This video describes a lot of scriptural symbolism and uses videos from several places to teach about the Annunciation of Mary.  I'd use this with older groups, like Seminary or adult Come Follow Me classes. Please note, this isn't a video […]

Rationalization and Excuses Leave You Empty

I've posted both the full lesson and the object lesson part here in case Seminary Mom's (rather long) lesson doesn't fit with the message you're trying to get across in your lesson: The Object Lesson I brought out a muffin tray with muffin liners, but no actual muffins inside the liners.

As a prelude to the lesson, I began by calling a student volunteer to the front of the room. As it happened, it turned out to be the tallest student in the class. I asked him to show how high he could reach. He went over to the wall and rested his verrry long arm […]

Life is a Journey- Not an Obstacle!

This lesson is different than any 'obstacle course' object lesson, but it has a great point. Often times in life, we place obstacles in our way that really don't need to be there.
