We know how hard it is to be called as a teacher in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints! The lesson manuals that we use in the church really are amazing. There is so much information in the manuals that most of the time, you won't have time to even get through it all. We also know that most teachers need a little extra help to keep their classroom engaged in the lesson.
Whether you're teaching Primary, Sunday School, the Youth or Relief Society, having an object lesson, game, or other activity to go along with the lesson will really help make your lesson memorable. We NEVER go outside the content, nor do we discourage using the lesson manuals from the church. Our lesson helps SUPPLEMENT the lessons with matching printables, coloring pages, and/or activity ideas using the ideas already in the lesson and helping you know how to implement them in different ways for your classroom.
Megan Hanson: Owner/Designer
Hello! I'm Megan. I'm so glad you've found your way to Love Pray Teach! I've been designing lesson helps for Latter-day Saints for over 8 years. I began my career as a graphic designer. When the new Come, Follow Me program began in 2013 for the Youth, I saw a great need to help others learn how to teach in this new way. My oldest daughter was a Beehive at the time. She would come home from church and tell me that for the lesson they would pass around a Conference talk and take turns reading a paragraph. I thought, "There has to be a better way!!" So I began designing and creating Young Women lesson helps! I sold my YW packets to a site until I was able to start my own website. In 2017, Love Pray Teach was born! I hired three amazing women to help me and we were able to offer much more than just Young Women lesson packets. When the Come, Follow Me program began for families in 2019, our little business really took off! Since then, I have been able to hire 5 more women. It is a joy to teach these women how to create lesson packets, and they in turn bring their own uniqueness and talent to the team.
Our greatest hopes and desires for Love Pray Teach is to help others feel comfortable teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. Over the years, we have heard from so many of you how our lesson packets have helped you in your callings, and now within your own families. We thank you for the referrals and word of mouth advertising. It is the highest of compliments!

Brinn Kartchner: Designer
Brinn has always been very creative and loves art. When she had her first baby, she wanted to find a job that would allow her to work from home. Brinn started with us learning the ins and outs of the Young Women lessons for about 6 months. Beginning in 2020, she jumped in and started creating them herself! She has a unique style that is perfect for the YW age group. She said, "One of the things I love the most about making lessons for Young Women is the opportunity to share my thoughts and insights with girls that are not far off from my own age. That and also helping the Young Women leaders better connect with their girls through the material. My hopes are that I can help people come closer to Christ." We have loved watching Brinn grow in her talents and look forward to her beautiful designs and lesson materials each month!
