- Ask the question: What would the Lord like to have happen in the lives of those we serve?
- Open up a copy of For the Strength of Youth and choose a standard that class members need help with. (You can do this with any kind of a list: Young Women Values, objectives of the Young Women program, etc.)
- Share a scripture or counsel from a church leader and discuss how we can follow what is taught in that scripture or counsel.
- Who in our class do we need to include more? Is there an interest they have that they could share or teach in an activity?
- Who needs service? Did one of the girls moms just have surgery? Are there any new moms in the area who could use some help? What about single women or widows?
- What activities from the LDS Youth Activities website are connected to the Come Follow Me lesson outlines we will be teaching soon?
- Ask what goals the youth have and what they want or need to learn about to complete them.
- Use the instructions on the LDS Youth Activities Website labeled “Plan with a Purpose”
- Follow Kollette Hall’s Planning with a Purpose Tutorial
Now, when they get stuck, I simply prompt them with the question, “What can we do when we get stuck?”
I asked how we could get more Beehive age girls to participate in Elder Anderson’s challenge. They answered that we should have an activity about Family History. We chose a date for the activity and tabled the discussion for the next meeting.
