Gospel Doctrine Lesson 20 Activity & Supplement Ideas

Gospel Doctrine Lesson 19:ruth gleaning the fields

As with any gospel centered lesson, it can be difficult to get the full breadth of understanding if we do not invite the Spirit of the Lord by the reverent manner in which we teach and preach. These lesson helps were gathered from several prominent websites but we encourage you to seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit in the activities you choose so that your particular class can more easily receive inspiration and the principles and doctrines taught will sink into their willing hearts. Good luck!

PURPOSE OF THE LESSON: To encourage class members to emulate the righteous qualities of Ruth, Naomi, and Hannah.
