This week we talked about the 2000 Stripling Warriors. They were 2000 young men, with absolutely no battle experience. But, they had faith that God would help and sustain them if they were needed. They were definitely needed, and after a super hard battle, where many men were lost, including captains, it was discovered that not one of the young men had been lost. What made the difference?
It was their faith in God and their reliance on Him. We explored a little bit about what that kind of faith might look like. We watched this talk by Elder Dale G. Renlund:
Over the years, I've had several of the girls I've taught at church ask me how to keep the Spirit they feel at EFY with them all the time. This talk gives a great answer. It is faith. It is doing the right things when no one else is watching.
After we watched the video, we wrote phrases on index from the scriptures and from this talk that we posted around the house. Jayce really got into it.
