Teaching all. Questions are a great way to involve everyone—whether your group is a Sunday School class, a group of Primary children, or your own family. Review some different types of questions ( p. 26) and consider how they might enhance your next teaching and learning opportunity.
Feeling at home. Whether you’re new in your ward or branch or not, you can find a place in your Church family. See “Making Any Ward ‘Home’ ” ( p. 22) and consider putting into practice one of the suggestions this week.
Serving our neighbors. In “Not Just a Blanket” ( p. 25), a mother recounts the love she felt from a gift made by the women of a nearby ward. To find out how you can donate such humanitarian gifts, visit www.providentliving.org and click on “Humanitarian Services.”
