SEMINARIES & INSTITUTES

LENEXA, OLATHE & TOPEKA STAKES

WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 14, 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

IF IT LOOKS GOOFY:

When you look at the Scripture Mastery Diet activities (quizzes, etc.) on google docs, they might look a little funny (columns a little off, or lines extended to the following line, etc.). Don't worry. If you download the document it should open up correctly. To download a document from google docs, simply click the "download" button at the top of the document.


SAVE PAPER & INK: You will notice that some of the Diet's activities seem to be really large print. For example the quizzes. While you can print them off like this and have giant quizzes, it is recommended that to save paper and ink that you follow the instructions in the title of the document. I.e. usually the quizzes are titled something like:


SMD 4.5 Quiz #4 (Print 4 per page)


Note the "(Print 4 per page)" instruction in the title. This is to encourage you to select "print 4 per page" on your printer before printing. You'll have to cut the paper afterwards to get 4 separate pages, but it will save ink and paper.


Let me know if you need help.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

"Dear friends, there is a throne in heaven for you! Year after year (decade after decade for some of you!) you prepare through the night, set the alarm for the morning, groan when it goes off, and then either drive somewhere in the dark or welcome into your living room a pajama-clad, uncombed, sleep-dazed cadre of students. What a holy work you do, and what a shield of faith you and your predecessors have given to now two-thirds of a century of early-morning seminary students. And never underestimate what those students are hearing and feeling, in spite of appearances. Bless you and bless them for one of the remarkable examples of devotion demonstrated in this Church—a program that unfailingly impresses leaders and parents and administrators of other faiths who know of early-morning seminary.


Be Not Afraid, Only Believe
