President Monson quote card

I printed the handout, cut out individual sections and then glued it to the back of the 3×4 picture of President Monson.  I purchased the pictures for less than $0.50 at either Seagull or Deseret Book. The picture of President Monson was taken at General Conference of his profile with a warm smile. In addition to scriptures from…

Group wall post by Jenny Smith

By Jenny Smith Jenny Smith : #dandc50 #dandc84 #dandc88 #moroni7 This is the first of a video series featuring Elder Bednar talking about the Light of Christ and other patterns/symbolic use of light. The third video is good for #dandc8 and compares receiving revelation to a sunrise. The second video addresses how a person can know if their feelings come from within themselves or if it is revelation or communication…

Stinking Thinking

Lesson 41 – The ability to Succeed 


A couple weeks ago I got to have a “girls weekend” with some family- it was great! lots of food, fun, laughing, Just Dance and Pictures……… ha that’s the best part- we have to document all of our fun, & upload it to facebook, instagram etc BUT after each picture I heard 
“Ok let me look at it”, “Delete”, “I look fat”, “My hair looks 

Stinking Thinking

dumb” “Eww look at my face”,
” I hate pictures”, “I look so ugly” & that was not just the girls, us adults, (well me) were doing it.  What is wrong with us?  Why do we have to pick ourselves apartThen

 “Stop it” 

came into my mind, from President Uchtdorf talk during General Conference 

Stop tearing ourselves down
Stop picking out all the things we don’t like about ourselves
Stop looking for imperfections 
Stop comparing yourself to everyone else
STOP IT!!

We are daughters of a Heavenly Father who loves us, and we love him….
We say this every Sunday and yet we still pick at ourselves and compare ourselves to everyone (we think) that looks better then us.  

Each day we are faced with our own and others’ traits and attributes. Often we judge ourselves against those we see. Unfortunately, we usually think mostly of others’ strengths and our weaknesses. We wish we were as tall, as thin, as well dressed, as pretty, as talented, as smart, or as spiritual as someone else—and the list goes on in our minds. Each time we see ourselves in such a limiting, unrealistic way, we damage our self-image and fail to benefit from our own strengths and talents. We can especially damage how we see ourselves if our peer group has set the standards and we feel we are not meeting them

D&C 18:10
10 Remember the aworth of bsouls is great in the sight of God;

Not “Remember the worth of Souls is great in the sight of God;” except you, or except my hair color, my hair, my toes, my legs etc.

Stinking Thinking


He created us- All of us, every part of us



Each one of us is different, have different gifts, different talents- I liken this to my shoes ha ha

Stinking Thinking


Each pair is different, I need every pair I have, would I wear my hiking boots to prom? would I wear my stilettos on a hike?
NO
each have its own unique purpose!

So it is in our Heavenly Fathers kingdom- he needs each of us to be different from each other- because he has different purposes for us.
Point out that we do not all have the same talents, abilities, or potential, but each of us has something that we can do well. We need to find our own unique qualities and build on them. We need to have sufficient confidence in ourselves that we can improve. We can begin by thinkingthat we can succeed.

So lets
Stop it with all the Stinking Thinking!

ACTIVITY-
Do some Personal Progress- (you don’t have to tell them)
Have them bring one of their shoes that they feel represents their own personality- and chat about how each shoe has it’s own unique purpose- it would be a great time to just finish

Personal Progress
Individual Worth #7

Heavenly Father has given you special gifts. Read 1 Corinthians 12:4–1213;Moroni 7:12–1310:8–18; and Doctrine and Covenants 46:11–26. Ask a family member, a Young Women leader, and a friend to write down positive qualities the Lord has given you. List your gifts in your journal, and write how you can continue to develop these gifts and use them to serve your family and others. 
a great activity to go along with this could be this

Primary Talks

I skipped up the dusty drive, past the gray stone houses nestled in bright purple blossoms, and into the open doorway. Mother pushed back her damp hair and set a bucket of muddy water down. It was Monday, the day she washed the walls and rinsed away the dirt that blew in with the winds. Monday was also important because of family home evening. My brothers, Chris and Trenton, and…

Gratitude Activities
