SEMINARIES & INSTITUTES

LENEXA, OLATHE & TOPEKA STAKES

WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 28, 2015

OUR PURPOSE

Our purpose is to help youth and young adults understand and rely on the teachings and Atonement of Jesus Christ, qualify for the blessings of the temple, and prepare themselves, their families, and others for eternal life with their Father in Heaven.

SCRIPTURE MASTERY DIET TIP

The diet suggests that students be quizzed every Friday. The quiz gives students the opportunity to show how well they have mastered the scriptures at the end of the week. The quizzes are provided through the weekly e-mails.

When students take quizzes, allow them about 30 seconds for each 5 scripture passages. For example, if the quiz has 10 scriptures, allow students 60 seconds or one minute to take the quiz. At first this might be challenging to students, but with your help they will be able to do it.

NOTE: Be sure to allow students to re-take quizzes often to improve their score. Do everything you can to help them be able to pass the quiz on their own.

After the quiz, you may allow students to correct their own papers. The quiz gives you and the students an idea of how well they are linking the references and the key words.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

“No unhallowed hand can stop the work from progressing; … the truth of God will go forth boldly, nobly, and independent, till it has penetrated every continent, visited every clime, swept every country, and sounded in every ear, till the purposes of God shall be accomplished, and the Great Jehovah shall say the work is done.”




Joseph Smith, in History of the Church, 4:540.
