While I still worry that I may not be cool enough to work with teenagers, I think my first lesson yesterday went pretty well. I got all excited and decided to work on next week's lesson. It's on the Purpose of Life. That should be pretty easy to cover in 30 minutes, right?
I Love this scripture: Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all they ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:5-6
So very wise and true, but I am just not a very good "consider the lilies of the field type of girl", but I'm working on it.
The scripture got me thinking about how the purpose of life is really just a journey to return Home. I love a good theme-especially if it involves a lot of puns. So I'm comparing our life to a big road trip. Just as we need various tools for a road trip (GPS, maps, asking people for directions etc.) we also have some great spiritual helps on our earthly road trips (prayer, the Holy Ghost, blessings, scriptures).
I made this handout using Cricut Everyday Paper Dolls, and Paper Doll Dress-up. I thought they'd like the idea of themselves cruising down the highway in a little red convertible.
