Being Dependable by Laurel C

Laurel C shared the following : “I made these handouts for this week and last week’s lessons (lesson 40, Loving ourselves and others and 41 Being dependable) I took these pictures myself, so there is no copyright issues. Thanks so much for your website.” The images have the quotes “Let us not be nearly dependable but always dependable” and “Loving yourself is being able to look past the flaws and…

Divine Nature 6 Gratitude Challenge for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is so soon! (Which means Christmas is right around the corner!) I’ve been thinking a lot about what it means to be grateful, and while I’m not the kind to proclaim my gratitude on Twitter and Facebook, I still love reading about the gratit…

Patriarchal Blessing Scripture Template

I love the idea of having your patriarchal blessing formatted to match the scriptures. I saw this idea on Pinterest awhile ago, but all the links I found were broken, so I decided to create a template of my own. It only took a few minutes for me, so I…

Scriptural Women of Value Posters | Free Download

 

I love the countless examples of women in the scriptures. Many claim that there aren’t enough women in the scriptures, and while their claims are certainly valid, I see so much depth in the few portraits of women we have the privilege of finding in our scriptures.

Quite a few have seen my series of value posters with Disney Princesses, and several people have mentioned that they would love to see value posters pulling role models from the scriptures. The idea excited me, as it was in fact directly correlated with a project I’ve been working on for the past several months, and so I focused my personal study on seeking out the righteous examples we’ve been given in scripture and finding the values they emulate.

 

As a disclaimer in advance, I do not own the copyright to any of the paintings used. These posters are only for non-commercial home and church use. I make no profit whatsoever from these posters. I did my best to search the copyright of the individual paintings to see that I would be able to use these images for this small, non-profit project. That being said, I found each one of these paintings to beautifully reflect the divine spirits depicted in the scriptures of each of these women.

 

Each poster is available as a JPG file, and the set can be downloaded as PDFs. They are only intended to be printed 8.5 x 11, or smaller.

Your Happily Ever After by Dieter F. Uchtdorf Video featuring Disney Princesses + Free Handout

In case regular visitors of this website haven’t noticed, I absolutely love fairy tales being used as metaphors for the gospel. Something that certainly aided in this love for fairy tales is that one of my very first experiences in Young Women’s was w…

Young Women Value Posters

I recently saw a post on By Common Consent where a Church member had created some alternate Young Women posters with quotes from a variety of different female leaders.  I liked the idea — a lot — and I appreciated her thoughts on the cute-ifying of YW activities. However, I was disappointed that of the 16 posters, only 5 had quotes from LDS women.  I’m sometimes annoyed when we behave…

Mothers Day Activity / Childcare Seminar

Downloaded from: http://ldsywideasandactivities.blogspot.com/2014/04/mothers-day-activity-childcare-seminar.html Every year (on a Wednesday night close to Mother’s Day), we have a special activity when Moms are invited to attend Mutual with the Young Women. In the past we have usually played games and done makeovers, that sort of thing. This year, our Beehive class presidency has planned an all-girls (joint) Mothers Day activity that is a little different. When planning our Mutual activities, one of…

Gal-Entine’s Day Party Activity

Downloaded from: http://ldsywideasandactivities.blogspot.com/2014/02/galentines-day-party-activity.html Most of our youth are preparing for an upcoming music festival youth conference, so those kids (who will be 14 or older by the conference this summer) have singing practices for 2 mutual activities each month. Since these happen on our regular combined ym/yw or class activity nights, these either leave the younger beehives with nothing to do and/or leave the older yw (who choose not to…

Say Yes To The Dress / Project Runway Modesty Activity

Downloaded from: http://ldsywideasandactivities.blogspot.com/2014/02/say-yes-to-dress-project-runway-modesty.html This week we had an all-girls activity planned by the Beehive class. We borrowed heavily from the Sisters in Zion blog where I saw the original idea, “Say Yes to the Dress”. We did our activity differently, but the wedding dress making contest idea was the same. Check out the original activity idea by clicking on the photo (from the post on the Sisters in Zion site)…

2 Peter 1-3, Ladder-Day Saints

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/05/06/2-peter-1-3-ladder-day-saints/ We began by having the Young Women recite the Young Women’s Theme. Then I asked the students to look for one of the values that Peter mentions in 2 Peter 1:1-4. Once they identified “divine nature”, I asked them to explain what it meant. It was surprising to them that they did not really understand what “divine […]
