Blog Tour/Review: The Ready Resource for Relief Society by Trina Boice

Tour Schedule

The Ready Resource for Relief Society: Teachings of Presidents of the Church--Ezra Taft Benson, by Trina Boice
2014, 160p, LDS Non-Fiction
My Rating=4 Stars
Source: Received a copy from the publisher for an honest review

Preparing for Relief Society has never been easier with this invaluable book. For each week, you’ll find a lesson summary, quotes from General Authorities, hymns that match the topic, and a beautiful handout you can copy for each sister. With all the prep work done, you can focus on personalizing your lessons to fit the needs of your dear sisters.

This is a great resource if you teach Relief Society! For each lesson, there's a summary, hymn suggestions, object lessons, Gospel Art picture suggestions, quotes from General Authorities, video links, church magazine articles, a handout and a challenge. There's a lot of information packed into each chapter so there is more than enough to use in each lesson. 

I don't teach Relief Society but I think this would also be handy to read along with the lesson each week as a supplement, especially for anyone that can't regularly attend Relief Society. The information looks wonderful and I'm excited to dig into it throughout the year!

One note: I reviewed a pdf copy so I'm not sure what the print copy looks like but if you're a teacher and want to make handouts, you definitely want to get the print copy.
