This lesson was pretty simple to teach. However, as I am always looking for a little doctrine or scripture to back up every lesson, I modified it a little bit – using a quote from this talk by Elder Uchtdorf as the main point of reference.
You can find the lesson plan here.
Like some of the other “family” lessons we’ve had, I found that this lesson really seems geared more towards parents than youth. I wanted to be sure that the youth felt that it was important for them to have an active role in their families now. I wanted them to see that they really do play a part in enjoyable activities. So, I spent a little bit of time discussing the points from Elder Uchtdorf’s talk from the point of view of the youth. I think that it helped them stay focused on the lesson.
In general, the lesson went well. They young women like sharing stories about their family’s experiences.
