It is the ultimate guide for supplementing your study/teaching! If you serve in another auxiliary like Young Women or Primary or are unable to attend your meetings regularly, this book can help you get more out of the lessons. It is so good, you may be tempted to teach/study out of it without remembering the manual, so make sure you pair them together. The summaries at the beginning of the chapters could help if for some reason you needed to wing a last-minute lesson. Don't get me wrong--this book should not replace the manual or good lesson preparation, but definitely keep it in your church bag, refer to it often, and you won't have to worry about looking up ideas for your lesson or further study suggestions any more.
The obvious audience is Relief Society or Priesthood teachers, but everyone would benefit from studying the material in this book as we go through the Joseph Fielding Smith manual next year. All the prep work is done for you! There are ideas for object lessons, scripture mastery verses, references to Preach My Gospel, pictures to display, quotes to share, talks to study, and even links for videos to show. There is a challenge to give to the members to help them apply the teachings from each lesson. Also, each chapter even ends with ready-made handouts so you can just run off copies. I can't think of anything else you could need! You just choose the sources that will best benefit those you are teaching.
I am super excited to use this book and share it with others. I plan to read the talks referenced at the end of the Introduction regarding teaching by the spirit and also look up the Relief Society blogs listed at the end of the book. Then as we go through the lessons next year, I will use this as a gospel study guide for further enrichment. My only negative is that I didn't know about this series earlier!
I had never used a manual like this before in preparing classes. As Relief Society President I found the choices to make my personal study more Spiritual and this overflowed into the classroom. I used this manual to chose the songs for the class. I loved that there were many songs to chose from but I did not have to do the research for them. I like choices and do not like to have a prepared lesson so this was great for my needs
As a former Seminary Teacher, I know the value of good object lessons. I always try to implement them into my teachings, I found the object lessons in this manual to be well thought out and easy to adapt into the lesson. They work so well with the official church manual for the year. There are so many resources for each lesson that there is no way to use them all but they will enrich the teacher none the less because she will be armed with knowledge. This will no doubt strengthen the Spirit in the classroom. I found that it enriched my personal study to a higher level even before the lesson ever was taught in the classroom.
The manual offers quotes that add Spiritual and up-to-date information from General Authorities. I highly recommend this book to any adult Latter Day Saint who wants more power from the lesson manual with less work. I shared the manual with my first counselor and she could not believe the handouts. She loved the manual as well.
My husband is Elders Quorum Leader and he was impressed most with the quotes and video suggestions. I loved this manual and will be using it all year. I found that I was spending more time with the manual while using this resource guide because it made me think on a higher level. I hope to find a new one each year to assist with updated resources. The title says it all “The Ready Resource”.
I received this book free from the author in exchange for a review. This has no impact on my review what so ever. I give honest reviews.
