Reading Scriptures

Goal: The goal of this lesson is to teach children they can read the scriptures to help them figure the answers to life's many questions. Including how to make cookies!

Lesson: You can use personal examples of reading the scriptures to receive personal answers or you can tell the story of Joseph Smith reading in James 1:5 when asking which church to join. Ask the children if they can think of any questions they believe the scriptures could help them answer in their own lives. Explain that Heavenly Father cares and loves us so much that he wants to help us answer even the smallest of questions we might have. Even if it's simply the ingredients to make Scripture Cookies!

Activities: To make the activity faster you can already have the ingredients out in the correct measurements so after reading the scripture they can help pour the ingredients into the bowl. Here is the recipe:

Beat Together:
3/4 c. Psalms 55:21 (butter) 1/3 c. 2 Nephi 26:25 (milk)
1 1/2 c. Jeremiah 6:20 (sugar) 2 Isaiah 10:14 (eggs)

2 c. 1 Kings 4:22 (flour) 1 t. D&C 101:39 (salt)
3 c. D&C 89:17 (oats) 1 c. 1 Samuel 30:12 (Raisins)
1 t. Songs of Solomon 4:14 (Cinnamon)
1/2 t. 1 Corinthians 4:6 (baking soda)

Bake on greased cookie sheet at 350 for 8-10 min.

Closing: Read first sentence of JS 1:37 and first sentence of D&C 133:11 then ENJOY!
