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.

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!!!


  1. Love this! Your board turned out awesome. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thank you so much Jillian! It was fun seeing the girls' reaction when they got theirs ;)
