2011 Primary Assignment Wristbands

One of my cousins had one of these on his wrist last Sunday and I thought it was the cutest idea so I made some up for next year's Primary. There's 6 all together: Talk, Scripture, Opening/Closing Prayer, Theme, and Article of Faith.

Flower in a Pail

This is a portion of the talk given by President Monson during the General Relief Society Meeting. If you have not heard this talk, please take the time to read/watch/listen to it, you may do so HERE.

A woman by the name of Mary Bartels had a home directly across the street from the entrance to a hospital clinic. Her family lived on the main floor and rented the upstairs rooms to outpatients at the clinic.
One evening a truly awful-looking old man came to the door asking if there was room for him to stay the night. He was stooped and shriveled, and his face was lopsided from swelling—red and raw. He said he’d been hunting for a room since noon but with no success. “I guess it’s my face,” he said. “I know it looks terrible, but my doctor says it could possibly improve after more treatments.” He indicated he’d be happy to sleep in the rocking chair on the porch. As she talked with him, Mary realized this little old man had an oversized heart crowded into that tiny body. Although her rooms were filled, she told him to wait in the chair and she’d find him a place to sleep.
At bedtime Mary’s husband set up a camp cot for the man. When she checked in the morning, the bed linens were neatly folded and he was out on the porch. He refused breakfast, but just before he left for his bus, he asked if he could return the next time he had a treatment. “I won’t put you out a bit,” he promised. “I can sleep fine in a chair.” Mary assured him he was welcome to come again.
In the several years he went for treatments and stayed in Mary’s home, the old man, who was a fisherman by trade, always had gifts of seafood or vegetables from his garden. Other times he sent packages in the mail.
When Mary received these thoughtful gifts, she often thought of a comment her next-door neighbor made after the disfigured, stooped old man had left Mary’s home that first morning. “Did you keep that awful-looking man last night? I turned him away. You can lose customers by putting up such people.”
Mary knew that maybe they had lost customers once or twice, but she thought, “Oh, if only they could have known him, perhaps their illnesses would have been easier to bear.”
After the man passed away, Mary was visiting with a friend who had a greenhouse. As she looked at her friend’s flowers, she noticed a beautiful golden chrysanthemum but was puzzled that it was growing in a dented, old, rusty bucket. Her friend explained, “I ran short of pots, and knowing how beautiful this one would be, I thought it wouldn’t mind starting in this old pail. It’s just for a little while, until I can put it out in the garden.”
Mary smiled as she imagined just such a scene in heaven. “Here’s an especially beautiful one,” God might have said when He came to the soul of the little old man. “He won’t mind starting in this small, misshapen body.” But that was long ago, and in God’s garden how tall this lovely soul must stand!

General Conference Bingo PG 1

This is a request from Micah W., who wanted a color one! I thought to doll it up a little so you guys could print these out and laminate them for years of use. I will be doing more than one page to rotate the characters as well as throw new ones in. These will all be 8.5x11, I would recommend having these printed at Walmart or somewhere so that you don't lose any of the border. Have fun!

Amy G. requested Cub Scouts stuff, so here's the beginning to get the creative juices flowing. I don't have a lot of materials for cub scouts so please comment with ideas or helps that you would like, that maybe aren't free somewhere else :) Best wishes! This will be fun!
(Don't worry Amy, I still have your Action Plan to come later!)

Peace be unto thy soul Binder cover

This scripture has provided such comfort to me and I'm sure to thousands of others, that I couldn't help but share. I have this on my teacher binder I love it, especially because the painting is of Joseph Smith in Liberty Jail where he received this chapter. ENJOY!


December 2010 Primary Theme: I Know My Redeemer Lives

 We are at the end of the 2010 Primary Themes, can we have a party now? Hope that you have enjoyed these so far. I will be now working on 2011 monthly themes and I will have them available for download before the new year. Why? Well I've received more than one email asking this year if I could finish them so that they could have the whole year's to have up all at one time. I tried and failed on that count, but I want to redeem myself for those ladies that asked for them. I will also be making a new size for each, an 11x14 so that it's larger and you can post it up and all the kids will be able to see. You will still be able to download the 8.5x11 and the sheet of 4, it's just something that I'm adding. ENJOY! And happy planning for the 2011 theme: I know the scriptures are true!
