I started blogging about LDS lesson helps when I was teaching in Relief Society. I kept losing my additional articles (or some little hands were helping them disappear) so finally I decided to put the links on my blog- a place they definitely could be found again. Soon after, I saw the great need we as teachers have to learn and grow from each other. As teachers we sometimes get so focus on what our class needs to learn that we forget to fill ourselves with what we need. My goal is to help you fill yourself so you can continue to help uplift others.
I'm a Mom to 5 great kids living in Colorado. We like to have fun together playing Legos, going on tours, and making excuses to have a party. They inspire me to do and be better everyday. My kids are why I expanded my lesson helps into Primary. I've taught Relief Society, Young Women's, Primary, and Nursery. I love getting to know my class and especially the subject more as I teach. Currently, I teach Valiant 8.
One week in Young Women's I completely forgot it was my turn to teach! We had just come back from vacation and it was the last thing on my mind. It was an All Girls lesson too! The great thing about belonging to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is that we have the gift of the Holy Ghost. It turned out to be a great lesson because I was able to teach with the Spirit. A well planned lesson and great teaching techniques certainly help but teaching by the Spirit is the way that we will actually connect and help those in our class best...including ourselves.
