March 2018 Training

The focus for March will be on Temple & Family History Consultants training - PREPARE SPIRITUALLY

March 5-10 - Temple & Family History Consultant training
A couple of weeks ago a new TAFH Consultant told me that when she was called she was told "This is a calling that doesn't require much work!" ??? We frequently have newly called Ward and Stake “Temple and Family History Consultants” come to our library seeking help with their new calling. We are happy to help! Many of us could use that training as well! They and many of us are unaware of the the great training that is available to us on and familysearch for Temple & Family History Consultants, Ward Councils, and Priesthood Leaders!. (Disclaimer: This is my 1st attempt at putting training on YouTube in a video format. Quite an educational experience! In some ways it was harder than I thought, but with some practice it will get easier! Don't be too critical!)
