September YW Lesson Helps - How Do I Guard My Virtue?
12 Yea, I know that I am nothing; as to my strength I am weak; therefore I will not boast of myself, but I will boast of my God, for in his strength I can do all things; yea, behold, many mighty miracles we have wrought in this land, for which we will praise his name forever.

Guardians of Virtue
The lesson outline asked the following questions: Consider how living a virtuous life brings peace to you. What effects does pornography have on the world and on families? How have you been a guardian of virtue?
How might young women’s language, actions, and appearance affect others? How might young women be exposed to pornography? What gospel principles and preventive measures can help them keep their thoughts and actions pure?
I did not add a slide for these questions but I think they are excellent points to address and ways to start valuable conversations. Teachers could ask these questions to the girls and allow them to share their experiences with the class.
Both of the videos above are wonderful. Choose whichever is most appropriate for your girls.
The handout comes from the scripture in Proverbs 31:10. Focusing on a virtuous woman having worth far above rubies. I thought you could tie the handout to a small bag of red candies (gumballs, cherry drops, hot tamales etc). (see example below)
Have a wonderful lesson!
Parenthood is a Sacred Duty
*pictures are from the media files on lds.org.
There were so many beautiful pictures of Mothers loving their children on lds.org. I thought it would be impactful to have a collage showing daily opportunities we have to show our love. It is so easy to get caught up in the craziness of this life. We are all so busy. This month's message is such a great reminder about what is truly important.
Susan W. Tanner, former Young Women general president, taught: “Our Father in Heaven exemplifies the pattern we should follow. He loves us, teaches us, is patient with us, and entrusts us with our agency. … Sometimes discipline, which means ‘to teach,’ is confused with criticism. Children—as well as people of all ages—improve behavior from love and encouragement more than from fault-finding.”
**Please Note: Due to different versions of power point the slides may need to be adjusted after you download them. Please go through the power point before your lesson to make sure the pictures and the text are formatted correctly! I just opened a file I made using my laptop with my iPad and the font was different, colors were different and some of the pictures were in the wrong place. It may take a little tweeking! :)**
I'm a 36 year old Mom of 4 kiddos, 3 boys (12, 4 & 2 years old) and one little princess (9). I have an awesome hubby who puts up with my craziness...He supports me when I spend way too much time on my YW lessons. I started this blog for fun and have been so excited to watch it grow and watch others being able to use the Power Point lessons, handouts and other ideas I have posted. Thank you for stopping by!
