Stand as a Witness UNO Cards Handouts

These UNO cards were at the party supply store and I just couldn't resist!  They were so cute!  I did a lesson on our theme so that maybe the girls would feel more when they recite it each week.  I used these UNO cards as a handout.  You can use UNO cards for ANY lesson though.  You can say "UNO you are a daughter of God",  "UNO to eat carrots daily", etc. etc.  There is also an UNO candy bar you can use as well!

LDS Young Women Lesson #33 Handout..The sacred power of Procreation

I got the idea for this handout from Sugardoodle.net and then added my own "spin" to it!  To make the frog, I just googled a picture of a frog to color and then printed 2 copies.  I cut the whole body from one and the legs from the other and then paper pieced them together with green cardstock.  For the eyes, I cut 2 white circles and used little black rhinestones in the center.  I also outlined the whole thing with a black felt tip pen.  Super cute!  When I gave these to my Laurels, they laughed.  I made the (not so funny) joke that I thought it should be more that you don't need to "pet" every frog to find a prince but thought their parents may find that an inappropriate handout!  Hope someone can use this to make their lesson easier :)

Reflections of Christ video

The VERY first thing I would love to share with you is probably the most moving video I have EVER seen. I love this video from MARK MABRY. I love this song. USE THIS IN A LESSON. It will bring the spirit QUICKLY. How could it not? You can see it on you tube but he also sells the dvd... www.reflectionsofchrist.org

My LDS Life...

Religion is a subject I have thought to shy away from.  But, the fact of the matter is, it is a MAJOR part of who I am.  I have tried to keep a personal blog and just have a hard time talking about all things personal when it comes to my life and my kids. So... here we are with an LDS blog.  My motive here is simple.  It is to SHARE my ideas with others who may benefit from some of my sleepless nights coming up with them!

I have been recently called to be Young Women's President.  This calling came just 3 1/2 years after I decided to re-activate in the church after a 16 year break (a story I am sure I may share in the future).  I hope to share with you my thoughts and ideas with this journey along with my files for things I have made and my handouts (I LOVE to make them!)  My hope is that there may be other Young Women leaders who will find our ideas an easy thing to copy (making your life and nights of sleep much better!)

Thanks for stopping by... I hope you will find an idea or two!
