 Have joy in your heart by JayeLyn Whipple Galbasini
 I am divine by Tiersa Ludlow
I am having 3 women come in that are all at different stages of their life: single, married w/o children, and married with children. They will all take a few minutes to talk about finding joy in their lives as a woman of God. We will talk about joy and finding joy now (2 Ne 2:13, 25). I also might work in the story, "The Precious Present". Here is a quote from that story: "The present is simply who I am just the way I am...right now. And it is precious."  (Idea by Aubrey Lindblom / LDS YW Yahoo Group)
If I can find mirrors that aren't too expensive I'm going to glue them to a foam heart so that they can remember that the Lord looks upon the heart not on the outside and at the end hand out a scripture with that. OR I am going to make up cardstock that says JOY except the letters will be big in large font, the other letters much smaller, but look kind of like this. Jesus Others You to remind us to find true joy we need to focus on Jesus first, then Others, then You (ourselves). (Idea by Kristine)

 Three Exemplary Sister by Rachele Ellsworth


 As I was preparing to teach Young Women Lesson #5, I remembered hearing a seminary song, the words of which go well with this lesson and the next few lessons. It actually probably goes best with Lesson #8, "Attitudes about Our Divine Roles". The song is called "To Bring Them to Thee". The sheet music can be found on the church's website (click here). (Idea by Lee Ann Tebbs / ga01202009)

PERSONAL PROGRESS HELPS: These Personal Progress Goals pertain to the lesson.  You could encourage the girls to work on one of these goals in the coming week.
