Teaching Tip: The Seven Dispensations Memory Aid
"A dispensation of the gospel is a period of time in which the Lord has at least one authorized servant on the earth who bears the holy priesthood and the keys, and who has a divine commission to dispense the gospel to the inhabitants of the earth" (Bible Dictionary, "Dispensations"). Each time, after a period of falling away, the gospel is revealed anew, so that people of that dispensation have accurate and unadulterated information upon which to build their faith. As a memory aid for the chronology of the seven major gospel dispensations, here is a little story with awesome artwork by myself :) Feel free to copy or print it.
