Come Follow Me: March- What does it mean to have faith in Jesus Christ?

These ideas go with the Come Follow Me March Lesson: What does it mean to have faith in Jesus Christ?

When studying for this lesson I felt like going in the direction of being "Mothers of Faith".
For my attention getter, I printed off several pictures of women in the scriptures: Eve, Esther, Ruth, Abish, Hannah, Mary (Jesus' Mother), Elizabeth, Mary & Martha, Mary Magdalene, Mothers of the 2,000 stripling warriors, Rebekah, etc...

I taped these pictures to the back of my YW.  And we played a game kind of like "Headbands" but on our backs.  Girls had to walk around asking Yes or No questions to try to figure out who was on their back. 

Once they figured it out, I had them think how that women was a Woman of Faith.  

I told them we were going to talk about one of the pictures- the mothers of the 2,000 stripling warriors.

We then did Faith #2 in class talking about Mothers of Faith and reading the scriptures in the value experience and Family Proclamation.

We then made a list on the chalkboard and discussed traits that a Mother of Faith has.

We then watched 2 videos: 


First Video is from this VHS called "Set the Table".  It's about a family that is very poor.  A young girl is cleaning old pictures.  The mother tells her daughter to set the table for dinner.  The girl replies "Why, we don't have any food in the house?"  The mother proceeded to tell her that they needed the have faith that the Lord would provide.  So, the girl reluctantly set the table.  Then, when she was done setting the table, she went back to cleaning the old pictures.  She found money hidden in the back of an old picture.  It was enough money to provide food for the family for a whole week.  
(This is a true story from an Ensign issue I think back in 1980s)

VIDEO #2 was the video in the outline: Pure and Simple Faith

We then discussed how these mothers taught their daughters about faith.  We then had a discussion of how we can be or prepare to be mothers of faith.
