Tools For Memorizing "The Living Christ"

A few years ago, our Stake gave us the challenge of memorizing The Living Christ. I thought, WHAT?!?!?! That document is huge!
Seven hundred and sixteen words HUGE!

And sadly, I didn't do it.

For some reason that's always nagged on me.
Especially when I hear people share how they memorized it
and the strength they have felt from knowing those words by heart.

In this last General Women's Meeting, Sister Neill F. Marriott shared a story of the 900 Young Women in Alaska who memorized The Living Christ. Their influence led Sister Marriott to make a goal of memorizing it on her own by Christmas. I thought it was a great goal!

So if you're interested in memorizing The Living Christ
we've gathered a few helpful ideas and resources from around the web. :)

I know that memorizing The Living Christ will strengthen your testimony.
The Holy Ghost will bear witness to you that Jesus Christ is our Savior and that this
is His true and everlasting gospel.

Happy Memorizing!


*And note that this would be an awesome 10-hour value project*


The site Book of Mormon Discovery has incredible resources including flashcards, study materials, and a specific week by week study plan if you want to memorize The Living Christ in just 12 weeks!
You can find all of this FREE study help here.

From LDS Handouts you can download the 15 cards to help you memorize each part of The Living Christ. It might be a great way to break it into 15 weeks of studying and memorizing!

At LDS Notebooking you can find a workbook and fill-in-the-blank pages to help you with memorizing!

This flip chart from Blog My Heart & Home could be a great tool!

How to Read Nutrition Labels

When you grab a bag of snacks, do you know what you're really eating? 
Are you just eating fat and empty calories?
Or are you eating foods loaded with vitamins, fiber, and iron?

Knowing how to read a nutrition label is a huge part of making healthy food choices.
We're not saying you have to count every calorie or never eat Twinkies again,
but finding foods that are giving your body the nutrition it needs is a great way
to feel good, boost your energy, and give your body the best kind of fuel.

And reading nutrition labels doesn't have to be super complicated!
Read below for a simple breakdown of what each section means for you and your body:

DIY Modest Halloween Costumes

Halloween is less than two weeks away (hooray!!)
but finding a modest Halloween costume can sometimes feel impossible.
I'm mean, really?!?! Sometimes I just don't even want to dress up for Halloween
because there isn't a costume I would wear!

So, making your own might be your best option 
and we've gathered a few to kickstart your imagination!

Scarecrow: Jeans, plaid shirt, floppy hat, and add some cute face paint! (source)

Ms. Frizzle: Just tape on some planets and start to a solid colored dress and add a lizard! (source)

Snap, Crackle, Pop! Just find items of clothing in your closet in the right solid colors
and then add words and buttons with paper and tape! (source)

Mummy: Cut up a king sized bed sheet into stripes and wrap up tight! (source)

stuff it with pillows, newspaper, etc. Add whatever face you'd like!!! (source)
