Making Tough Choices

This is a summarized version of 5 points in Marion G. Romney’s article “What Would Jesus Do?
New Era, Sept. 1972, pp. 4-6.

HOW TO FOLLOW THE SAVIOR WHEN
MAKING TOUGH CHOICES

1. Search the scriptures.
2. Honestly face the challenge or question with a sincere desire to solve it as Jesus would solve it.
3. Through study and prayer, weigh alternatives based on what you know of gospel principles.
4. Make a decision in your mind.
5. In prayer, explain the situation to the Lord, tell Him you want to do what He thinks is right, and ask Him to give you peace of mind if you have made the correct decision.

Decisions Determine Destiny

Jennifer H. shared this handout and says, “We print a monthly calendar to pass to the young women and to their mothers (passed out in YW and Relief Society). On the back of the calendar we like to add a thought to go along with the Sunday lessons for that month. For this one, I combined ‘The Path You Choose‘ taken from your website (YW Maze created by Artist Chris Gunn and donated to www.jennysmith.net) and a portion of a talk given by Thomas S. Monsen entitled “Decisions Determine Destiny”. (Thomas S. Monsen ‘Decisions Determine Destiny’, CES Fireside for young adults, Brigham Young University, November 6, 2005.)

Making Good Choices: Stairways and Superheroes

This great FHE lesson was submitted by Kristy T. She says, “My husband Brent did this for FHE this week and the kids LOVED it, and I felt impressed to share it. So I got up at 5:00 a.m. this morning to put it together.”

This lesson uses object lessons and handouts relating to staircases (included) to demonstrate that when we make good decisions, we progress, and when we make poor choices, we descend. It also uses a discussion on superheroes as an attention-getter to get children thinking about what makes these heroes super.

Could be adapted for use in Sharing Time, or possibly even Mutual.

Thanks, Kristy!
