My co-author and I have been asked to make some revisions to Teaching Special Spirits. We were asked for more stories from teachers, church leaders, and parents to be included in each chapter. Lynn & I are so excited for this opportunity to share more of your stories!
At this time, we are working on gathering stories in the following areas:
- Activity Days
- Scouting (Cub & Boy Scouts)
- Priesthood Advancements
- YM/YW Activities (Mutual)
- YW Personal Progress
These stories can be anonymous, if you prefer. In that case, we will change the names or re-write the story to be more general, such as "One teacher shared with us a story about a little girl in her primary class." All submissions will be edited, then emailed back to you for approval, as well as a contract to sign if your story is chosen for inclusion in TSS.
Stories from teachers and church leaders: We are looking for tips that helped you in your calling in the areas mentioned above; stories of how working with youth with special needs has strengthened your testimony; special moments you shared with a youth with special needs. Stories can be heart-warming or humorous.
Stories from parents: We are looking for stories about your children in each of the areas mentioned above. Specifically stories of how participating in the activity helped your child develop a relationship with Heavenly Father, strengthen his testimony, or love attending church. We would also like stories of how church leaders and teachers from the above activities have made in impact on the parent's testimony through acts of service or display of brotherly love for their child with special needs. Stories can be heart-warming or humorous.
We would love to receive submissions from youth sharing their stories at church activities with their friends with special needs.
Stories can be as short as three or four sentences, but should not exceed one double-spaced page. Submissions are due by August 5th. Please email submissions to Danyelle@FergusonAuthors.com
