The Ready Resource for Relief Society - Teachings of the Presidents of The Church: Gordon B Hinkley

About the book: Whether you’re a new teacher or a seasoned veteran, preparing Relief Society lessons just got easier. For each lesson in the manual, this ready resource includes an accompanying chapter summary, pertinent quotes, relevant hymns, object lessons, and more. Now you can focus more on personalizing your lessons for the sisters in your ward!

My review: This is a great resource if you're teaching Relief Society in your ward!

I liked the way that this is set up. Each chapter corresponds to a chapter in the Gordon B Hinkley Teachings of the Presidents of the Church book that we're studying this year. Each chapter includes songs that you could use with them, a quick summary of the chapter, quotes you can use with the chapter, art that you can use, and a few object lessons as well. There's even a place for you to write any notes or thoughts you have as you're reading the lesson.

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
