My "Molly" Moment.

I did, I had a "Molly" moment, and I just have to share it!

I was asked as the Relief Society secretary to make invitations to our next board meeting. I wanted to make sure that the sisters knew we were putting some effort into the meeting and we love them and want them to come, so I made these this weekend:

I'm really happy with how they turned out :)

I'm also teaching tomorrow (today!), and I didn't want to do a traditional RS lesson, so I came up with what I am calling "Testimony Prompts", since tomorrow is Fast and Testimony Sunday. Inside each little envelope is a question that should prompt a testimony.  I'll have all the sisters take one, and they can either answer it or pass (because I don't want there to be any pressure) and I'm hoping we have a great RS testimony meeting this way! Here are the envelopes I made, and the the "prompts" are listed below :)

Inside the envelopes are these "Testimony Prompts" :

Have you ever had a meaningful experience at the temple?

What was the first calling you ever had?  What was your favorite calling?

Is there a time when Heavenly Father gave you a direct answer to a prayer?

How old were you when you were baptized?  Do you remember it well?

Has your testimony or the way you live your life ever made an impression on a non-member?

Have you ever had a meaningful experience while visiting teaching?

Has there ever been a missionary that made a meaningful impact in your life? What was his or her name?

Have you ever had a visiting teacher make a special effort for you that made a difference in your life somehow?

What is something that you do in your daily life that pleases your Heavenly Father?

What made you get up and come to church today?

Have you ever had a priesthood blessing that helped you in a profound way?

Do you have a favorite hymn? What do you love about it?

Have you ever done any genealogy work for your family?  Have you ever discovered anything interesting or had any meaningful impressions from your genealogy work?

How has the priesthood made a difference in your life?

If someone asked you how you knew that Joseph Smith was really a prophet, what would you tell them?

Is there anyone in your life who provides you with a wonderful example of living the gospel?

Is there anyone who makes you feel welcome and loved when you come to church?  What does he or she do to make you feel that way?


Here's my newsletter message (not the whole newsletter, because there are first and last names of some of the memebers):

~ Presidency Message, By Lisa Eggers, Secretary ~

This month I’m thinking a lot about Bishop Ward’s Book of Mormon challenge.  When I heard about it, I got really excited.  I really wanted to do it!  And I did start it.  But then life happened!  And I’m still in Nephi  (I won’t tell you which one!).  It doesn’t look like I’m going to complete the challenge.  But I don’t want to give up. I could quit reading it now, because I’m not going to be able to finish it in the next two months. That doesn’t sound like a good idea, though. I think I’ll stick with it.  I think Heavenly Father knows I would like to finish it and that I’m trying my best to do what I can.


Have you started Bishop Ward’s Book of Mormon challenge yet?  Maybe you haven’t started yet, and you’re thinking you probably won’t finish it in time. Well, you’re probably right! But you can still take up the challenge and see how far you get. It will feel good to know that you are reading the scriptures along with the rest of the ward and that you have taken the Bishop’s challenge to heart.  Don’t give up! You keep reading and so will I, and who knows, maybe we’ll surprise ourselves by how far we get!  So let’s take up the challenge, or stick with it, and enjoy reading the Book of Mormon as a ward family!


The thing that prompted my "Molly" moment? Well, for the last couple months I just felt like I wasn't giving it my all.  I've been slacking a bit in my RS calling.  Also my friends and I want to do a temple trip soon, and I just felt like I wasn't ready to go.  I wanted to show Heavenly Father, our RS president, and MYSELF that I could turn things around. I don't think I'll be spending next weekend making adorable invitations and coming up with fun lesson plans or anything, but I do think I've turned a corner, again, and I'm back on track.  

Have a wonderful Sunday!!!!!


  1. Super uber awesome!!! I'm home sick from church. :P

  2. Oh yuck! Is Dan home to help? Get a blessing if you can and I hope it passes soon. xoxo

  3. How did it go? This looks like a great idea, I might steal it for when I have to teach the next presidency lesson!

    1. It went really well! It seemed like everyone got the question that was meant for them. The sister that got the question about the temple had the best story: She met her husband at the temple and a few months later he asked her to marry her in the Celestial Room. No one even knew that about her! You should definitely steal the idea, questions and all! But you are a creative gal so you'll probably come up with some good questions of your own to add. Just be prepared for a room full of crying ladies! If you ever do it, let me know how it goes! xoxo
