In Faith #2 you will learn Qualities a mother needs in order to teach her children how to have faith and live by the gospel standards.
There are 3 steps:
1. Read the required scriptures
2.Discuss qualities of a woman with someone
3. record your thoughts in your journal
Being a mother may sound too far into the future to worry about now, but remember Personal Progress teaches you how to form habits which will benefit you your whole life. You may not have children you can teach now, but I’m sure at some point soon you will teach a FHE lesson, give a talk or spiritual thought, bare your testimony, teach part of a lesson in YW, or share the gospel with a non-member friend. Those are all teaching experiences. This experience will not only help you learn how to teach your children, but also others.
In turn, those teaching experiences will prepare you to teach your children.
For the discussion you have, you can choose to read the scriptures with or without the woman you choose. It does not specify that you have to read them with her, but it might be nice to do that.
It also might be fun to read over “The Family: A Proclamation to the World” and find the roles of a mother with her. You can highlight them, write them down, or just point them out.
Discussion Question Ideas:
What qualities will help me teach my children the gospel?
Why will they help me?
(From the personal progress booklet, page 14) “How can these principles help [me] in [my] life today and help [me] prepare to be a faithful woman, wife, and mother?
How can I learn to develop these qualities now?
What qualities did the stripling warriors’ mothers have?
Make it an activity!
During mutual read the required scriptures.
Give each girl a copy of “The Family: A Proclamation to the World” and have them highlight the roles of a mother, write them on a chalkboard or have the shout them out when they find them.
