Young Women In Excellence

I love working with the 12-18 year old girls in my ward (church). They are such amazing young women and my calling helps keep my focused on what is important. We had a Young Women In Excellence program last month that focused on the girls achieving their Personal Progress so they can marry in the temple. It was a spiritual night.

This was one of the leader's wedding gowns. All of the leaders displayed pictures of them at the temple. If you look behind the dress, the girls got to pick a picture of their favorite temple on a hanger to put in their closet as a reminder to dress modestly.

Each girl received a "Temple Can" containing quotes and other fun things that they are to look at to remind them of their goals.

The girls took turns talking about items they brought (such as temple pictures or Personal Progress projects). There were also some speakers who talked about the blessings that have come into their lives from attending the temple. I hope the girls enjoyed it and will avoid getting sucked into the pressures of the world and focus on what will bring lasting happiness.

Do you have the label you printed for the can that you could share?

Karen, one of the leaders made them. I'm not sure where she bought the molds.
