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.
