  1. Awesome communication assignments here. The questions help a student to walk through and to get to know their bible.

  2. Ron Nelson says:

    could be some interesting responses from leadership, however, using the interview process with leaders and then doing research, will allow the student to begin to develop as a spiritual leader. It is the Lord’s church and the expectation is for leaders to have grown in their faith. I like what you have put together here. It is easy to follow.

  3. Curt Trygstad says:

    Carl,

    I was able to follow your instructions and access all elements of the worksheet.

  4. Joshua Sohl says:

    Carl,

  5. Darlene Fezler says:

    Carl-Everything looks great to me. I think the students will gain great knowledge about their church and the Bible. Love it all.

  6. Karen Lorinser says:

    I was able to access everything and was able to move around easily in the program. I really liked the interview part of the assignment. I think connecting with people is important!

  7. Chris Brooks says:

    Great stuff.

    What if you have each student identify a question that has confounded them (dinosaurs, UFO’s, life on other planets, divorce, etc.), and have them use the Bible to come up with a Biblically-based response to their question? Using the Bible to answer life’s toughest questions equips students for life.
