Heads UP! Each person who reads TJEd for Teens chapter 4 "Falling in Love With Learning" and is prepared for an awesome discussion of it on Dec 8, will receive a reward!
Be one of them! 


This week in Core Leadership we had a couple of wonderful guest speakers come and teach us about their experiences while serving a Self Reliance mission in the Philippines. Their presentation was wonderful! They shared how powerful it is for a person to gain the skills and education that can then propel their life forward, lift them from poverty and help them to better live a full and enriching life. We are so appreciative of Brother & Sister Hansen for taking their time to come share with us!

This week's Inspirements

1. Print out these two maps that are linked below and learn more about the Philippines. Follow the instructions on the papers then show your finished papers to one of your parents.(Be sure you have your parent's permission if you want to search for these answers online.)
World Map
Philippines Map

1. Do the Apprentice Inspirements.

2. Brother & Sister Hansen talked about how their mission was spent helping people become more self-reliant, and how as they learned to become more self-reliant, they were able to grow and improve their lives. What areas in your life could you learn to be more self-reliant? Make a list in your Truth Book.
Some examples might be:
  • keeping up in my student planner
  • remembering to do my chores without being reminded
  • getting up in the morning when I'm supposed to
  • doing my school assignments now instead of pushing them off until later
Prayerfully consider your list and choose one thing from it and work diligently at being more self-reliant in that one thing for 3 days. At the end of the 3 days, report to your Heavenly Father how it went.

  1. reliant on one's own powers and resources rather than those of others.

1. Do the Apprentice & Journeyman Inspirements.

2. Look up Self-Reliance Services on These are the tools that Brother & Sister Hansen used to teach the people in the Philippines. Spend 1/2 hour or more perusing this incredible information, learning about the things that are interesting to you. Then tell someone about something interesting you learned from this site.

Thank you, Scholar Society, for a great lesson last Thursday!

Heads up:

You're going to LOVE this chapter! 

This week's Inspirements

1. In TJEd for Teens it says, "Great mentoring changes your life. If you want a truly great education, find and follow good mentors." (pg 50)
    - In your Truth Book, identify and write down the names of good mentors you have in your life right now. They might include your piano teacher, Sunday School teacher, parents, friend, neighbor, books, etc. Think deep and broad and write down as many as come to mind. 
    - During this month of November, make an increased effort to express your gratitude to each one of them. :)

1. Do the Apprentice Inspirement.

2. Watch these two video clips from the movie "Karate Kid." Observe how Daniel (the mentee) is being mentored by Miyagi (the karate mentor.) Daniel has come to Miyagi asking him to teach him karate. Miyagi agrees but has a curious way of beginning his teaching...

3. Daniel was asked to do things that didn't seem to have anything to do with karate. But because he submitted himself to Miyagi's mentorship, he finally began to understand and began to see the value in it. 
    - Do a Word Study on the words Submit/Submission. (How to Do a Word Study) This will be an awesome study!

1. Do the Apprentice and Journeyman Inspirements.

2. As you step more willingly into the role of Mentee, you will learn more and more that your greatest and most trusted Mentor is your Father in Heaven. Neal A. Maxwell gave a tremendous talk about the need of being willing to submit to Him to achieve our greatest potential. Print out this talk and read it thoroughly, underlining and annotating as you go. For a deeper experience, pray before you read it, asking Heavenly Father to teach you specifically what you need to gain from reading it.
Willing to Submit
