The Ready Resource for Relief Society 2014 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Author Trina Boice has compiled an extensive and in depth resource guide for leaders, teachers and individuals who are studying the 2014 Relief Society/Priesthood manual Teachings of Presidents of the Church Joseph Fielding Smith. This manual will save the teacher so much time by offering suggestions for songs, artwork, General Authority talks/quotes, videos, handouts and so much. Each of the suggestions are conviently layed out to coordinate with each lesson. Each selection offers many choices and are not prepared lesson. There are handouts included that have quotes that work great on cardstock paper. The teacher will find exciting resources that will strengthen the lesson in a way that each member of the class will find to be of great benefit. I had never used a manual like this before in preparing classes. As Relief Society President I found the choices to make my personal study more Spiritual and this overflowed into the classroom. I used this manual to chose the songs for the class. I loved that there were many songs to chose from but I did not have to do the research for them. I like choices and do not like to have a prepared lesson so this was great for my needs As a former Seminary Teacher, I know the value of good object lessons. I always try to implement them into my teachings, I found the object lessons in this manual to be well thought out and easy to adapt into the lesson. They work so well with the official church manual for the year. There are so many resources for each lesson that there is no way to use them all but they will enrich the teacher none the less because she will be armed with knowledge. This will no doubt strengthen the Spirit in the classroom. I found that it enriched my personal study to a higher level even before the lesson ever was taught in the classroom. The manual offers quotes that add Spiritual and up-to-date information from General Authorities. I highly recommend this book to any adult Latter Day Saint who wants more power from the lesson manual with less work. I shared the manual with my first counselor and she could not believe the handouts. She loved the manual as well. My husband is Elders Quorum Leader and he was impressed most with the quotes and video suggestions. I loved this manual and will be using it all year. I found that I was spending more time with the manual while
