Mother’s Day FHE Lesson – How to Celebrate Mothers Everywhere

This Mother’s Day FHE lesson helps participants discover what they appreciate about their mother figures and how we can show appreciation to our mothers all year round. 

 

Book-Of-Mormon-IconSm

Scripture

Alma 56:48

And they rehearsed unto me the words of their mothers, saying: We do not doubt our mothers knew it.

Hymn

Dearest Mother, I Love You | Children’s Songbook, pg. 206

Gentle words I hear you say.
Your kind hands help me each day.
You’re my mother kind and true;
Dearest mother, I love you.

Lesson

 

Begin by watching this video. Before you play it, ask everyone to think about a good memory of their mother or the mother-figure in their life.

 

 

Ask: What is something you appreciate about your mother or mother-figure? Is there a specific time where she has really influenced your life?

Read aloud: We are all blessed to have righteous women in our lives. They teach us, inspire us, and comfort us. Each spring we have the opportunity to celebrate mothers and all women who act as mothers to the children of God.

It is a time to reflect on the women who have influenced us and how we can follow their example. It is also a time to show our love and appreciation to the women who have been mothers to us.

Ask: Why is showing appreciation important in the gospel of Jesus Christ?

Read aloud: It is exciting to celebrate mothers on a specific day like Mother’s Day. It makes showing our appreciation easier. However, Heavenly Father would have us honor our mothers every day of the year. In fact, he wants us to serve and love all of those around us as often as we can. That is one way he takes care of us; he inspires others to serve in his behalf.

Ask: How can we celebrate mothers throughout the entire year?

Finish the lesson by bearing your testimony of the importance of righteous women in your life.

Strawberries and Cream Cookie Cups

Ingredients: 

Cookie:

3 cups flour {scooped not packed}
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
1 cup -3 tbsp sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Cream:

1 can Sweetened condensed milk
Whole milk {use the same condensed milk can as a measure}
2 tbsp cornsarch
1 egg yolk.

Topping

12-15 Strawberries {chopped}
2 tbsp sugar

Directions:

In a medium bowl whisk together the flour and baking powder. Set aside. In your stand mixer with paddle attachment beat together unsalted butter and sugar until well combined. Add in egg and mix well again, then add in vanilla.

Start adding in the flour mixture a cup at a time. Mix until dough forms and begins to clump together.

Gather up dough and knead it with hands until it’s nice and smooth. Roll it into a ball, wrap with plastic wrap, and place in fridge to chill about 20-40 minutes.

In the meantime…

Pour the condensed milk in a small saucepan. Then fill the condensed milk can with the milk and add the cornstarch. Mix well. Add it to the condensed milk and add in the egg yolk.

Mix all well on medium heat. Mix constantly to avoid lumps to form until it thickens. This may take about 10 minutes or so. It needs to get really thick. You know it’s ready when you can see the bottom of the pan while mixing.

Turn off the heat and let it cool completely.

Once cool put the mixture in a piping bag with your favorite tip and put it in the fridge until the cookie cups are ready and cool.

Preheat oven to 350ºF and butter a 12 muffins pan.

Get you cookie dough and make small balls, about a tablespoon full. Put them into each muffin hole and press them against the bottom to the sides. if you think it needs more dough you can adjust the amount.

Bake for about 10-15 minutes.

The dough tends to grow a bit and lose the cup shape, don’t panic that’s normal. Once they are done, just re-do the shape using a smaller cup {smaller than the muffin hole} or a species bottle as soon as you take them out of the oven. That way they keep the shape as they set.

Let them cool completely.

Pour your chopped strawberries in a small bowl and add the sugar, mix well and leave for a few minutes to create the syrup. This helps delay the oxidation process.

Pipe your cream into the cookie cups. Top each cup with strawberries. Avoid the syrup to come. Use only the strawberries.
