March Topic Coloring Pages

I created these with a heavy heart as I said goodbye to two in my immediate circle on this Earth just within days of one another.
My grandfather, a true cowboy, the one that was serious but knew the perfect moment to insert something funny and one of the kindest, hardworking souls to grace this earth.
An adopted grandma who always spoiled my kids rotten with goodies and a few babysitting nights.
 I am grateful for eternal families and I know that I will see them both again. Our adopted grandma, our dear friends, I'm sure will be close by even without a sealing binding us together.

Cut and Paste Activity: Heavenly Father Loves Me

I love Elder Holland's quote that is found in the manual this week: "The first great truth of all eternity is that God loves us with all of His heart, might, mind, and strength."

Included in this activity is the color background and then the cut-out snowflakes to glue onto the background.

This activity is geared more towards Sunbeam age children.

Miracles of Jesus Notebook Stickers

I am so excited to be finally able to release these! I've been working on them for longer than I care to admit but I love them so much. I made these to fit the study notebook in the "truths about Jesus" box but I'm sure you can use them in anything that you are studying with. I used this sheet as a reference.

Each sticker has the "title" or what happened and then all the references in the Gospels for that particular miracle. It's perfect for those visual learners in quickly remembering where the miracles were and be able to cross reference them quickly. There are 42 stickers in all.
Included is both one with the fun outlines or without so you can decide how to cut them out. I printed mine on matte sticker paper but I think I want to try with gloss sticker paper so that the ink sits on top and is more "bright and shiny".

Study Guide: Jesus Christ was Tempted

I am so grateful to be on this journey with you, as I have taken the opportunity to delve deeper into the New Testament, I stand amazed at the lessons and teachings of this beautiful book and the opportunities to learn from its sacred pages many years after its writing.
I am grateful for the Spirit that testifies to me of the truthfulness of principles and doctrines of this text.
In my preparations for this week's postings, I hadn't anticipated preparing a study guide for this topic, but my mind wouldn't stray from it. I have learned much from these verses of Jesus Christ being tempted.

I wanted to just take a moment to share one of my own personal thoughts during my studies.  
(Again, these are my own thoughts and impressions, these are NOT statements from the Church.)

I think of us and when we are in the temple we have the opportunity to be "with God". I'm am amazed by this, Jesus went away from the world to commune and be with God, to be taught by God. We can do this too by attending the temple. Just as we must return from temple so must Jesus. 
Temptation is an essential part of the Plan of Salvation in this probationary state and Jesus was subjected to the same laws and trials that we are. Satan tempted Jesus Christ to test His divinity, to prove it. What would have happened if Jesus didn't know of His divinity? 
If Jesus had turned the stones to bread, it would have shown doubt in His mind of His own divinity. This is a TOOL of Satan's, if he can attack and get us to doubt our own divinity, He can quickly make us doubt our purpose and question our choices.

February Scripture Pocket Pals

Hello all! So after a month of using the New Testament Interactive Board, I've decided to change up the format a little for 2 reasons. 1) My family has rarely used the board, sad but true. It was just more convenient to talk about the lessons while we were driving, eating dinner, etc and the beautiful board just sat. 2) I wanted to make it easier to cut out, it took so long to cut out all the pieces and I wanted something faster so without further adieu...
I'm calling these Scripture Pocket Pals because they fit easily in pockets of diaper bags, church bags, in the cubby of the van, etc. My kids LOVE THEM! We've played matching games, finding games, dart games, and racing games it's been so much fun as we learn about the People, Places, and the Study Questions from the manual.

So what you'll need for these beautiful additions? A 3-inch punch. ( I really like this one, it doesn't snag as much as others I've tried.)

I apologize for the delay in their posting, I thought I had planned it out all spaced nicely but apparently not. I'll try and get March's out a lot sooner. Again, most of the information on the cards come from the Bible Dictionary. I did use a little bit of Jesus the Christ for some of the apostles' information.

Any feedback? What's working for you? What can I add to these fun cards? Send me a message on Facebook!
