The young women in our ward were REALLY excited about our theme for YW in excellence this year. We decided upon "Seek the Sweet"...A "Candy Theme" that focused on all things "sweet" to the young and their lives. For the program each of the girls talked about the "Sweetness of the Young Woman Values" (For instance, one girl spoke on the "sweetness of faith" one girl spoke on the "sweetness of virtue", and so on.) After the girls had shared their experiences, I wrapped up the evening by talking about 3 thing we can do as YW to "Seek the Sweet". 1. Seeking the sweetness of setting goals (tied into personal progress) 2. Seeking the sweetness of the temple and 3. Seeking the sweetness of Heavenly Father's love.
The night turned out awesome. Not only was it a spiritual experience for the girls, but the decorations turned out adorable as well. We created a candy bar for the refreshments which included gourmet cupcakes, sugar cookies, cake balls, and other sweet treats. And decorated the room with tons of "sweet" looking items.
