All of us deal with adversity. Often we struggle to understand why a loving Heavenly Father would cause us such grief and why his timing is often so unfortunate. Teaching youth and adults the benefits of adversity can really help strengthen their testimonies and teach them to see the good in the struggle. I use this simple object lesson to help my classes understand the purposes of adversity in our daily life.

Love at first sight. That is what I felt when I found this cool generational family chart by Loni Harris of Cactus & Olive. It’s cool. It’s hip. It’s something I would display in my home and I think you may like it too! It is currently unavailable, but I am crossing my fingers that given some new interest, she will once again have them available.
I know when we think of this quote, missionaries come to mind. But then, I also know that we are all missionaries as we look for ways to love and serve the people around us in different ways. This last Sunday, our family hosted our first Neighborhood Family Get Together. Not as a ward activity, but just as neighbors. Of course we invited everyone in our ward boundary. Eating yummy cookies, catching up with old friends and getting to know new, was a wonderful way to spend a couple of early evening hours and a definite do again each month… and together was a pretty good place to be. This quote will be added to the Sugardoodle shop here first thing in the morning.
The scriptures are always the best tool to teach kids the gospel – but they can be intimidating for kids to use. When my kids were little I really wanted to help them connect with their scriptures (without spending a ton) so I created these cool, transparent scripture stickers based on the Gospel Art Kit found on LDS.org.
Here’s a quick video explaining why I created them and how they’ve made a difference in my family’s scripture study.
You can add them to your kids scriptures by following these four easy steps – I made it Pinterest friendly so go ahead, pin your heart out! 🙂
This year, I completely revamped the original stickers I created back in 2008. I included tons of new pictures from each of the four books of scripture (140 stickers total) and added all the the references and page numbers right on the sheet. I also formatted them to fit perfectly on my favorite peel-n-stick sticker paper so you could skip all the cropping time. They’re so much easier to use now. Here’s a pic of me putting the new set on my son’s scrips while I was waiting to pickup kids in my car. Multi-tasking moms unite. 😉
Our Called to Serve Banner in classic black is perfect for celebrating your Missionary going out or coming back. Looks great hanging over the treat table, where the crowds gather… This week we offer it to you as a FREE printable from our Sugardoodle Shop. Download it and tuck it away for when you will need it. You can find it here.
Thank you! Brenda
