If you were listening in General Conference last month, you surely heard the challenge issued by Devin G. Durrant to ‘ponderize’ – ponder and memorize – a verse of scripture each week. I am (as I often am) late to the game, but I’ve meant to take up the challenge.
Here is the first verse we’re going to ‘ponderize’ around here: Psalms 118:24.
This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

5) Have (or help) children act out this interview of President Washington. (Requires a free Teachers pay Teachers account to download.) You could use props and improvise costumes – you may even want to make a tricorn hat for the President. This would make an excellent little something to video for the grandparents.
