Template #2 for Relief Society and Elders Quorum lessons – 2023. To use this template, you’ll need your 5 favorite highlights and material from any General Conference talk. If you need highlights first – go to “5 Steps For Creating a Relief Society or Elders’ Quorum Lesson.” This post assumes you have 5 highlights with questions/material prepared.
This simple template below is my most-used, personal go-to plan. It’s a great standby, especially if you have limited time to prepare for Sunday! See also Relief Society & Elders Quorum Template #1 for a class plan with more variety built in.
