On Sunday we had our New Beginnings. That's where we have any girls that will be coming into Young Women's this year come and learn about Young Women's. We also talk about what we're going to be doing this year and try and set some goals. This years mutual theme is "Arise and shine forth that thy light may be a standard to the nations'' D&C 115:5.
I knew my friend Lauren's huge light bulbs (that she so graciously loaned me) would be perfect to use for a decoration and I also knew (because of her instagrams) that this other gal had a collection of globes that she so willingly let us borrow. Isn't that awesome.
Add Angela's amazing lettering skills combined with a chalkboard marker (found at Hobby Lobby) and you got some awesome decorations.
Jessica, Angela, and I all took turns talking about the light of Christ: how to get in our lives and how to share it with others. We used the idea of nations as a way to lead into our Young Women in Excellence that will be at the end of the year, which will be a world's fair. We are going to encourage the girls to learn about their ancestors and where they came from so that at the worlds fair we can share what we have learned with each other.
