Terrific Tuesday Details

Good Morning Ladies!!

Here we are - Terrific Tuesday Week!  Hope you all are as excited to join us tomorrow as we are to have you!  Here are just a few little details so that everything can run smoothly:

Start time: 5:00pm
Crafts will be going until 6:30  (If this changed time frame is going to be a problem for you, PLEASE let us know and we will do our best to be accommodating!)
Dinner will be served at 6:30
the "dinner program" (while you are still eating) will be Holiday Fun - Jody has some great info to share with us all, come prepared to be inspired!
Pie Crust Class:  7:30 - followed by the Pie Filling are welcome to attend either or both of these classes, or to just hang out and visit

For a few of the classes there are some supplies that it would be VERY helpful for you to bring (if you don't hopefully you sit by someone nice who will share with you, lol).....

Shadow Boxes - please bring scissors and your credit, ok - any stiff edged card will do - it's for applying your vinyl!  (we will have some there, but if you don't want to have to wait it helps to have your own)

HoHoHo Wreath - please bring scissors that will be good for cutting the burlap

Emergency Binder class - everything will be ready for you to assemble, it should only take you a short time, maybe 10 minutes - and you are all getting a bit of a refund....bonus!

Subway Art - remember that you need to provide your own frame, but really - it isn't all that necessary to bring it with you - this is something you will be able to just pick up the supplies for and put together at home if that is easier for you :)

Picket Fence Sign, Twine Flowers, Pie Filling Class - everything will be provided for you....just show up!  (lucky you!)

Pie Crust class - EVERYONE will need:  mixing bowl, rolling pin, pie plate (8-9"), pastry blender (if you have it, otherwise we will use knives from the kitchen), 1/2 c measuring cup (you are going to learn the Proper Way to measure flour - this will help in all your baking - yay!), and a paring knife if you have one and want (these will be easier to share)

Thanks so much for helping out by bringing these items, it certainly makes our teacher's lives a lot easier!  Look forward to seeing you all there tomorrow!!

(If you signed up to bring food you will be getting a separate reminder, thanks!!)

President Beard's Advice for Moms (How to prepare a missionary)‏

Our cute Anna took great notes last Sunday and was willing to share them with the rest of us - enjoy!!

President Beard came to Relief Society for Ward Conference and made himself available for questions.  With so many boys ahead of me, I wanted to know about missionaries.  How do I raise a boy who will want to go, be prepared to go and be successful (given my limited powers).  I specifically asked what I should do as a mother given he sees all the boys.  Ones who can't go, want to go, don't want to go, go and return, go and suck, etc.    What are my marching orders?  Here's what he said:
1. Teach your boys to work hard.  Missionaries have to rise, shine, approach strangers, and do it all day long.  Boys are coming home because they can't/don't work.  It's too hard for them.
2. Have/develop a real testimony.  Not to knock the testimony/thankimony/travelogues of Sunday but boys must know and believe their Savior and the Book of Mormon and Joseph Smith.
3. Curb morality issues.  All issues but specifically porn.  He didn't care how great your Internet blockers were, there is too much out there.  Even on TV, video games, etc.  You can't escape it.  Imagine you're Satan and you want to destroy families and people in general.  Porn is a great way.  Boys need to know WHY they should avoid porn.  He asked all of us and for about 10 minutes the women answered and were wrong.  We didn't get it (scary because how can we teach our sons and daughters).  Finally for the sake of time he just told us.  We are literally gods and goddesses in infancy.  We covenant to live the law of chastity, not word of wisdom or tithing, because to create is divine and morality, etc is Heavenly Father sharing his divine power with us.  So not only are we damning ourselves (and literally damming) but we are mocking Heavenly Father's power.  He cited D&C 132:19-21, D&C 84:38.
4. Teach the boys the atonement is true.
5. Teach the boys what the priesthood is.  D&C 107, 121
6. Know what a mission is.  Take Brother Jones's missionary prep class.  He thinks it's the best in the valley.
7. Read the New Testament.  Many boys come to him having read the Book of Mormon but the people they teach haven't.  If they are lucky the people they teach will be Christian and they only know the Bible.  How do you converse about Christ if you've never read the New Testament.  What is the New Testament?  (I have a great idea for this one if I do say so myself.)
 :) Anna
