Fourteen Fundamentals in Following the Prophet: Handouts and Games

Ezra Taft Benson’s talk called “Fourteen Fundamentals in Following the Prophet” has been a landmark talk and has been reprinted and referenced often in the past several years. Use these games, worksheets, and lesson helps to teach these timeless principles.

How to Organize a Talk Template

A lot has been said on what to say in a talk, but not as much has been said on how to organize it. These charts will help you organize your thoughts and also give you an easy way to cut major portions of your talk out should your time be cut short.

Scripture Notes Symbols

Margin space in your scriptures is precious. Save space to give you room to write more notes by labeling your insights with these symbols. These are the ones I use to help me quickly identify what insights I had when reading certain verses. This is also helpful when teaching, for example, if I need to share a personal story, so I can see at-a-glance if I have any relevant stories to share with my children or class.
