  1. HI Tiffany,

    It would be helpful to have the page numbers for the songs on the saving talents blog. I’ve enjoyed using it & have found it to be helpful.

    Saw the ice cub activity for where your treasure is. Looks like fun.

    For the devotionals and FHE for week of 3/11/2019; I liked the, Matthew 11:28–30 treat Deviled eggs (yoke/yolk…get it?) or peanut butter eggs. Pretty clever play on words. I’ll have to prepare ahead of time for this treat. : ) Angela

    1. Thank you!! So the songs are all linked – if you click on the song, it takes you right to where the music and lyrics are for it. 🙂

      Glad you like the activities, we’re excited to be doing them!
