Personal Evaluation on the Basics

So, my awesomely cool friend Kristen gave me this link to a woman's blog and said "You're gonna love her, her scripture journals are amazing!"

The kid was not kidding!! A woman named Shannon has a blog called and she is a seminary teacher in Bountiful Utah.  I could not stop reading all of her suggestions and ideas to teach not only myself, but the youth and most importantly my daughter.

She did a post about the Church Board of Education giving the CES teachers a list of basic doctrines that all youth should know and have a foundation of knowledge about in the gospel.  I cannot tell you how as I read this list, I was like, yeah this makes complete and total sense.  Her list goes as follows:

The Godhead – God the Father, Jesus Christ, the Holy Ghost

The Plan of Salvation – Premortal Life, Mortal Life, Life After Death

Creation and the Fall

Atonement of Jesus Christ

Marriage and Family

Dispensation, Apostasy, and the Restoration


Priesthood – Aaronic and Melchizedek

The First Principles and Ordinances – Faith, Repentance, Baptism

Ordinances and Covenants


THEN, this awesome lady is putting together study guides on each topic to evaluate yourself, your children and a study guide to do with your husband.  IT SO AWESOME I COULD SCREAM!!!
What I love most about her background is that she is very visual and that is somewhere that I lack.  Children love visual aids and so I pulled some pictures she had done about prayer and made my own picture about the Godhead for Shae and I think she finally gets that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ are not the same person.  Hooray!  Why did I not think of a picture.  Because I am lame!!! Shae loves the pictures and I love the redheaded hostess!  I am a huge fan and thought that you too should know about her awesomeness!  Later on, I will share my own scripture journal experiences that she has taught me!
Here is her link if you would like to go and check her out!
