Timely tips, MommaS, as I just got a new calling that I shall not reveal here. *coughcoughrsteachercoughcough* I'm not into gimmicks so much, but since there's a rather noticeable cultural divide (Tongan and not-Tongan) in our ward, I'm all about getting the sisters to talk to each other. Ergo, the discussion groups are ideal. Well, they're ideal for US. Since we're reviewing the basics for the foreseeable future, I should be able to promote this without losing the point of my lessons. I think.
I would like to hear what you all do and don't like about your doctrinal teachers' methods--Sunday School, Priesthood, Relief Society, or otherwise.
You're unique, just like everyone else!
