While members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will be using the new "Come, Follow Me" manual for Sunday lessons, they will also continue to study talks given by church leaders in general conference in 2018. Trina Boice focuses on those talks as the basis for her "Ready Resource for Relief Society and Melchizedek Priesthood: 2019 Curriculum."
The introduction outlines the different types of resources that may be used for teaching a lesson, including elements like music, quotes and artwork. She shares websites where these types of helps can be found, as well as where to find articles and videos about teaching with the spirit in general.
For example, Lesson 3 is "Gospel Study in the Home." Boice lists applicable music and discusses the home-centered gospel teaching focus that President Russell M. Nelson presented in the October 2018 general conference. She follows with quotes from various other church leaders, titles and numbers of pictures in the Gospel Art Kit, videos that are available on lds.org, and three object lessons to choose from based on the type of group a person may be teaching.1 comment on this story
The lesson ends with a challenge to listen to an episode of the Gospel Principles podcast (available on iTunes), and then have a family scripture chase based on scriptures included.
Boice's book is a great reference for not only Latter-day Saint teachers, but for anyone who wants to take learning at home to a higher level in the coming year, whether teaching their own children, leading discussions among single adult groups, or simply enriching personal study.
Boice is the author of more than 23 books and teaches international students at Brigham Young University. She lives in Las Vegas and has four sons.
