ACTIVITY: My Conversion to the Gospel Journal
Tell youth they can pass on righteous traditions by first recording their testimony for posterity. You can leave a legacy of love to your friends and families in word and deed by writing your testimony on this Gospel Journal about your conversion to the gospel of Jesus Christ. With this, future generations can read of your love for the Lord and the gospel. How you feel now about the gospel can be of great worth and value to your family now and to your posterity (future generations).
Things You Could Write About: • your testimony • spiritual feelings about the scriptures, our Savior, Church leaders, family members, or friends who have strengthened your testimony • paying tithing • attending church • obeying specific commandments • faith • your baptism • receiving the holy ghost • priesthood blessings • missionary work • testimonies • examples to follow • scripture heroes • experiences of being baptized for the dead • desire to be married in the temple • desire to live a Christlike life • desire to serve others • joy that comes through service • parents, brothers and sisters, and relatives who have influenced you • living specific gospel principles • ways the Holy Ghost has witnessed to you that the gospel and the scriptures are true
TO MAKE: Print activity in color or black and white.
TESTIMONY SHARING: This week or the following ask youth to share their testimony on objective: What can I do to help new members of the Church? “For many people, becoming a member of the Church can be challenging. It may involve leaving behind old friendships and adjusting to a new way of life. Each new member of the Church needs friendship, a responsibility, and nurturing with “the good word of God” (Moroni 6:4). We can help new members by befriending them, serving alongside them, and sharing our testimonies with them.”
EXTRA MOTIVATIONAL ACTIVITY:
TRADITIONAL TREASURES: Ask each youth to share a righteous family tradition. Make note of ideas to copy and share with the title: “Traditional Treasures.”
