Contention. I hate it. Ironic huh?
Contention is a part of what happens in families but something we all try to stop in our homes. I was thinking about it and what I could do to help our family lessen it when I came across Gordon B. Hinckley's quote -
"There's a sad tendency in our world today for persons to cut one another down.... Try the opposite of that. Try handing out compliments."
Compliments. How easy. I thought this would be a super first step for me to take. And then I had this idea (the Boyfriend calls me "the idea woman"). I could make little Compliment kits. I love kits. (You can see a collection of kits on my Pinterest board.)
I was heading down for a trip that some of our family had planned when we had Leila's funeral. We also decided to do devotionals when we got together. I wanted to do the compliment kits for them as part of mine. Here's what's inside and how we use it.
I really like how they turned out. I Mod Podge® fabric to the outside of an Altoid® tin. Inside, I added some fun things. Here's the nestibles for you. Print. Cut. Put together.
Here's a FHE lesson to help talk about with your family.
You'll have to tell us what you think and any of your experiences in using it.
Sometimes I don't know why. I just do things. A nestle = printable. Click on image.
If you made up an it's my life graphic what would you put in it?
Some of you have been asking about what and how to use the handouts we do here at LDS NEST. There really is a method to our methods.
We women in the church like our handouts. For as long as I can remember I've been getting handouts. I've even saved several from when I was in YW. (Let's not ask how long that's been.) One problem I had was that the handouts weren't accessible when I wanted them. And frankly, some of the other handouts I threw away and felt it was such a waste of resources.
I wanted a solution.
To help save on resources I started designing my handouts as 1/4 sheets (4 to a printed page). That way if someone didn't like them and threw them away it wasn't so bad. Also, when in leadership positions I suggested that all of us design handouts in this way so they could all be consistently sized to save.
Second, I put them on a ring. And for a lack of creativity I called it my Ring Thing. It stuck. I've been doing this size for years and it's been very helpful.
Some people hate handouts but personally I like them, probably because I'm visually oriented. Handouts remind us of thoughts and feelings we've had while being taught or a specific doctrine or principle that is important to us. They end up at bedsides, on fridges or taped to mirrors. It's part of our learning and changing.
(As a bonus, I've found that it helps the YW (or kids for seminary) re-teach a principle.)
My Ring Thing is like a mini book. A personally collected tutorial. You really can collect anything you like.
Here's our some of our covers.
Here at LDS NEST we'll continue to do most of our handouts at this size. Maybe you'll start designing and doing the same.
If you have any Nestie thoughts about this, let us know.
