How Do I Receive Personal Revelation? May Come Follow Me Young Women lesson.
When I taught seminary I would always use the analogy of an old fashioned radio whenever I taught about receiving revelation, and it always was a successful teaching approach! This package has everything you need (quotes, visuals, teaching ideas) to use this analogy as you teach about this important topic.
This package also has a handout with 28 ways the Spirit communicates with us, a printable for Choice & Accountability experience #5, a pocket notebook (to help train those you are teaching to write down promptings from the Spirit), a True to the Faith study sheet, a really impactful story, and a locker print (handout)! You can just pick and choose the things that will work best for you.
You can find this package here: How Do I Receive Personal Revelation?
It is also available in our May combo package with all 6 lessons: MAY COME FOLLOW ME: Prophets and Revelation
This month we have some free social media images for you! All of them match the teaching package too.
These can be used in any of the following ways:
- Post on social media to your youth to help get them more prepared, excited, and thinking about the lesson.
- Use their answers in your lesson (they will be more likely to respond to future social media questions if you do this).
- Ask them to post the question on their personal social media accounts and gather answers themselves (plus they are sharing the Gospel online!).
- Text or email the picture to your youth and tell them that you are gathering answers for your lesson and ask them to respond.
- Use as a follow-up to your lesson. Post the images that will help reinforce what they learned in class.
- Use to help involve and teach young women who were not at the lesson on Sunday.
- You can encourage the young women to comment and participate on social media by telling them that every time they comment you will enter their name into a drawing, and then you will draw out one name and they will get a treat.
- Right click on picture, save to your computer or phone.
- Email it to yourself if you need to transfer the image from your computer to your phone. Then open on your phone and save the images to your phone.
- Post on social media.
Here are some pictures you can choose from:
This is a great image to post before your lesson. You could say something like: “Hey! This is a little sneak peek into our lesson on Sunday. Everyone try to guess what goes in the blank! Just leave your comment and we will see who gets it right. Hint: the same word goes in both blanks.”
This is another good one for before your lesson. You can use the answers you receive to help introduce your lesson. Sometimes youth can be shy in class, so you can use their answers they posted on social media.
And this is another great one to post before your lesson. This is the suggested learning activity in the Come Follow Me lesson: How Do I Receive Personal Revelation?, so you can use it days before you even have your lesson and help those you are teaching ponder this topic for days before.
- Note: These images all have the radio image. They won’t know what it means until the lesson which is a great teaching technique. They will be much more interested and likely to remember when it has already been a part of their lives before the lesson.
This image is best used following your lesson. They will immediately know what it means and be able to do a quick personal inventory. Super effective!
This image goes with Choice and Accountability Experience #5. Our teaching package has a handout for this experience that you can do together or send home with the young women. This image would be perfect for follow up to that experience and help them apply it to their lives. In fact, you could post this every day for one week and encourage the young women to share one thing (that is not too special or sacred) every day. This is a great way for the young women to influence each other as they work on gaining these traits together.
This is a short and powerful quote that would be great to post after your lesson. Each person who sees it may have something come to their mind that they need to act on.
This is another quote that emphasizes action. In fact, if you give them the pocket notebooks from our package, this quote could help them connect the importance of 1- receiving the revelation, 2- writing it down, and 3- acting not it.
If you gave the handout with 28 ways the Holy Ghost communicates with us, then this is a good image to share with those you teach. Not only will they have to try to remember, but they will also be reading each other’s comments so they learn them again!
