This is a good lesson this week, and I think it will be a fun thing to talk about. It will be fun to listen to everyone’s perspectives on the topics. Since I read my lesson last week I just couldn’t get boxes out of my head, weird I know. But it has now all come together. I am going to talk about not boxing others out of our lives, and not boxing ourselves in. I want the girls to learn to go outside of their comfortable boxes and try to expand themselves and grow themselves, while sharing their talents with others. I want to let them know that when they choose to box themselves in that at the same time they are boxing others out.
For my handout I went to the dollar store, and over in their wedding section they had these perfect little boxes. You can get a pack of 8 for $1.00, what a total bargain. Then I bought the Treasures candy to go inside. I topped it off with my handout which reads:
“Don’t box yourself in and others out. Open your hearts and share your ‘treasures’ with others. “For all have not every gift given unto them, for there are many gifts, and to every man is given a gift by the Spirit of God” D&C 46:11.
Please take a minute and visit my friend Wendy’s adoption blog. They are trying to adopting their 2nd baby and it would mean a lot if you would check it out and pass it on to anyone you know! Wendy, Spencer & Roman
