NEWS FROM THE BLACK LDS LEGACY CONFERENCE:
At the Black LDS Legacy Conference in the Washington DC Temple Visitor’s Center in February 2019, I was thrilled to learn from this power team (left to right): Zandra Vranes and Tamu Smith (the Sistas in Zion), Marci McPhee. Back row: Kalae Paoa, Niecie Jones (conference co-chair), Marguerite Driessen, and LaShawn Williams (conference co-chair). The conference theme is on my T-shirt: “If ye are not one, ye are not mine” (Doctrine & Covenants 38:27).
NEWS FROM BYU-HAWAII:
Many thanks to student writer Esther Insigne and student photographer Chad Hseih for their terrific coverage of our presentation “Awareness towards one’s emotions leads to a culture of service” in the BYU-Hawaii magazine Kealaka’i. The presentation featured excerpts from all three of our books. Co-presenter Michelle Henderson is a contributor to both Sunday Lessons and Activities for Kids and Girls’ Camp: Ideas for Today’s Leaders.

What’s missing from “Sunday Lessons and Activities for Kids” that bridges the ideal world of church lessons and the real world of actual children? Email me if you’d like to write about one of these topics, or to add to this list for the sequel one day:
- What do you say to a child in your class whose parent dies? Clearly it’s not necessarily the responsibility of a child’s church teacher to say much – but what should you say?
- Martin Luther King Day – teaching children about modern-day heroes as well as scriptural heroes.
- How do you talk to children in age-appropriate ways about tragedy? There are lots of helpful websites, but what works for you as a parent or church teacher?
- How to teach about Word of Wisdom or tattoos — “How can it be so bad when Aunt Susie does it?”
