Sample Miniclasses

Understanding and Loving Your Patriarchal Blessing — “A patriarchal blessing literally contains chapters from your book of eternal possibilities,” teaches President Monson. “It is your passport to peace in this life. . . to guide you unerringly to your heavenly home.” Discover how to make greater use of your patriarchal blessing, so that it can comfort and anchor you, and strengthen you in your daily effort to choose the right.

Developing Your Talents and Creativity — Our grandmothers made their own clothes, knit socks, milked cows, churned butter and sold it, raised chickens, gathered wheat, and served the Church. Is any less required of us? We don’t have to do exactly what they did, but we do have to be just as industrious, just as compassionate, just as frugal, just as prepared. This is our heritage as daughters of God who have each been endowed with distinctive gifts. Unleash a more talented, creative YOU, and just as in Christ’s parable, your talents will multiply!

Goal-Setting for Lifelong Learning — You already know what you need to do to have a more rewarding life, but the demands of daily living make it difficult to maintain the focus needed to achieve lasting changes.
