When the LDS Church published Joseph Smith’s journals, I read them from cover to cover, thinking that it would be a profound spiritual experience to study the life of our founding Prophet. The things I found in his personal accounts were disturbing, confusing, and highly contradictory to modern church teachings. I could not maintain my integrity while also continuing to teach the specious modern narrative of Joseph Smith’s life to these precious girls. So, in June 2017, I resigned from my calling with a very heavy heart. I am still willing to post new activity ideas from whoever wants to contribute. I appreciate your compassion and understanding in this matter.
Implementing this Activity Days requirement will have a lot of variation from ward to ward depending on the learning abilities of your girls and the differences between them. Do what is best for your ward, even if that means that you do very few Article of Faith activities together. The Faith in God program is a team effort. Consider leaving it up to parents to “pass off” the Articles of Faith to the best of their child’s ability.
