The talk is from President Uchtdorf, General Conference, April 2016, Priesthood session. I found the talk that I wanted to use and then selected the key words and sketched them out to formulate my ideas for the slides. My audience for my powerpoint is the Relief Society sisters in my ward. I have to give a lesson to them in a couple of weeks. Next, I selected images that I thought invoked the feelings or portrayed my message. I incorporated a border around the image, using the eyedropper to help me select a color. I repeated the color for the border on the text boxes. Each slide repeated the same format in color, design, text size and type.
Michelle Davis liked my color choices and images. She suggested I overlap the text boxes to connect the text message. Brother Shurtliff suggested I widen the border and make sure all of the text in the boxes are the same. Some were all uppercase and a few were lowercase with the first letter being a capital. He also to adjust the spacing between the text boxes and the border.
Fonts: Aniene (Script)– Bold, for the (Title) and for variation in the text, Berlin Sans FB (San Serif) for the larger text. (Body)
