Man of Might Printable

IMG_7264Hi friends,
Today is my oldest son’s fifth birthday.  I cannot believe that he is 5!  Time just goes so fast, right?!   He is just the best of kids and I love his sweet, perceptive, and intense personality.  Like most moms do, I worry about him as well as my other two sons.  I worry about the type of trials they will have.  I worry about how they are treating others.  I worry and pray that I am doing enough to teach them and to help build their testimonies. There are so many things I want for them to know.  Besides the basics of laundry, picking up after yourself, and how to treat others, (especially girls, gulp) I desperately want them to know who they truly are as Sons of God.  President Monson worded it perfectly with this quote in the latest priesthood session, and I KNEW I wanted it displayed in each of my boys rooms with their picture and baby blessing outfit.
Even though two out of the three are not able to read yet, this quote also helps me remember who these boys really are.  They aren’t really mine.  They have been entrusted to me to raise them to be “men of might.”  When I am tempted to lose my temper with them, or when I am just plain burned out, this quote helps me remember how I should be treating them, and gives me the strength to be a better mama.

ManofMight-Listing-02This printable is perfect to be displayed in any boys room, in an office space, or to be given as a gift to your missionary. You can find this printable here for $2.50.  It comes in 2 sizes, 8×10 and 5×7.

Be Deliberate – FREE printable!

BeDeliberate

Hi friends,
You guys, summer is here! I love the freedom that summer time brings. If you are like me, you are SO ready to relax!  This mama is TIRED and ready for a break! Maybe it’s the heat, or maybe it’s the lack of routine, but something about summertime just makes me want to do a whole lot of nothing.

Of course, doing a lot of relaxing can be a good thing, and is occasionally vital and necessary.  However, I often find myself in a bit of a rut during summer.  For me, the problem boils down to becoming too relaxed, in all areas of my life.  Like I said, I am TIRED and just plain burned out.  I feel like I deserve a break.   I’m not alone in this, right?

BeDeliberate-4x6The answer for me is knowing that I need to be more deliberate in my daily choices.  In his latest conference address, President Monson said, “It has been said that the door of history turns on small hinges, and so do people’s lives.”  There are many things that I need to be more deliberate about. To help motivate me, I have created this PRINTABLE to help remind me of what choices I need to make to be more deliberate in my life.  It includes an 8×10 sign, as well as a 4×6 card to write what you would like to be more deliberate about. Honestly, I have a laundry list a mile long to work on (who doesn’t right?), but I am just going to work on one goal  at a time.  What are some things you need to be deliberate about?

LDS YW Girls Camp Pillow Treat Tags
Does your ward do pillow treats, or tuck-in treats?  The idea is to give each girl a little treat on her pillow or sleeping bag before bed. With all of you in mind, I have created these super fun Pillow Treat Printable Tags.  These colorfully retro tags can be used as pillow treats, or can be used to give out during devotionals.  They also can work great as secret sister gifts. There are 24 different tags to choose from and include a variety of options for treats, including some healthier options.  I also love that some of the quotes are fun, and others are more spiritual in nature.  You can choose to buy the tags individually, or choose one of the packages for BIG savings.  I have even created an Ultimate Bundled Kit that includes all 24 tags at a super discounted price! The bundled package works perfect for Stake Leaders! No matter what you are looking for I have just what you are looking for!  And you are in luck, because I am offering all you readers a free pillow treat printable tag with the purchase of 3!  Just use coupon code SDFREE at checkout.

Young Women Come Follow Me June Bundle Kit

Hi friends,
Have you seen our Young Women Come Follow Me printable kits?  These kits are a great way to enhance your lessons.  Each kit comes with different quotes, interactive handouts and activities from the lesson outlines.  These kits help you be prepared to have handouts ready for where the Spirit takes you in the lesson.  Each kit also comes with an introductory sign that is a great way to visually introduce the lesson to the girls. This month, we are offering all 5 printable lesson kits in a bundled package for $15.00!  That is more than $5 in savings vs. purchasing individually.  Awesome sauce, right?!  You can purchase the bundled package here.

JunePackage-Listing-01Want a closer look?  Here are some favorites from these printable kits:

JunePackage-Listing-02This printable from the lesson “What is the priesthood?” is great printable to use with the outline on lds.org, “Invite the young women to read the section titled “Priesthood Quorums” on page 125 of True to the Faith. What are the similarities between how Aaronic Priesthood quorums and young women classes are organized? What are the differences? Help the young women see that the women of the Church are organized after the pattern of the priesthood (see Daughters in My Kingdom: The History and Work of Relief Society [2011], 138).

JunePackage-ListingIndividual-02
This printable thank you card is from the lesson “What does it mean to sustain my church leaders?”  Using this printable is a great way for the Young Women to live what they are learning.  Have the young women thoughtfully think of someone that magnifies their calling.  Have them write a thank you card to that person.  Also included are circle tags that can be placed on a simple treat (goodie bag, candy bar, cupcake, etc.) to be given with the card.

 

JunePackage-ListingIndividual-02
This fantastic bookmark from the lesson, “How do I receive the power and blessings of the priesthood in my life?”. This is such a powerful quote, and with how colorful and visual it is, the young women you teach are sure to treasure it.
