Jesus Christ in the Americas: Scripture Story with Flannel Board Figures

NOTE:  If you're looking for our family blog, go here.  This blog is now 100% FHE lessons and parenting topics.  :)
It's been a fun, but very busy weekend here at our house.  Adam's baptism day was on Saturday which brought family from near and far to join in for the occasion.  It was a beautiful day, both weather-wise and spiritual-wise.  Later that night was our ward's fall festival which brought me to baking pies, cooking soup, and baking cornbread most of the afternoon.  Sunday morning dawned early with a happy little 10-year-old very excited about her Halloweeny birthday.  It was another jam-packed day squeezing in our church callings, Emma's birthday festivities, a big family dinner, and answering the doorbell for the few trick-or-treaters that came our way (only about 12-15 or so). 

Our family has started heading home today and I'm already sad about the "quiet" that's creeping back into our house.  Not that it's really quiet or anything, but the silly Grandpa teasing and the ensuing giggles are quieted.  The conversations with Grandma while snuggling on her lap are gone.  They barely left and we're missing them already. 

Because of the crazy weekend and the fact that the kids are off of school today and tomorrow, today I'm posting another scripture story, which are much less time-consuming to pull together than the full lessons are.  This story and visuals are one one that my friend, Jen Johnson (she moved to Dallas a few years ago and I still miss her), compiled.  I love the fun, whimsical visuals that accompany it (I think the visuals might be from Val Chadwick Bagley). 

Hope your autumn and Halloween festivities have been fun
(and only a little spooky)!!!

PS For optimal printing performance, it is best to create a free account with and download the PDF file before printing. As always, feel free to email me at if you are having troubles viewing or printing these lessons. I also love to hear your feedback and ideas for future lesson topics. 

It has been brought to my attention that some of my older lessons have been moved into the Scribd archives, which means that you have to pay a fee to download them.  The fee is nominal ($5 to download as many lessons as you want in 24-hours), but if you'd like me to send one or two of them to you as an email file let me know.  Unfortunately, due to my slow internet connection (30+ minutes to upload each lesson), I would not be able to email more than one or two lessons to you, but I'd be happy to do it if you let me know.
