“Don’t Miss This”… Emily and David are so down to earth…that is one of the reasons watching their You Tube videos are so fun. You never know what you will get in their conversations… Emily’s story about Dakota really touched me. You never know who you will touch, and how it will impact their lives.

I seriously want to see what your “Hell Shaker” T- shirt would look like!🤣

Fortunately I Scripture Journal…so on my tabs, beneath ALMA, I added “the Book of Heroes”. 🙂

BWAHAHA! I am so happy David calls Ammoron “A moron”! Whenever we start reading these chapters as a family we have lots of giggles because that’s how we all say it. And yep, I am the mom who is encouraging it (sorry, Emily 😊).

My heart was so incredibly touched. I wonder “where is Dakota?”

David you always start with, “You all”. I love it. We love Texans! ❤️ All of my five sons were raised in Tx and two of them were born there. I am sorry that you are coming to end of, The Summer of Hero’s. It has been an awesome summer. I have enjoyed it! Thank you following the spirit and binging the light of Christ in my home. I love you both!!!! 💕💕💕💕💕💕💕🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

That was such a beautiful not to leave you. Beautiful story.

Thank you for your closing comment, “Jesus is the real Hero, and the only reason any of us win battles.” This is so true. I Love studying with the two of you.

When listening to the sweet Dakota story, I was struck by the beauty of the salutation, “Sister”. That note of gratitude from Dakota demonstrates the power of being a “sister” or “brother” to all ages – especially our youth!! Thank you for sharing this story, Sister Freeman. ❤️

So, as Emily and David were speaking of getting little army men to represent the different groups I wanted to jump into their video and say, “Hey my husband did that exact thing several years ago when he taught gospel doctrine class!” He used magnets to attach them to the board. It was great!

Oh my goodness we HAVE TO find Dakota!!!!!!

1

Loved this so much. I REALLY want to know where Dakota is now and what his story has been since that seminary day

Oh you two make me laugh (and cry and feel the Spirit too!!) – Enjoy those Dr Peppers David!! 🤣 and thank you both for the time you spend teaching us!!! 💖

Yass!! You know the word 동기- dongi. I served in Korea 10 years ago. Even though I don’t talk to my dongi very often anymore because we’ve got families, it’s like this connection that we have. And we call each other each other’s dongi

So grateful for your teaching, Emily and David! The story of Dakota brought tears to my eyes. What wonderful kids to think to invite him! What I love most about your teaching is how 100% Christ-centered it is!!! Thank you for always bringing us back to the Savior.

Thank you so much for the summer of heroes!! It was so fun. I was able to get the bracelet for my primary class. Also printed out the hero sheet. And sent them the information each week. Have a great week!!

God bless Dakota, I know he is in his hands wherever he is. <3

Best map – Book of Mormon Central and their supplement , Scripture Plus.

Dakota’s the hero this week

Emily – your statement today reminded me of this quote that I LOVED from @LiveFromSnackTime “I have a lot to say, maybe you should make some popcorn.” – anonymous – 6 years old

Love the Take Five weekly ideas I’ve been keeping these for future study next time we do Book of Mormon. Wonder if you could resend the past two with corrected Heroes. Thanks!

You two are awesome, thank you for having such love for teaching the Gospel.

Oh David, it makes me so sad to think you could have had a bad week. Next time that happens please think of me and the huge difference you have made in my life and the strength of my testimony. Battle on!

Wow…the story about Dakota. Thank you for sharing and reminding us all to look around and see who’s missing! 💙

Here in Victoria Australia 🇦🇺 Its very cold, but in lockdown by the heater watching David & Emily after having sacrament with only three of us, this helps to make my Sunday perfect ! ThankYou. 🙏🏽😷🇦🇺

For my fellow scripture journaling fanatics…I hope this is the right video for this comment…Emily mentioned a talk on the perimeters of war…something to watch for. I am just wondering if the word the Stake President was thinking of was Parameter? Which has a slightly different meaning (a limit that affects how something can be done) I find these “parameters”: 1.  Accountability Alma 43: 3 2.  Commandments of God Alma 43:47, 46:23 3.  Covenants Alma: 43:13, 45:15 4.  Faith Alma 44:4–5, 48:7 5.  Gratitude Alma 44:5, 48:12 6. Inspiration Alma 43:45, 48 7. Prayer Alma 43:49 8. Prepare Alma 43:9, 19, 26 9. Preach 43:2 10. Revelation Alma 43:2, 23 11. Prophecy Alma 43:2, 24 12. Plan Alma 43:30 13. Duty 43:17, 46

No hero this week?
