do for this year’s theme of I am a child of God, his words just kept coming back to me, and I knew that I needed to incorporate the moon and stars into the design.
I have some FREE printables available for you to use as needed in your primaries this year. First is this Main Theme Poster. It comes in 7 different sizes, with JPG and PDF files (PDF for printing at home or a printing center, JPG for printing at a photo center. Sizes include 3×5, 4×6, 5×7, 8×10, 11×14, 16×20 and 20×30.
These Binder Covers are just what you need to help emphasize the theme this year! These Binder Covers come with all Presidency and class names with A and B options included. Need to combine classes? No problem! Just use the EDITABLE Binder Cover and edit the class name using Adobe Reader (or you can write it in).
I also have LOADS of additional printables to help you in Primary this year. These are available in the Sugardoodle Etsy shop.
Here is the BUNDLED PACKAGE! This package includes most of the printables that are available and is the best value! Items in this package include a Bulletin Board Package, Birthday and Gift Package, Classroom Door Signs, Classroom Door Hangers, Monthly Theme Posters, and Sharing Time Assignment Wristbands and Cards.
One of my favorite items are these Sharing Time Assignment Wristbands! When I was primary secretary, one thing that was SUPER time consuming was filling in the Weekly Theme for talks and such. So I decided to help make life easier for you by having the Weekly Theme already filled out for you! We also have Sharing Time Assignment Cards available as well.
I also have created TWO more designs to go along with the “I am a child of God” theme. I decided to stick with the nature theme. I designed another “Moon and Stars” theme, as well as a “Sun” inspired theme. Both of these designs can be found in the Sugardoodle Shop.
My name’s Alex Balinski. Melanie’s been super nice to provide me this opportunity to tell you a little bit about a free family history service I recently started called Lifey.
Here’s a run down of everything you should know about Lifey.
What Is A “Lifey”?
So, to start off, let me define what a Lifey is. A Lifey is like a selfie about your life. It’s your life story in video format. It’s like a browsable, shareable video journal that you can embed anywhere online. I personally believe Lifeys are the best way to share your life story.
Currently there are two types of Lifeys we can create for you (they’re both free): Individual Lifeys and Family Lifeys.
Individual Lifeys are easy to prepare for and to record. They usually take 1-3 hours to record, though we’ve had some individuals create Lifeys that are 4+ hours long. The beauty of creating a Lifey, is that it’s free (it’d normally cost hundreds to thousands of dollars to pay someone to create a similar video autobiography), it’s long form (1-7 hours long) and it’s browsable (viewers can jump to whichever story/topic interests them).
Family Lifey Example
Below is an example of a family Lifey. Family Lifeys only take about an hour to record (depending on how many people are in your family).
Instead of a one-time comprehensive Lifey about someone’s life, a family Lifey is more like an ongoing family video journal where once a year you can take your family on a date to the studio and each take 5-10 minutes in front of the camera to share highlights from the previous year.
How Lifey Got Started
The story of how Lifey started goes back to the summer of 2006. I was attending my first term at Brigham Young University and I felt strongly like I should look into Broadcast Journalism. I attended BYU for two years, served a two-year mission in Argentina, and then finished my Bachelor’s degree at BYU. While studying journalism I felt impressed to create the Prepare to Serve project where we video interview returned missionaries about their missions, etc.
Then about one year ago I felt inspired to shift my focus to working on Lifey.
Why Record A Lifey?
I believe there is huge value in opening up, and sharing our ideas with each other. I believe every person has experiences and insights that they can share, that can be helpful to others.
Hands down the most prized family history possession I have is my Mother’s Lifey. I’m so grateful that we took a few hours to record my Mom’s Lifey. For many years to come my Mother will still be able to influence, and teach my children values, principles and testimony from her life experiences, because we recorded her Lifey. While reading a journal is good, nothing quite beats hearing and seeing my Mother share her stories in her own words. When I watch my Mom’s Lifey, it feels like she’s having a heart-to-heart conversation with me.
More Info About Lifey
We currently offer free video life histories at our office in Provo, Utah (if you live outside of Utah, and would like me to consider traveling to your state to offer free Lifeys in your state for a few days, please email me at email@example.com).
Our service is completely free (you can leave a donation if you’d like).
A Lifey typically takes 2-4 hours to record, though we’ve had some Lifeys last longer.
Lifeys are recorded in front of a green screen (which works great, as long as you don’t wear a green top).
Lifeys are self-directed. When you come in, I’ll welcome you to the studio and get the camera, microphone and lights all working, and then I’ll press record, shut the door, and let you share however much you’d like to share from your life.
We encourage people to let their Lifeys be public, so their stories and insights are easily accessible for family and friends.
Lifeys are recorded in 4K.
Lifeys can be organized into however many stories/topics as you’d like (we once had an older gentleman come in and share 99 different stories/insights from his life).
Lifeys can also be used to organize any other YouTube videos (home videos, etc.)
If You’re Interested…
If you’d like me to create a Lifey for you or a loved one, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’d like to learn more about the Lifey project, you might enjoy watching the videos on the Lifey About page.
I hope you have a wonderful summer! The Gospel’s true!
I wanted to share with you this BEAUTIFUL printable that I have created for the January Come Follow Me lesson, “Why is Jesus Christ important in my life?”. I made this printable last year, but decided to update it will the testimonies from 2016 October General Conference. And decided to give it to all of you for FREE! Download it here.
Out of all of the printables that I have created for the Come Follow Me curriculum, this printable had the strongest spiritual impact on me personally. It has been so humbling to read the simple but profound testimonies of the leaders of His church. It has brought a sense of purpose, direction and peace in my life as I have read and re-read these testimonies, and I hope you and the young women you teach can have a similar experience.
