A Brand New Year

The youth did a great job on the Brand New Year Fireside.
We started with the intro to the New YW/YM theme (Joshua 1:9) from the DVD

Then taught everyone the new "Be Strong" song! Which everyone loved!! It is a great can download the sheet music or the instrumental onto your ipod.

Next youth gave talks about the standards from the Strength of the Youth and did a fabulous job! I loved the testimonies they bore and personal experiences they told us about.

We closed the meeting with the end of the DVD from the General Presidencies of the YM/YW.

And enjoyed sundaes for refreshments.

Check out the Brand New Year website.

New Beginnings Idea

This looks so cute! I love the idea.
It is all about a girl who gains 8 values (Personal Progress) and what she learns along the way.
I hope everyone is having fun with New Beginnings. Good luck with Personal Progress this year.

December Service

holidays youth

This really helped me get into the spirit of Christmas. It was a great service project at a local Nursing home. The kids prepared a few musical numbers: harmonica by Jodie and guitar by President Jensen and Jodie. Sarah played the piano for us and Blaine did a fabulous job conducting the entire group.

There were even chimes that we paired off with the residents and helped them sing some of the songs. It was a highlight of the year.

YW in Excellence


Our YW are excellent

This is long overdue. But thanks to our fabulous secretary we have a fun collage of pictures to share from the event.

The YW performed in a play written by Sister Sherman about returning to virtue complete with props, costumes and musical numbers throughout!

President Jensen spoke to us about virtue and everything was covered in GOLD.

It was a great celebration of the new value-VIRTUE

The YW made a huge chain of virtue connected to each other. It was a great night!
