Only complete these additional assignments if you are instructed to.
Choose a gospel principle that you would like to improve upon, or one that has had a large impact on your life. Use the scriptures and other resources to write a 2-21/2 page paper on this topic. The paper should be double spaced and around 750 words.
Here is a helpful outline for your presentation from Elder Richard G. Scott
"May I suggest one...simple four-step outline. The elements can be used in any order. The content can be extensive or brief. A typical outline would include:
A well-expressed statement of the truth to be taught.
An example from everyday life to illistrate more understandably that truth.
A scripture to give power and meaning to the truth.
A personal testimony of the worth of the truth and, where possible, a personal application of it."
"I wrote down a few lines every day for years. I never missed a day no matter how tired I was or how early I would have to start the next day. Before I would write, I would ponder this question: 'Have I seen the hand of God reaching out to touch us or our children or our family today?' As I kept at it, something began to happen. As I would cast my mind over the day, I would see evidence of what God had done for one of us that I had not recognized in the busy moments of the day. As that happened, and it happened often, I realized that trying to remember had allowed God to show me what He had done." (Henry B. Eyring, October 2007 conference, "O Remember, Remember")
Write in a journal each day for two weeks about the ways you saw the hand of God blessing your life or those around you. At the end of the two weeks, write a one page paper describing what you have learned from your experience. (You do not need to submit your journal entries.)
