My ideas go along with the "2015 Theme Posters" found here on my website. The "Embark" theme is so fun and can easily be a base for your New Beginnings theme.
New Beginnings is an activity designed to introduce the upcoming Beehives and their parents to the Personal Progress program. I have included 2 awesome talks below that do a wonderful job of outlining the PP program. The first talk lists 5 reasons to LOVE Personal Progress. The 5 reasons are a fun way to introduce the importance of the PP program. I have made a little handout that you could give to the Beehives if you like. It centers around the "hiking/Adventure/Journey" theme coordinating with the 2015 scripture "O ye that embark..."
I think its fun to have some of the older girls get involved. They can help introduce each value and maybe tell a favorite goal or experience they have completed in each value. This keeps things interesting, it involves the older girls and it gives the beehives and parents an idea of what completing the goals might look like.
Here are the two AWESOME talks that you can use:
Five Reasons to Love Personal Progress - New Era Nov. 20...Why Personal Progress just might be one of the most important things you choose to do as a teenager.
What’s New in Personal Progress? - New Era Jan. 2010 - n...The Young Women Personal Progress program takes on a new look with some new additions.
For November we get to choose a message from the October General Conference talks. It's always a tough decision since there are so many wonderful messages shared.
One of my favorite was:
"Receiving A Testimony Of Light & Truth"
by President Uchtdorf
I have posted 3 different quotes from this wonderful talk.
November Lesson #2
This Power Point covers:
"How will I know if I am becoming converted?
To what degree are we converted? It is a good question for all of us. Conversion doesn't mean we know all there is to know about the scriptures and the gospel...it does however mean that we are working. We must continually work hard to gain and grow our testimony. With conversion comes true happiness. Conversion is a life long process. This is the basic idea of the handout.
For the slides I used quotes from Elder Bednar, & Sister Oscarson's talks. Both are in the lesson outline. I also used information found in the "True to the Faith" book. Another article I used was entitled "10 Ways To Know You Are Converted" by Tyler Orton.
Both videos are awesome! I used the video entitled
“A Mighty Change: Conversion” in a previous lesson so preview it to make sure you haven't show it to your class. The “Waiting on the Road to Damascus” is equally as awesome!!! It's a tough choice!
Have a great lesson,

Yw Lesson Help
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!
