Weekly Personal Progress Reminders

Jenny, Here are some handout things to help YW leaders to encourage their girls to work on Personal Progress weekly.  I used the suggested Personal Progress goal from the Resource Guide the church publishes on lds.org…. most lessons have a personal progress goal that will correlate with the topic but a few don’t…So if I’m missing a lesson that is why, also I started with the the lesson my ward…

Jenny, Attached is a YW activities Roll sheet for leaders to print to keep roll at their activites. This roll will help them track what activities help fulfill the Personal Progress girls and what girls were in attendance to fulfill that goal.  As I am very new to this YW leader calling, and I do not know very much about your website….I’m not sure what section of your website this…

Young Women in Excellence Talk

This talk is 5 years old and was given by our then Young Women president.  I loved it so much I asked her for a copy.  It’s reproduced below and it’s available in printable PDF form: Young Women in Excellence Talk At the end of every year, the young women of the church gather for Young Women in Excellence. This event is similar to a Scout Court of Honor. It is…

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…

UP2U Gum Tags for Personal Progress & Visiting Teaching


I am always on the look-out for new ways to get the YW excited to do Personal Progress. One day while we were at the grocery store I saw a pack of UP2U gum and had an idea for a Personal Progress treat.

UP2U Gum Tags for Personal Progress & Visiting Teaching


I created this little handout that you can tape to a pack of UP2U gum to encourage the YW to keep working on their Personal Progress.

The front flap of the printable says:

UP2U Gum Tags for Personal Progress & Visiting Teaching

Lift up the front flap and you’ll see:

On the back I added a great quote I found from Sister Elaine Dalton. 

Hopefully a good quote and some yummy gum can get those YW excited about Personal Progress…fingers crossed. :)
UP2U Gum Tags for Personal Progress & Visiting Teaching


While my Mom was visiting us a few weeks ago I showed her my UP2U gum idea and she loved it. She then said, ‘You should make one for Visiting Teaching.’ Hmmm…..why didn’t I think of that. So, I got to work & created one for Visiting Teaching.

UP2U Gum Tags for Personal Progress & Visiting Teaching

As I was looking for quotes about Visiting Teaching I saw one from Bonnie D. Parkin that said, “We don’t ‘do’ Visiting Teaching. We ‘are’ Visiting Teachers.”

So, I decided to type

“Being a Visiting Teacher Is…” instead of “Doing Visiting Teaching Is…”


These would be great to handout out to your Relief Society sisters at the beginning of the month or at a Visiting Teaching activity.

To create your own UP2U Treats…
1. Print out my UP2U Gum Labels (link below)
2. Cut them out
3. Fold on the dotted/dashed lines
{the label will go around the pack of gum}
4. Tape/Glue the back of the printable (where the quote is) to the back of the pack of gum. You can also add a small piece of tape/glue onto the top of the pack of gum.
5. Fold over the top flap
6. Hand out to your YW or RS Sisters and Enjoy!
{I added a strip of Washi tape to the front to keep the front flap down. You can do this or not.}

I hope you enjoy my UP2U Gum Labels and use them for your YW or RS sisters.

Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting my blog.

Have a wonderful day!
