There has been a lot of "he said" on this blog for a while and I've been wanting to do "she said" but as I'm sure many of you understand, I felt like I didn't have anything to blog about. Well, the biggest thing in my life right now is Seminary, so I'll talk about that.
We are studying the Book of Mormon this year, which may be one of my favorite things to teach. About a week ago I gave this object lesson:
I brought in a large paper grocery bag, put it on the table and said to the kids, "I'm going to tell you something that may or may not be true. Inside this bag is a gun. It's an old pistol and it has 3 notches on the handle. How many believe me?"
Amazingly, one boy raised his hand. Then I asked a girl to come up, look in the bag, and describe what she saw. You should have seen her face when she looked in and saw Grandpa's old pistol! So she told everyone.
I asked again, "Now how many believe me?" This time everyone but one raised their hands. Then I talked about the Law of Witnesses and how the Lord uses it all the time, from baptisms to weddings, to the Restoration itself and how important it was to help people believe. (I also took the gun out of the bag and showed it and told about it. Lloyd said if it had been school rather than Seminary at church I would have been arrested.) Hopefully, they'll remember that lesson.
