Discussion Questions
  • What are the dangers of communicating over the Internet or by texting rather than speaking face-to-face with someone?

Additional Resources

L. Lionel Kendrick, “Christlike Communications,” Ensign, Nov. 1988, 23–24. Replace the lesson’s opening demonstration with a discussion of Christlike communication as described in the following quotation:

“Christlike communications are expressed in tones of love rather than loudness. They are intended to be helpful rather than hurtful. They tend to bind us together rather than to drive us apart. They tend to build rather than to belittle” (p. 24).
