    Will you be doing lesson help for Sister Craven’s talk?

      I am in school and so snowed under. The next talks will be from the October Conference. Have you looked at 5 Steps to a Lesson under the Teaching Helps tab? You definitely can put a lesson together just following those steps.

    Do you by chance have a list of the dates you anticipate having specific talks posted?

      Not really, I do about 12 of them and stop. Which one were you looking for? Also please check out “5 Steps to a Lesson” – try it. You’ll be great at creating your own.

        I don’t want to change your plans, I just wanted to see if you were going to do a post with any of the lessons I will be teaching. Thank you for sharing your insights!

    a mighty change of heart by Elder Eduardo Gavarret,,,I am desperate and need your guide, please!!! I’m suppose to give this lesson this sunday the 8th can you add his asap,,begging for you help

      Yes. Some quick suggestions. Fortunately, his talk is easier than most. Share his soccer story “Personal Connection” and ask “what stands out for you today from this story”? Let people share what they observed. POint out he had a change of heart which is one of the most important things that can happen to us as Church members. Then say, “Let’s see what Brother Gavarret says about getting that change of heart. There are 3 sections: Obtaining, Recognition and Covenant, Maintenance and Benefits. He has several suggestions for each section. Obtaining is really more like “starting.” How can we start that change? Make sure all your members have a copy in hand of the 3 sections just mentioned and their listed suggestions. Repeat for each of the 3 main sections: read the listed steps 1. 2. 3. 4., etc. together. Then ask “which one of these stands out for you today and why?” you can also ask questions like “what does it mean to you to “surrender your heart”? At the closing quote him and say “This mighty change of heart brings us a feeling of freedom, trust, and peace.” This is more than enough material to take up all the time. Love you. Good luck.

    I really liked Amy Wright’s talk: Christ Heals that which is Broken.

      I give that talk 5 stars! It had a lot of impact. It’s written up on this site if you want to search for it.

    when are you going to have a write up on Sis Craven’s talk: Do What Mattereth Most? I’m teaching on Mother’s Day. I love her talk and the ice cream story at the beginning.

    • Shawnie Cannon

      Good question! There are several talks that were voted higher, so I’ll try but can’t promise. Please have confidence in using the guide “5 Steps to a Lesson” You can make a great lesson just by choosing your five favorite quotes and coming up with a couple questions for each one. The guide will walk you through it. Blessings to you and good luck.

    I also appreciate your insight and lesson prep helps. It is nice to use your page as a reference when preparing. I am assigned to teach on Elder Renlund’s talk from women’s conference tomorrow. I need more time! :}

    • Shawnie Cannon

      Oh dear, I hope your lesson went well! Elder Renlund did a good job with his talk and hopefully, I can get it done by May. Blessings to you as you prepare and teach – your ward is lucky to have someone who looks above and beyond to prepare themselves.

    Does anyone know when they put the written version of the talks on Gospel Library? I’m teaching this Sunday (living in Scotland)…and freaking out!!!!

      You have to re-sync your phone. Or you can turn it off and on. On the computer, do a hard refresh on the General Conference page and they should show up.

    I also really loved Klebingat’s talk about confidently following the Savior.

    I’m teaching President Nelson’s talk for RS this week. Any idea if you’ll have a write up for that talk ready by then? I LOVE your insights and great thought provoking questions to use to guide the lessons.

    Thank you!!

      I’ve started it, I expect it done and up by Thursday. They still have not put the written version up – which I need for accuracy.

        Shawnee, I so appreciate the time and effort that you put into these lessons. They have been a Godsend. My Relief Society presidency assigns me certain conference talks to teach from. Over the last six months I have had some of the most difficult times of my life and for a couple of my lessons have wondered how on earth I was going to get prepared. Your lesson outlines have been miraculously available for the talk that I have been assigned and I thank God each time for the tender mercy. Thank you, thank you!

          Clarissa, that is so amazing because I don’t do all of the talks – just about half of them. I hope life is getting better. Thank goodness for our compassionate Savior and for this wonderful gospel.

    Pres. Eyring’s talk about changing and becoming as a little Child to allow ourselves to become more like Christ. This helps me when it comes to loving people in my life when it’s a little challenging. Thank you for all you do Shawnie, you make my calling soooo much easier!

        Hi Susan,
        I have not written up Elder Eyring’s latest talk yet. I would expect it done by the first Wednesday or Thursday of May. When do you teach?

    My teenagers said they liked Elder Uchtdorf’s talk. His talk resonated with them.

    I enjoyed all of the talks but if I have to pick one, Elder Hollands was a great talk to start off with. 🙂

      I agree! Both those talks are in queue.

    I think Patrick Kearon’s talk on abuse was one of the most powerful and eloquent talks I’ve heard on the subject. Could be helpful when shared individually.

    Reply
    • Shawnie Cannon

      I’m wondering about that too. I’m sure it will be used as lessons in some places – but powerful and sensitive material.

    President Nelson’s talk on forgiveness and contention along with his invitation to us.

    It’s been a bit poor so far but thought Patrick Kearin of the 70 was very powerful
