Scripture Message
Margaret Shauers, “Scripture Message,” Friend, Mar. 1987, 26

To discover the scripture message, write the letter of the alphabet that comes before each letter under the blanks. __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __, __ __ __ __ Z F M P W F N F L F F Q N Z __. E N F O U T __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ J G D P N N B O __ __ __ __

To help you listen to the conference messages, do this activity with your family. Give each member a copy of the playing card and a marker for each square. Whoever has put down the most markers by the end of each conference session is the winner. Alternate version: Instead of making individual playing cards, have the whole family play on one game board, with different-colored markers for each person. When one of the words is mentioned, the first person to put a marker on it wins the spot. Whoever has put down the most markers by the end of the conference session is the winner.

In each session of conference, listen to the talk given by a member of the First Presidency. In the left area of the work sheet, fill in the blanks with his name and what you have learned from him, then draw a picture of it. In the right area, fill in the blank with what you will do to follow his counsel, and draw a picture of that.

Write a few notes about what these men talk about and something you will try to do better. President Thomas S. Monson spoke about..

In one section of the shield, draw a picture of your country’s flag. In another section, draw a picture of something that represents your family. In another section draw something that illustrates one of God’s laws. In the last section, draw something that represents you (a picture of yourself; a soccer ball; a musical instrument; your favorite color, animal, book, or place; your house). Think of a motto and write it in the banner at the top of the shield. You may choose from this list or think of another one: “I Am a Child of God,” “Love One Another,” “I Will Follow Jesus,” “I Love Truth,” “Choose the Right.”
