Oh, the Places You'll Go! New Beginnings

We had a FANTASTIC New Beginnings last night. Our theme was based on the Dr. Seuss book "Oh, the Places You'll Go!"

The invitation:

This is what the room looked like:

Each girl participated in some way (some with decorations, others with speaking parts). We had an AWESOME guest speaker. She is a musician and has written mostly EFY music. She connected so well with the girls. The best part of the night was her performing an original song, written for our New Beginnings that had "Oh, the Places You'll Go" in the title, but she tied it in to Stand in Holy Places.

We gave each girl crazy Seuss-like socks to remind them to always let their feet take them to holy places.

The socks:

The girls LOVED the socks. They put them on right away and some were willing to pose for me.

I got the socks from Target. Here are the files for invitations and sock label:

Individual Worth #7

In November, we worked on Individual Worth #7. A professional photographer in our ward came and spoke to the girls about photography and camera basics. The girls loved her presentation! Then the girls, one at a time, stood with their back to the chalkboard while the other Young Women and leaders wrote positive qualities about each girl. The photographer then took a picture of the girl. The chalkboard was erased before the girl could see what was written. It wasn't until after the photo was printed and framed (and given to each girl as a Christmas gift), that the Young Women got to see what was written about them.

You were "mint" to succeed--Junior Mints

Every now and then I hand out "reminders" to the girls to keep working on Personal Porgress. Here is the one from November:
