I am SO EXCITED to introduce you to something Lisa and I have been working on for WEEKS! Since the announcement was made earlier this Fall regarding 3rd hour lessons shifting from manuals to talks/topics and council meetings in the new Come Follow Me Format - we hit the drawing board to come up with a CUTE (and creative) solution. THEN... add that to the DOZENS (and dozens) of emails I get from long-time customers of other faiths wanting lesson kits for their churches - and a brilliant plan was born... BLANK/EDITABLE Sunday Lesson Kits!
This means... any class, any auxiliary, any age, any topic, any talk, any manual, any church/faith - now has as collection of fun, colorful kits at your fingertips! We are launching with 3 kits and will add 3 new ones each month. Each kit will have both a PDF and Word Doc to make editing and adding your own text a BREEZE! A sheet of instructions/tips is included + we tested this with our less-than-computer-savvy mom... AND EVEN SHE COULD DO IT!!
... and yes - each kit includes blank handout tags, quote templates AND blank nugget wrappers!
You're welcome! ;)
Each kit will include the following: 5 full page posters (great for your key topics and main points), a square poster and strips (great for asking a question; answers on strips), 2 handout tags (4x3 rectangle and 2" round), Quote Templates (8x10 & 4x6) + blank nugget wrappers (great for putting scripture references on to pass out)!
Overall, they are very similar to our RS Lesson Kits - just blank!
Also included (or available separately as a freebie for everyone) is my Lesson Planner!
I've been teaching for YEARS - it's something I have a knack for, it's something I absolutely love and I'm so grateful it comes very naturally to me. I'm not a preacher - I'm not a reader... instead, I love to generate meaningful discussion, ask thought provoking questions and most of all look for ways to make the topic applicable to every day life. I want my class to leave uplifted and motivated to think more about the topic and how they can use it in their lives. I use the spirit as my guide, but it does take signification preparation to get ready... so I dug deep into my little brain and created on paper how I study, ponder my thoughts, organize ideas and create a flow to my lesson that ultimately becomes a discussion.
Each section of the planning pages match up nicely with the pieces of our Lesson Kits to help guide you for what text to put on your templates - or it can be used by itself to simply plan out your lesson.
A few tips on editing...
A NOTE TO MY LDS FRIENDS... The Lord is raising the bar on us! We need to teach better by the Spirit and rely less on manuals and outlines - and the "exact" words of others (like reading a talk or the majority of a lesson word for word). We need to better learn and KNOW the doctrine of the gospel so we can teach it to others, especially our families! This change is a chance to truly hone in and develop not only a better, stronger testimony - but translate that into teaching more like the Savior. This new format is an opportunity to rise to the occasion and is surely a sign of the times we live. A final thought... these kits are well suited for any lesson or class, YW/RS - even Primary, Youth Sunday School and Gospel Doctrine. They can even be incorporated into your Council Meetings to illustrate goals, topics, questions, actions, etc. Good luck in the New Year! ♥
