In 2 weeks I will be teaching a lesson on work and I might have you share it next time.
Class member: I have a daughter that is almost 7 and likes to do things for herself and not anyone else. I thought it would be nice for her to do service for someone else. She said I don’t want to waste my time and money on someone else. We pull out our Thanksgiving tablecloth and watched the clip on Mormon Messages about the 2 boys that put the money in the guys shoes. Starting earlier in the season it’s had more time to sink in for her. Starting earlier worked better for her.
A FHE lesson and pulling a tradition out early…we don’t realize the impact we have.
Class member: This week my daughter went to a party and wanted to take a treat. She made cookies. She doubled the recipe, but didn’t double the flour. She was distraught. We told her she worked really hard. My other kids jumped in and helped her understand that what she did was good. She fixed the cookie dough and went on. Someone else made a mistake, but she stepped in and told them that they did a good job in gratitude for the service that they had given her.
I did a lesson and gave everyone a homework assignment. I had 3 people share. I brought out this giant warm chocolate cake and cut 3 large pieces. I didn’t share any of the rest of it with everyone else. You can't change if you don't 'try' something.
Class member: I heard this quote, “What if everything was taken away except for those things you told God that you were thankful for?”
