Patriarchal Blessing – Activity

Patriarchal Blessing game & activity

The goal for our Wednesday activity was to talk about Patriarchal Blessings and help the girls pass off Individual Worth #2.

Since we were doing this during the week I wanted to do something fun!

We had everyone take their shoes off and put them in a pile

Then we blind folded each Young Women (leaders too) and had them pick out 2 shoes (we made sure each person had a right and left)

Those were the shoes we wore for our games
We played- Duck Duck Goose- 
in mismatched non fitting shoes- 
it was quite funny.  
We talked about how the shoes did not fit us, that it was a bit uncomfortable and that it would be so much better to have had our own individual shoes. 
Then we talked about our Patriarchal Blessings- How our Patriarchal Blessings are unique to us, that it is a personal blessing from Heavenly Father to us, an opportunity for him  to give counsel, blessings and warnings.  
We read from True to the Faith  and chatted about how to prepare a head of time.  One of the young women mentioned how they can be like a map- giving us direction and blessings but predicated upon our righteousness.  It was a great night, and they could pass off Individual Worth #2

I am so grateful for my Patriarchal Blessing, It has given me an opportunity to see truly how my Heavenly Father feels about me &  gives me insight into my premortal existence.  He also gave me very strong warnings- I am grateful to know that he knows me personally and knows I need blunt- and that is what he gave me.
