Word Strips – “I Know that My Savior Loves Me”

I Know that My Savior Loves Me Word Strips-page-001

Someone posted this link on the primary chorister FB group about an idea on how to teach “I Know that my Savior Loves Me” from www.lds.org.

I made the word strips and decided to share them if anyone wants it.

Here is the word document for altering: I Know that My Savior Loves Me Word Strips

Here is a PDF of small font: I Know that My Savior Loves Me Word Strips

Here is a PDF of large font: I Know that My Savior Loves Me Word Strips LARGE

Follow the Prophet – Wiggle Song Cards!

I’ve been pondering on how I can teach all nine verses of “Follow the Prophet” song from the LDS Children Song Book which is the theme song for March 2015 in the current 2015 Sharing Time Manual: I Know My Savior Lives.

I guess it’s a new year resolution for me to learn all nine verses! I thought it would be fun to make it part of the weekly “wiggle song” choices so I made these “Follow the Prophet Wiggle Cards!”

It’s the same concept as what you would do with the song “Do as I’m Doing.” I made up actions that kinda associate to each prophet.

Hopefully it will help get all the wiggles out! 🙂

Enjoy!

2015 LDS Sharing Time Manual Songs

This is the CD that I made for our primary for 2015. These are ALL the songs in the 2015 Sharing Time Manual: I Know My Savior Lives. The CD includes the monthly songs, the songs that appear in the weekly sharing time lessons plus a couple that the primary presidency picked for the optional songs.  You can download the CD Cover and music in one .zip file here.

PS – It’s easier to email out a .zip file than burning CDs!!  I learned from experience. 🙂

LDS Reverent & Wiggle Songs List

I’m trying to figure out how to pick and teach reverent songs and wiggle songs.  I found a wiggle song list on SugarDoodle but I couldn’t find a reverent song list so I made one to match it.  I also colored this reverent boy picture from www.lds.org and took the primary girl graphic from Susan Fitch Design.

I am printing and laminating two copies. One for me and one for the primary pianist. Hopefully this will help us not have to scramble for song ideas on Sunday.

These songs are from the LDS Children Song Book.

A Gluten & Dairy Free Thanksgiving

A couple of months ago, I realized that I was feeling sick after eating dairy or gluten. It was after a long trial and error to figure out why I was feeling so sick. I’m still in the process of getting a diagnose but at least a feel a little bit better being off dairy and gluten. This may be another auto-immune disorder to add to my great list of auto-immune disorders.

Last month, my gluten free friend and I went to the Gluten Free Expo. It was a lot of fun. Here are some pictures.

So this Thanksgiving, my mother in law made me some gluten free stuffing… which is probably my favorite Thanksgiving dish. I’m super grateful because pretty much you can find anything in gluten free now-a-days… well… except for butter croissants. I’m still waiting for the day when I can eat those again. 🙂

I have a lot to be grateful for. My husband has been so kind during my journey of finding out what is wrong with me.

My kids are so funny. They make me laugh even on days when I don’t feel good. Being a parent makes you have to work even when you’re sick but it’s worth the sacrifice because of the joy I feel when I’m with my kids.

I’m grateful for my parents who have taken care of me during all my childhood health problems and for the great doctors I have.

I’m super duper grateful for the atonement of Jesus Christ. I mess up everyday but I’m soooooo grateful that I can try again and pray so God can forgive me. Seriously, it’s the greatest feeling ever to feel forgiven. I’ve notice I’ve been getting better at accessing the blessings of the atonement. I can tell that it doesn’t take me as long to ask for forgiveness.

Thanksgiving really is a nice time to spend with my family and think about all the things I’m grateful for.

What are you grateful for today?

St. Louis Temple Pictures

Back this March we went to visit Grandma in Illinois. We flew into St. Louis. This was the second time we visited Grandma. The last time was back in 2010 (see post here).

Here is a picture of the famous arch. When we were driving around the arch I received the idea to create the WordPress Ward which is finally a reality. The WordPress Ward recently was awarded Honorable mention at the 2014 LDS Tech Conference! This motivated me to find my St. Louis pictures because I remember distinctly that right next to the Gateway arch is where I received the inspiration from the Holy Ghost to create the WordPress Ward.

At the St. Louis Gateway Arch Visitor Center, we ran into a group of Sister Missionaries on their P day (Preparation Day). We had to take a picture with them! It was so random.

The arch is a monument to Thomas Jefferson and the pioneers who went west during the  Westward Expansion between 1830 and 1870.

The Mormon Pioneers were among the first people to trek across the terrain to find a place to safely practice religion because of persecution.

In 1847, Brigham Young lead the first group of pioneers to Utah where President Young declared that, “This is the right place”.  Salt Lake City is now where the headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The church membership is now 15 million and there are currently 141 operating temples.

This time when we were at the St. Louis Temple it was closed for cleaning but I decided to take pictures anyways! 🙂

I’m so grateful for the pioneers who suffered much to get to Salt Lake City! Their example and sacrifice is a blessing to us all. The church has been blessed because of the great faith of the Mormon Pioneers.

 

Happy Halloween!!
