Lesson 149: Doctrine and Covenants 136:19–42 - Make a "Comfort Quilt" for the Mormon Pioneers as They Crossed the Plains.

During this lesson I had the students search through D&C 136:18-42 to find words of comfort that would help the pioneers journey across the plains.  I gave each student a paper Quilt block and then they took turns sharing the scripture that they found and why that scripture would bring comfort to the pioneers.  As they took turns I took their quilt block and placed it on the board to form a quilt for the journey.

Here is how mine turned out:

I also gave the students this quote from President Monson to put into their journals.  I had them write about how they can be a modern day pioneer.

The lesson went great!  The students had some great insight.
