    How to Teach the Gospel to Teens in a Way that Avoids Lectures and Promotes Connection || Jerry Gerard

    I’ve been hinting at it forever.
    Introducing my brand new course! I’m so happy to give you a sneak peak into my new course, The Latter-day Mom’s Guide to Spiritually Empowering Your Teen.
    Episode 97 is actually module 1 of the course. I am airing the interview for module 1 on the podcast for free, so you can get a taste of what the full course is like.
    You will hear my interview with Jerry Gerard, a father of 12 and author of the book Partners with God. Jerry was our family’s bishop when we were starting our own parenting journey. My husband and I have looked to Jerry and his wife, Melanie, many times when we were decided how to parent our children.
    You will hear tons of great parenting advice, even if you don’t have a teenager yet. You will hear Jerry share the number 1 reason you need to teach the gospel in your home. Jerry also identifies three methods of teaching the gospel that avoid lectures and actually promote connection with teens.
    Get Module 1 Access for Free I am also giving you access to my members area for the course so you can check out all of module 1 for FREE, including the workbook for module 1.
    I wanted this course to be more than just some good information about how to spiritually empower your teen. When you act, you will feel power in your life. That’s why I created a workbook to help you act on what you are learning in the course.
    The workbook for each module will help you focus on three things–learn, reflect, apply.
    The course officially launches on July 13th and you can purchase it at a founding member price of $77 between now and July 9th.

Sayler's wife ,

Very spiritually minded

I love how all of the episodes content relates back to being spiritually minded. Parenting, depression, worldly chaos, studying the gospel - all become easier when we strive to have the spirit with us each and everyday and in all circumstances.

Dads too!

Even for Dad’s this is a great podcast!

One of my favorites

Darla's podcasts were one of the first podcasts that I started listening to and remain to this day one of my go-to's. I appreciate her insight in the gospel and the insight of the wonderful guests that she has on the podcast. My days are uplifted and I find myself striving to implement the wonderful advice and encouragement she shares.
