Curriculum- Morning Devotional


This year, we decided to have a theme- Fulfilling All Righteousness. We have never done this before, but I think our family will really benefit from it. I'm planning on implementing it through our morning devotional, Old Testament studies, F.H.E., mini unit studies, and anywhere else I can fit it in! It looks like we will probably hit every significant milestone this year- baptism, Aaronic and Melchizedek priesthood, a mission, and marriage. I really think this theme will help us to stay focused on the significance of these events.

For our morning devotional, we are using a lot of resources from LDS.org. We start the day working on hymns. It's easy to download them from the music section of the site. We sometimes download conference talks and articles from church magazines.

Preach My Gospel is another great resource. We will also be using the Duty To God , For The Strength of Youth, and Faith in God books.

Great ideas!! I can't say I do a morning "devotional" but at night, before bed is when we do all of our family scripture study/Article of Faith reciting -- things like that. I'm actually really, really excited for my daughter to start Activity Days...It'll give our family something new to focus on (along with family scripture study, of course!). I never thought to do a theme for the year. You'll have to give us updates once in awhile on how that goes. I think it's a good idea!
