Scripture Heroes & Primary Heroes


Guy received a special note and gift from his wonderful Primary teacher today. She is moving out of the area, and we'll be very sad to see her go.  Sister Hare...a.k.a. Tarin is a great friend of mine, and has been a very loving teacher and example to my first-born in the wilderness!  I love what she wrote in her note above, because it is so true.  Each of us can do great things when we follow our Savior, Jesus Christ.

The special gift that she gave Guy is this set of Hero Cards...They are a set of cards dedicated to 40 different heroes from the scriptures.  The premise for the cards is that basically, everyone needs heroes in their life.  Instead of looking for 'super heroes' in movies, let's look for real heroes found in the scriptures.


Each card has original artwork on the front and a corresponding scripture, but my favorite part is the bullet points on the back that give you the short-hand version of how to emulate the scripture hero that is being described.


Now, I have kind of a hard time using the term "heroes" since my parents taught us time and again not to put anyone on a pedestal and that Jesus Christ should be our example, because he is the only perfect person to walk the earth, but I think that Tarin has said it right.  We can certainly have "heroes" in the scriptures and follow their examples as they follow Christ.

Guy already has posters of the Armies of Helaman and Samuel the Lamanite in his bedroom.  Anyone wielding a bow and arrow is pretty cool in his book!  Thank you for all that you have done to grow Guy's testimony, Tarin!  You're definitely a hero in our book, too!  Hooray for good Primary teachers!!! 


UPDATED 1/31/12 - A note to all my Pinterest friends who found this post just recently, yes, the link above is broken.  I am assuming that is because this company no longer exists, but I'm not sure.  The company is called "The Remember Company".  They used to be found at www.rememberthecovenants.com.  I think Guy's teacher bought them at a book store near the temple. Let me know if anyone locates this company or these cards again and I will update the link! THANKS for bringing it to my attention! Perhaps if Pinterest had been around years earlier, this company wouldn't have gone out of business! :)


Here is some old info about the company:

    My son's also have posters in their room. I really do appreciate all the wonderful artwork that they can see, because the amazing men and women of the scriptures really are wonderful role models.

  5. Those look really great. I think that would be a great way for kids to remember and learn the people in the scriptures too... something I have a hard time with myself.

  19. I found real Bible and Book of Mormon Cards at Seagull Book.  You can order them online, but I cannot find the ones that you have!  They are awesome!  The sets at Seagull also have Young Womans Real Heros who are all woman!  I bought all three sets and put them in a mini photo album book and use it as a quiet book at church!

  23. I contacted the parent distribution company, and spoke with the owner. Due to a loss in the family, the "Remember Company" branch will not be operational until December of 2012. My love and prayers go out to this family!
