Do You Want A Donut?

Teaching Atonement, Justification, Sanctification, Salvation, Grace, and Mercy.

Click HERE for a very effective class participation activity. It was powerful for my students. At first they looked at me with puzzled early morning looks but quickly the lights were turning on and they "got it" As their classmate had to continue doing push ups whether they wanted a donut or NOT.
The most effective was that the even if a person did NOT want a donut, the push ups were still done for them. Just like the Atonement-we can accept or reject. Even if we reject, the Savior still atoned for our sins. It is up to us to accept.

Before you do this with your class, be very familiar with the entire activity so you are prepared for the reactions from your students.
This is a very effective activity. I
 highly recommend it for Seminary, Sunday School, Firesides, Youth Conferences, Camps, Family Home Evenings, etc.
