why do we need the book of mormon handout
Each of the activities below can help the young women learn about the importance of the Book of Mormon. Following the guidance of the Spirit, select one or more that will work best in your class:
Invite the young women to name things that create power, such as batteries, generators, windmills, and solar panels. Invite the young women to make a list of ways the Book of Mormon brings power into our lives. Ask the young women to search President Thomas S. MonsonБs talk Б,Б looking for insights they could add to their list. Provide time for the young women to ponder how they will incorporate President MonsonБs challenge to read the Book of Mormon daily. Ask them to share their ideas. Invite the young women to pick their favorite story from Elder LeGrand R. Curtis Jr. Бs talk Б Б to illustrate in a short comic strip. What is there about these stories that inspires them? Why is it important to share the Book of Mormon with our loved ones? Individually or as a group, brainstorm ways to share the Book of Mormon.
Invite the young women to write their testimonies in a copy of the Book of Mormon that they will share. Invite the young women to search Elder Gary E. StevensonБs talk Б Б or Elder Kevin W. PearsonБs talk Б,Б looking for insights about the Book of Mormon and why it is so important. You could invite the young women to share some quotes from the talks or favorite scriptures in the Book of Mormon. You could also encourage them to write down and share their testimonies of the Book of Mormon. Invite the young women to search the scriptures suggested in this outline and the title page of the Book of Mormon to find answers to the question БWhy do we need the Book of Mormon? Б Share your testimony of the Book of Mormon. Invite the young women to share how they gained their testimonies. Ask the young women why the phrase БAnother Testament of Jesus ChristБ is a good subtitle for the Book of Mormon. Invite them to share a scripture from the Book of Mormon that teaches or testifies of Christ (such as ; ; ).
How have their testimonies been strengthened by the Book of Mormon? б Invite the young women to share a scripture in the Book of Mormon that has influenced them or helped them overcome a challenge (or share a scripture that is meaningful to you). Why is it meaningful to them? What experiences can they share about how the scripture influenced them? What do these experiences teach us about the importance of the Book of Mormon? Ask the young women to share what they learned today. Do they understand the importance of the Book of Mormon? What feelings or impressions do they have? Do they have any additional questions? Would it be helpful to spend more time on this doctrine? PREPARE YOURSELF SPIRITUALLY - Consider your feelings about the Book of Mormon. How has it brought you closer to Jesus Christ? How did you gain your testimony of the Book of Mormon? How has this knowledge helped you in your life?
Think of the young women in your class. What experiences have they had with the Book of Mormon? How will a testimony of its truth bring strength to them in their teen years and in their future? - - - - - - - - - - - - I took a Doves chocolate candy and held it up and asked what made Doves different or unique from the other chocolates. They said inside the wrapper is a message. I asked how do you know that, and they said when the unwrap them the see and read the message. I explained it is the same with our scriptures, first we have to pick them up, open them and then "feast" upon the message inside. I gave the quote, "You have to open the scriptures, in order to feast upon it's words". I attached it with a dove chocolate on the card.
