As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the “Mormons”), a Gospel Doctrine Sunday School and Early-Morning Seminary teacher, I have had the privilege to study and teach from the scriptures.
In preparing for the lessons I teach, I have used this blog as a place to organize my thoughts and lesson plans. You are welcome to use my writing in your own study and teaching, realizing it is my own private work, unless otherwise stated, and NOT scripture.
I encourage you to study your scriptures deeply and not just for Sunday School discussion. Study for personal education, edification and direction. Prayer and the Holy Spirit are your best tools for unlocking the scriptures to your mind. In addition, as you already know, there’s wonderful commentary available to augment your study of the gospel, if you have time and inclination. Some of the on-line resources are listed in the blogroll on this site.
I enjoy creating my lesson notes here for many reasons. First, it’s an easy way to organize and store my notes. Second, I feel as if I’m addressing a class when posting my notes and this makes for a more dynamic set of notes–almost interactive. Third, these posts help me “think” the scriptures in a way that I might not otherwise achieve simply through private reading and pondering.
Please share your comments and suggestions with me on how this site might be improved to better serve its purpose.
It is my sincere hope that this blog will nourish our spirits, friendships and most importantly, our testimonies of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His divine mission. नमस्ते Namasta.
