Editor’s note: Mormon Times is highlighting two new books on President Lorenzo Snow, the fifth president of the LDS Church, whose teachings will be the topic of study in Relief Society and Melchizedek priesthood quorums in 2013.
"THE READY RESOURCE FOR RELIEF SOCIETY: Teachings of Presidents of the Church — Lorenzo Snow," by Trina Boice, Cedar Fort, $12.99, 146 pages (nf)
Trina Boice has created a masterpiece about LDS Church President Lorenzo Snow.
"The Ready Resource for Relief Society: Teachings of Presidents of the Church — Lorenzo Snow," is a one-stop search reference for anything you could possibly need to assist with teaching a lesson in Rel.
Included in the book that is designed to go hand-in-hand with the "Teachings of Presidents of Church — Lorenzo Snow" are hymn suggestions, church art photo suggestions with the reference numbers included, quotes from LDS Church leaders including the prophets, object lessons, even printouts that are designed to be handout reminders.
There are suggestions for videos to be viewed, church magazine articles that tie in with the topic, messages on LDS.org and more. There are also suggestions with contact information for possible Relief Society service projects.
Not only is this book the ultimate in lesson help, but it is a excellent resource for personal study.
The book is a spiritually uplifting and enjoyable read in addition to being a wonderful trove of information.
For a Relief Society leader or teacher, it will be an excellent reference.
