“Family Fun Time: Temple Preparation,” Friend, Sep. 2014, 6
Read “Michelle’s Birthday Wish” (page 4). We need to be righteous to come into Heavenly Father’s house. This is why the bishop interviews us before we can have a temple recommend. If you are keeping the commandments and repenting when you do something wrong, you are already preparing to enter the temple! Use the activity below to talk about how you can be ready for your own temple recommend interview when you are older.
Print an 8x11-inch (20x28-cm) picture of a temple. (You can download a photo at lds.org/temples.) Cut the picture into a puzzle and write a question on each piece. Take turns drawing the pieces out of a bag. For each puzzle piece you fit together, talk about the question on the back.
Be sure to get an adult’s help with this recipe.
1 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
5 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 large egg
1/2 cup milk
1 cup finely chopped peeled apple (about 1 medium apple)
Preheat oven to 350ºF (180ºC).
Mix the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl.
Beat the butter and sugar together in a separate bowl with an electric mixer. Beat in the vanilla and egg.
Beat in the flour mixture and the milk. Carefully stir in the apples.
Pour into a round 9-inch (23-cm) greased and floured cake pan. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when you stick it in the middle. Let cake cool for 10 minutes before taking it out of the pan.
