November Lesson #3
This Power Point covers:
"Why is work an important gospel principle?"
Next time your kids complain about chores...you can remind them that work is a commandment! :) This is a great lesson that gives the girls the "why" behind work. Work and teenagers don't always mix but this lesson will hopefully show the YW that work is essential to happiness.
I used all of the talks in the lesson outline as well as a 2007 New Era article entitled "Good Work" by Elder Oveson of the Seventy.
I did not include a place to watch the video but feel free to include it. If you don't use it in this lesson its a great FHE video. It talks about being "easily guided" and doing what is asked of us.
Have a great lesson!
YW November Lesson #1
This Power Point covers:
"What does it mean to be self reliant?"
The game of Life was one of my family's favorite growing up! What job would I get? Would I get married? Would I have children, would I be wealthy? These questions were fun and exciting while playing a game, but when its real life it shouldn't be left to chance. This was my basis for the handout...
Becoming self reliant now as youth, these young women will be able to set their own course for their lives. True, we can never predict or control the future, but basing our lives on the guidelines set by the gospel of Jesus Christ will ensure true success and true eternal victory!
Have a great lesson

November: "Spiritual and Temporal Self Reliance" Outline
This Power Point Covers:
"What is the Lord's way for providing for the poor & needy?"
"How can I find solutions to my challenges and problems?"
This is another lesson I loved preparing! I truly feel the "Come Follow Me" curriculum is so inspired and provides a great environment for learning. I hope these Power Points help you as a leader provide opportunities for the girls to share their thoughts. Towards the end of this lesson I included an opportunity for the girls to split into small groups to search through a New Era or Ensign for answers to problems facing youth. I hope each girl will feel comfortable sharing her ideas. Feel free to adjust for your individual classes. For a handout, I planned on printing the "Scriptural Directory Assistance" This was produced in 2006 my Tressa Edmunds. I have retyped it because my original copy was a bit blurry. ;) My hope is that the girls come away from this lesson understanding their role in the Welfare of others and the importance in serving like Christ. I also hope they will realize how much they are loved NO MATTER WHAT! That the Lord is always there to help them. No one should feel like they are weathering the storms of this life alone, especially these beautiful Young Women. I want them to try to pray, read the scriptures, and to study the words of the prophets during their times of trial. Good luck with your lessons! ;)
November: "Spiritual & Temporal Self Reliance" Outline
This Power Point Covers:
"Why is work an important gospel principle"
"Why does the Lord want me to be healthy?"
Self Reliance isn't exactly one of those topics that makes the girls sit up straight and listen! I wanted to make sure I held their attention. This is one of the reasons I love using the Power Points. The girls are usually very good about focusing on the screen and reading from the screen. This lesson is one I found super important. I really, really want the girls to understand the importance of gaining an education, working hard and preparing for their futures. Also, being healthy in both mind and body is crucial. I remember being a young woman and was never quite happy with my appearance. Heck, I'm a grown woman and I still battle that! (stupid thighs ;) Anyway, I did not show any videos this week. Surprising I know. Feel free to add that to your lesson plan if you'd like.
**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!
