I will continually seek opportunities for learning and growth.

"And as all have not faith, seek ye diligently and teach one another words of wisdom; yea, seek ye out of the best books words of wisdom; seek learning, even by study and also by faith." (D&C 88:118)

GENERAL AUTHORITY MATCHING: -  - I did this before General Conferences.  I went to the Library and found pictures of the Quorum of the Twelve and First Presidency.  On the back there is information re: their lives, education, hobbies, etc.  I played a game with the girls where I'd show them a picture and give them information about the person....for instance "This person was from my home town (the girls knew where I was from), he taught seminary, he loves birds, he was called to be a general authority at the age of ___ (I can't remember
the answer here).  And so on.  Then they'd have to tell me who it was. (Boyd K. Packer). You'd be surprised at how many faces they did not know, but by the end of the hour they could tell me almost all of them.  We had a lot of fun and used had some interesting ways of remembering names, like this man's name is something we do not drink (Maxwell House Coffee-Neal A. Maxwell) and This person's name is the opposite of how Andrea feels about Violin (which he loved too) David B. Haight) and this man kind of looks like a famous popcorn man (Marvin J. Ashton) and this man will be the next President (at the time it was President Hinckley).  You can tell how long ago I was an advisor :-} I tried to use things that meant something to the girls so they'd remember. The next General Conference we'd do it again and they'd be so excited that
they knew who the apostles were and I just keep adding things to the list of what they could learn about that person.

HANDOUT IDEA: -  -Here is a cute hand out we recently gave our girls to introduce Knowlege as the value for the month. We explained to them that worldy knowledge is  important (math , science ) but Gospel knowledge is even more important. And what a better way to gain Gospel knowledge than through scripture study. So we gave them a little hand out that had a girl reading a book (from dj inkers) and it said
"Daily scripture study is lots of fun.
Especially while chewing bubble gum!
Just read along as you chew,
When the flavor is gone, your reading is through!"
Then we attached a piece of bubble gum to the handout. We thought this would be a good way to get them started at least!   Carla
