A Brand New Year 2010

A Brand New Year will be coming again in 2010....the title has the link with ALL the information. It is a fun DVD with dancing, talks and other music to introduce the 2010 mutual theme.
"Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest" Joshua 1:9


Thank you all for attending the YW Leadership Meeting this year. We were so blessed to hear from Sister Cook who did just a fabulous job and really taught with the spirit. We are so grateful for all you do in your units and are blessed to know and work with you.

Here are two of the recipes that were served

Apple Brittle:
1 package of cream cheese (warm slightly and the texture will be creamy)
Beat together with 1/4 cup white sugar + 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
10 oz of health bar
serve with sliced apples

Broccoli cheddar soup:
4 quarts water
12 chicken bouillon cubes
7 heads of broccoli chopped~boil for several minutes
(you can add grated carrots with sauteed onions)
reduce heat
in a separate sauce pan melt 3 cubes of butter and mix 1 1/2 cups flour in the melted butter~mix it well first before adding it to the soup or it will be really clumpy!
add cheese whiz-15 oz and mix well
let simmer
serve with bread bowls or alone and top with cheddar cheese

Selected YW Music

If you have not seen this list of music just for the YW check it out! just click on the title.

You can download music to your ipod or download the sheet music~very cool...these are some of my favorites.
Learning the Young Women songs can bring many blessings into your life. These songs can help you invite the Spirit into your home and into Young Women meetings, learn important gospel truths, increase your joy, and be "an influence for good that helps you draw closer to Heavenly Father" (For the Strength of Youth, 20). Elder Russell M. Nelson has taught: "It really matters what you listen to. . . . Select music that will strengthen your spirit" ("Self-Mastery," Ensign, Nov. 1985, 32).

Stake Family Event

Dancing through the Decades....

the family stake event started at 4:00pm and ran until started with 40's music and each hour changed to another decade. There was lots of dancing, really great refreshments and families had a wonderful time at the stake center dancing the day away!

These YW did it all!!! What a great idea for a laurel project. It involved so many people and families throughout the stake and everyone enjoyed themselves. They made posters, gave out assignments for cleanup and setup, they involved the YM. With this activity under their belts they are now ready to graduate and move onto to bigger events!!!

Thank you so much Aimee and Kassey~you are both great leaders! Great job.

more food and more dancing....Brother Sykes did the music and there was even a slide show of pictures and events from each era...the decorations covered the entire gym and tables were setup in the back for people to sit down, visit as well as eat.
