Once Upon a Time....

Lesson 4 of Manual 3 in entitled:  "Preparing to Become an Eternal Companion".  As a supplement to this lesson, the resource guide recommends a talk given in the General Young Women's Meeting from April 2010, "Your Happily Ever After" by Elder Uchtdorf.  Such a wonderful talk!  What a great lesson supplement!  Some supplemental material just lends itself to great visual aids and this one certainly does.  There are times when the visuals can overpower the simple beauty of the lessons of the Gospel.  I found myself running amok with ideas for handouts and visual aids.  It is the testimony given by the Holy Ghost is what is will touch their hearts and simple is best.  I tried to make a handout that they could carry with them (Lipsmackers lip glosses) and think about the choices that will come their way in the next few years.
