Sunday School Lessons
We had a wonderful ward conference in the 28th ward today. Bishop Olsen and his wife spoke as well as Pres Hunter. Then we went to Sunday School to study the creation as found in the book of Moses. Finally we presented the lesson in Young Women. They only had 2 girls there but they were great. They even stayed after the lesson for about 10 minutes and talked with us about school classes and the change to their credits to graduate. When I came home Brad had dinner ready-ginger sesame chicken, baked yams, and peas and carrots-YUM! I didn't get a nap after dinner because we had a fireside to go to. Coach Knight from IF was the speaker. Our theme this year is taken from Joshua 1:9 "...be strong and of good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest." He taught them how to be strong, both physically and spiritually. That we need to practice the things that bring spiritual strength. He challenged us to make a sacrifice of something that doesn't invite the spirit and replace it with something good that does bring the Holy Spirit into our life. I have a few ideas but haven't decided what to do for sure. I'm giving myself a week to think about it and then commit. I'll let you know what it is.
