Please excuse the slightly irreverent cartoon. I came across it on BCC, when they posted about following General Conference through various social media – including twitter and facebook. I thought it might be a fun way to get our girls’ attention to begin Manual 1 Lesson 3: Following the Example of Jesus Christ.
I plan to follow the lesson manual fairly closely, while also using Holy Handout’s writing prompt and quote. I also love the Christlike Attribute Activity found on page 126 of Preach My Gospel.
I plan to encourage the girls to either review or begin the Divine Nature value experience #7 (by sending a reminder through facebook – see, it’s not mutually exclusive!):
Learn the definition of the word peacemaker. Then find and read five scriptures that teach about peacemakers. Become an example of a peacemaker in your home and at school as you refrain from criticizing, complaining, or speaking unkindly to or about others. Pray each morning and evening to Heavenly Father for help to do this. After two weeks write in your journal what new habits you want to develop, how being a peacemaker is part of your divine nature, and how you will continue to be a peacemaker.
My husband and I had a good laugh over that. I’m sure the girls would love it.
