This week the handouts go with Young Women Manual 3 lesson 7, "Our Purpose In Life" It is made with Steadfast and Immovable's Kit Divine Nature found here.
Sometimes our lives get difficult and we need some direction one of the blessings that we have as members of the church is asking for a blessing. We can ask any worthy priesthood holder such as our fathers, home teachers and even your neighbor. The Lord may inspire these priesthood holders to speak words of guidance and comfort.
As worthy members of the Church, we are each entitled to a patriarchal blessing that is given from the Lord to us individually. When we receive a patriarchal blessing, we are told many of the blessings Heavenly Father has in store for us in this life and in eternity. These blessings will be ours if we live true and faithful lives. Patriarchal blessings often identify our spiritual gifts. Knowing these gifts can help us determine our purpose in life. (See D&C 46:10–12.) We are sometimes warned to avoid certain evil influences that our Father knows will tempt us. By knowing the promised blessings, our spiritual gifts, and the warnings, we can more wisely make decisions throughout our lives. A patriarchal blessing is one of the best ways to under stand your purpose here. It will contain many insights to your and your Heavenly Father's plan for you!
When I got the images and such from Erika she said: "Here is another lesson that I couldn't figure out which quote to use. I felt that they were all important, so I made three different handouts utilizing most of the quotes available in the lesson. I hope you like them!"
