These are the sixth and seventh parts of a book I made for my daughter’s 12th birthday. You can also see Part One (Introduction and About the book), Part Two (Faith), Part Three (Divine Nature), Part Four (Individual Worth), and Part 5 (Knowledge).
Choice and Accountability
Choice and Accountability 1
In this layout, I included a story told by Shane M. Bowen – it is actually a Native American fable about a fight in each of us between two wolves. One is evil, the other good. Which wolf will win? The one you feed. I got this idea on how to draw the wolf here.
Here, I told one of my favorite stories of repentance in the scriptures: the woman who washed the feet of the Savior. This includes the parable that Christ taught–of the creditor and debtors. This is one of my favorite stories of the entire scriptures because of the tender display of love and gratitude made by the woman. She truly understands that Christ is her Savior. Her washing of the Savior’s feet is also very indicative of how we all feel when we truly repent: overcome in gratitude and love for our Redeemer.
Good Works 1
In this layout, I wanted to teach Tiger that performing good works is actually a part of her baptismal covenant, as we learn in Mosiah 18:7-10. Here is the list I included:
- Desire to come into the fold of God and be called His people
- Be willing to bear one another’s burdens, that they may be light
- be willing to mourn with those that mourn
- be willing to comfort those that stand in need of comfort
- stand as a witness of God
- serve God
- keep the commandments
The Lord expects us to bring forth good works.
Good Works 2
This quote comes from Elder Bednar. And the picture, I can’t really take credit for it. I drew it, but I pretty much copied the idea from something I found on Pinterest. Typically, I’d link to the inspiration here, but I can’t find it right now…
To go along with the theme of good works, I decided to create a list of things that Tiger can do to serve others. Fun!
Tithes and Offerings
This is a layout about tithes and offerings. Here, I wrote a pretty personal story to Tiger – how paying my tithing helped me to feel at peace even when I totaled my car a few weeks before Christmas. Stay straight with the Lord!!!
That’s it for now. Thanks for checking out the book. Tiger loves it. Next post will be about integrity. Have you been working on a book for you children, or similar? Let me know it is going!
