It’s spring, it’s beautiful outside, so I’m feeling daring. I’m feeling adventuresome. I’m feeling so good I’d even be willing to…willing to…DEVIATE FROM THE MANUAL this Sunday! Oh, the POWER!
I’m one of the TOTP RS teachers (wow, that’s a lot of acronyms), and I’m teaching this Sunday. I like this calling (best calling in the church, hands down). And I like using the manual to get some interesting discussion going. Our Relief Society is particularly chatty, so it’s really not all that hard.
But, as we all know, this Sunday is Mother’s Day, and there is something particularly depressing about teaching from the manual on Mother’s Day in Relief Society. I’d like to do something special, but I’m not really all that good at “special” stuff. Do I bring in food, do I do a different lesson, do I quote only from Eliza R. Snow, what? The Tales Gals are talking about what to do for Sacrament Meeting, but I’m wondering what I can do during the gathering of women. Any thoughts about things you would like to see happen in our women’s meeting on Mother’s Day?
I am leaning towards the food, thing, though, just so you know. I actually advised against it for Sacrament meeting, only because grubby little hands seem to get to our treats first if they see them, but in Relief Society, that wouldn’t be the case. We could indulge in SECRET! Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha…
