Proclamation to the Family Mini Album

I try not to refer to my website very much with this blog because I want my ideas here to be FREE!  But, I do have this fabulous mini album to show you!  I took the proclamation to the family and broke it down into a mini album.  It is an awesome gift.  I wish the pictures would do it justice because it is a perfect family gift!  Here is a few sample pictures of the album.  You can break it down and make it yourself.  Or, order our kit on our  Hope you like!

Young Women Manual 2, Lesson 41 Optimism Handout and Lesson ideas

I made this handout in a 4x6 format so you can print it as a picture at the photo lab. Or, you can just use the 8.5x11 format and print it on your computer! I attached these to a box of Lemon heads for the girls. You could also attach it to a packet of lemonade or a can of lemonade! I hope you enjoy the handouts! (The cute little lemonade kit is CITRUS SPLASH by THE ETTES... love their stuff!)

For the lesson, I am going to use the lesson as it is formatted in the manual. I am adding a few things, I loved the talk by Elder Wirthlin which was referred to in the resource guide. It is Joseph B. Wirthlin, “Come What May, and Love It,” Ensign and Liahona, Nov. 2008, 26–28. So I will be using that. There is a video on you tube with a link to part of his talk.  It is really good.  But, I fell in love with this clip instead.  It really inspired me and because I have Laurels, I thought it would help them to see that you can CHOSE how you react, you can CHOSE your attitude in times of trial!

This was a great lesson for me to be able to prepare.  I have been in a bit of a slump (aren't we all at times!?)  It is just another reason why I am so blessed to be in Young Womens!  I get to prepare lessons that help me as much as I hope I am helping them!

Family Feud Activity

We did a joint activity with the Young Men tonight and it was FUN!  We hooked our computer up to a projector and used a template like this one to make a Family Feud game, complete with sound effects!  I think the kids thought it was fun!  We used the questions found on Mormon Share HERE so it was super fun to have them be LDS based!  We rigged just one answer...the temples.  Since we have so many here in Utah, we added Draper to the survey.  I think it was an overall success.  But, mostly because I have an awesome presidency who helps make our activities fun!

YW in Excellence Thank you card

We had YW in Excellence this week and it was WONDERFUL!  It was so fun to have everyone there.  I will blog pictures and show you the AwEsOmE candy bar my leaders did.  I can't believe how much work each one of them did!  Here is a jpeg of the Thank you card I am going to attach to a little jar of candy for them.  You could use it for your leaders if you wanted.... I left a little circle with lines so I could write a personal note on each one as well!  The digi art is from Ettes and Company and I was going to put a real rhinestone on the center of the flowers!
