Why Is It Important For Me To Gain An Education And Develop Skills? (Part 2)

Get this week's lesson here.
If you want to check out how I presented this lesson last year, you can find it here.

There are some great videos I found on the LDS site.  For some reason they didn't have any suggested with the lesson plan.  So if you're a video lover like me, here was one of my favorites...

I know I need to get better about less ME-TIME teaching and more GIRLS-TIME discussing.  Something that went surprisingly well this week was assigning each young woman a paragraph under Education in FOR THE STRENGTH OF YOUTH.  Then I gave them the opportunity to lead their own discussions about their paragraphs and they did awesome!  They applied it to their own lives and gave each other advice and it was just... awesome.

I decided this year that I wanted to make the girls an education "dream board" where they could hang anything that would motivate them to be enthusiastic about learning.  WARNING!  WARNING!  WARNING!  Chicken wire is EVIL.  Please wear work gloves when handling it so you don't look like you were playing patty-cake with Edward Scissorhands.  Found that one out the hard way.

I searched Pinterest for a bunch of great motivational pictures and LDS education quotes that the girls could choose between to add to their individual board.

My inspiration behind making the dream boards came from here.  It gives you directions how to build it and everything!  So awesome!  I ended up buying long wood stakes from Home Depot for the frames that were about 30 cents each!  AMAZING!!!

YW in Excellence 2014

I love my calling.  These young women are absolutely amazing.  I feel so honored to be bumping shoulders with these spiritual giants.  For anyone who has a calling with the youth or the primary, I'm pretty sure we're all gonna die someday and when the veil is lifted and we remember where we all came from, we will feel so humbled knowing that we had the opportunity to mingle with such a valiant, chosen generation.

For YW in excellence this year we put together a quick slideshow to watch after the program was over.  Such a fun group of girls!

P.S. The LDS YOUTH website always has great free music available to download if you ever need slideshow song ideas.
