Mary H. Ross and Jennette Guymon-King would like to thank their customers for supporting their efforts to make gospel learning fun. Because of you, over one million books and CD-ROMs have been sold through Covenant Communications.
They are the Author and Illustrator of the Sunday Savers, formerly Primary Partners series of books and CD-ROMs. Since then, they have created the Young Women Fun-tastic! Activities series, in addition to books for family home evening, sharing time, singing time, and even games!
Click to view their latest Sharing Time. And throughout this website, you will be able to view books, CD-ROMs, and games now available at deseretbook.com. There is also a library of activities to download immediately (click on the A-Z Lesson INDEX on the right).
“In 1986 we published our first books through Covenant. Since then, over 300 books and CD-ROMs have been published.
Our mission is to create teaching tools – activities with visuals that children, teens, and young women could create to make learning fun and memorable. For example, the “Sunday Savers” lesson activities and visuals help teach the enrichment activities that follow the lesson (where there are 15 minutes remaining). To make your teaching time engaging, you can introduce an activity, e.g.: a puzzle, game, or cut-out visual that helps reinforce gospel lessons. Our goal is not to replace the lesson content in any way, but to add to and enhance the lesson with visuals that will help them remember what they have learned.
Over 1,500 activities have been created for: Primary, Sharing Time, Singing Time, Activity Days, Young Women, YW Personal Progress, and Family Home Evening (see the menu above to find lesson match activities and the A-Z Gospel INDEX to the right to find individual subjects.
To view most of these activities we are placing them on this website to be available to you instantly.
Purchase books and CD-ROMs and more directly from your nearby LDS bookstore. Or, purchase them through this website taking you to seagullbook.com or deseretbook.com. See the HOME page to see the entire list of products available. From there you can click on individual products to see descriptions.
Download individual activities from our books and CD-ROMs (with the exception of the current sharing time books). Here you can find activities instantly and click onto the link for the lesson from the Church website.
We have tried to make the activities affordable, $0.50 – $1.50. You will only need to download quantity 1 as you can print what you need for your family or class.
Each visual is available to print in color or black and white.”
