My Body Is A Temple - Learning and Living the Gospel

First have everyone share what their favorite temple is and why.  Talk about how they felt if they've been to one, or what they remember if they have been lucky enough to go to an open house. Then you can explain to them that even though temples are all different, each is a House of God. 

Share this scripture:  1 Corinthians 3:16–17 [1 Cor. 3:16–17]:
“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?“If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.”

Have the girls pick a charade card out of a bag or box and act out what is on the card for everyone else to guess. Once all the cards have been guessed, you'll have covered these principles on keeping our bodies like a temple (some of which are gospel standards)

Give each of the girls one of these hand-outs with the following quote:  
Even though each temple looks different, all are beautiful and are built for the same purpose. They are buildings where special ordinances take place that are needed for us to return to Heavenly Father. You are like a temple. You are different from everyone else, but you too are a house for the Spirit of God—the Holy Ghost. Your body is a temple for your spirit.

 Also give them a "Future Temple Recommend" that they can sign their name to.
