Glitter Temple

Last spring I gave my YW a challenge to do a digital fast. You can see the details 

I was so excited, I had about 15 YW that followed through with the challenge!!
I forgot to post this earlier but Here is the little gift I gave those that finished

I bought a 10-pack of 8x10 canvas' from Michaels Craft store. It was $19.99  but I bought them when they were 50% off. Then just lightly traced a temple and modpodged glitter onto the canvas.

Come UNtO Christ

I introduced our YW to the 2014 theme on Sunday.
“Come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness” 

I saw a cute UNO birthday handout a while ago on Sugar Doodle (See HERE)

It was the inspiration for my lesson. 
I broke the Scripture down into a few different parts to go along with the UNO cards. 

Come Unto Christ
DRAW 2-  I asked the YW what that meant, and had them give ideas on how to do that. Their answers were great!!

Be perfect in Him
WILD CARD- "Jesus Christ is the perfect example of all eight Young Women values. As you work on Personal Progress, your efforts will help you become more like Him". (Rachel Nielsen)

Deny yourself all Ungodliness
SKIP- Skip sin. "While boulders surely block our way, loose gravel slows discipleship, too. Even a small stone can become a stumbling block". (Neal A Maxwell)


Draw 4- these are 4 goals I have given to my YW to accomplish this year. 

1- Memorize The Living Christ- In my previous post i have explained how we plan on doing that! 
2- a 90-day Book of Mormon Challenge- We will all start and stop on the same day!
3- a 5K we can do Hard things. I think this will help with Unity.
4- Attending the temple (1+ as a YW group, 1+ individual classes, 2+ on their own)

So for their B-days this year we are giving them a Mini Pack of UNO cards and a UNO Card. It will be in a cute little cellophane bag with this handout! I was going to use regular UNO cards but had no idea they were like $6 each so we went with the Mini ones I found on Amazon for about $1.25 each. I think this could also be a really cute conference treat!

Memorize: The Living Christ printable part 2

Here is a 2nd set up printables for memorizing The Living Christ

memorizing, The Living Christ printables

Here is a set of printables to help memorize the Living Christ 

challenge 1: memorize the living christ

I will be introducing the theme for the year on Sunday. I have 4 goals I am challenging to my YW for the year. The first one, is to memorize The Living Christ. I will be giving the girls each this frame. It is so cute, double sided, and cheap. They are at IKEA for 99 cents! On one side it will have the 2014 YW theme. On the other side it will have the section of the Living Christ that we will be memorizing for that month. I am giving the girls 6 months (which should be plenty of time) to memorize it! I think it will be a great testimony building opportunity for the girls!
This picture shows both sides of the gift
Here is a 2014 free printable
Here is my printable for January for memorizing the Living Christ
I have made 2 different sets of cards for this. Both are pretty basic but I think will be helpful.

One is bright and colorful found http://alittlecrafting.blogspot.com/2014/01/memorizing-living-christ-printables.html

and the other set is a little more subtle


I saw these frames as a Christmas gift on Marci Coombs Blog. and knew it would be perfect!( another idea: My SIL is giving them to her YW for their B-days).
