January Come Follow Me Printable Lesson Helps for Young Women

Hi friends,
This month’s theme for the Come Follow Me curriculum is The Godhead.  I LOVE teaching and learning about these things.  There are SO many simple truths that come from these lessons!  There have been countless times in my life where the knowledge that “I am a daughter of my Heavenly Father, who loves me” has brought me so much comfort and peace, and I know our Young Women desperately need this knowledge as well.

January Come Follow Me Young Women I LOVE all of these kits, and they are now available in a Bundled Pack! All FIVE lessons bundled into a discounted price!  You can find the Bundled Pack here.
Here are a few highlights from each of the printable lesson kits for this month.
January Come Follow Me - Nature of the Godhead
This 5×7 handout is from the lesson, “What do we know about the nature of the Godhead?” This kit also comes with other interactive handouts for the girls, as well as an ADORABLE Article of Faith printable. This printable kit can be found here

LDS YW Come Follow Me - How can I know my Heavenly Father?I am in LOVE with this printable from the lesson, “How can I know my Heavenly Father?”! What a great visual for the girls to really remember who they are!  This printable and kit can be found here.

Come Follow Me January - Who am I, and who can I become?For the lesson, “Who am I, and who can I become?” I made this kit to have a bit of a storybook theme, and LOVE all of the printables included.  You can find the kit here.

LDS YW Come Follow Me, What are the Roles of the Holy Ghost?

I think this is my FAVORITE printable from the entire month!  This tag is the PERFECT reminder to ASK, “What lack I yet?”  Since January is the month to set new goals, I love this reminder to ask Heavenly Father what He would have us do or change.  This printable tag is part of the printable kit from the lesson, “What are the roles of the Holy Ghost?” and can be found here.

 

All of these lessons can be purchased in the Bundled Pack found here.I hope these printables can help guide and inspire you in preparing and teaching your lessons this month!

ASK – Acquire Spiritual Knowledge – 2017 LDS Mutual Theme

2017 LDS Mutual Theme

Hi friends,
I wanted to share with you this AWESOME printable kit that can help with introducing the 2017 LDS Mutual theme.  The theme this year comes from James 1:5, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.”

I believe this theme is TRULY so inspired! There are so many different aspects of this profound and simple message.  As I thought about what to design to go along with this theme, the quote from Sister Julie B. Beck kept coming to mind, “The ability to qualify for, receive, and act on personal revelation is the single most important skill that can be acquired in this life.” I absolutely LOVE this quote, and think that it ties in PERFECTLY with the theme for this year. I decided to create this kit based on this quote, tying in the acronym, “ASK = Acquire Spiritual Knowledge,” and using a light bulb to represent knowledge.

The miracle of technology has absolutely changed the way we ask questions, and how we receive answers.  Most of the time, if we have a question, the answer can be easily found at our fingertips via the internet.  But spiritual questions cannot be asked or found answered the same manner.  These questions have to be asked in faith, and received by personal revelation.

You can use the theme of “ASK – Acquire Spiritual Knowledge” in SO many ways.  I like the idea of introducing the theme at the beginning of the year, and then enforcing the theme throughout the year with special firesides or 5th Sunday Lessons.  This way, you can focus on and highlight different aspects of Acquiring Spiritual Knowledge. (Prayer, Faith, Scripture Study, Temple Attendance, journaling to name a few). I created a few printables quotes that coordinate perfectly and can be used throughout the year as handouts, or can be used as decoration in your YW rooms.

“Pray, He is there. Speak, He is listening.” – I LOVE this line from “A Child’s Prayer” and  has been a great source of comfort during so many different times in my life.  I think this quote PERFECTLY embodies what it means to Ask of God, Ask in Faith.

“Believe, Nothing Wavering” – This quote comes from the second verse of the theme for the year, and it has profound meaning in so few words.

“Fourth Floor, Last Door” –  I think this was my FAVORITE quote from last General Conference!  It comes from Elder Uchtdorf’s talk from Women’s Session.  This quote hit home for me, and knew that I needed to have this quote included in this kit.

Each of us has either had very personal experiences with these quotes, or know someone who does.  Our youth NEED to hear these experiences.  Where appropriate, SHARE them!  Invite others to share them with your youth!  I believe the more that our youth hear DIFFERENT ways that others have Acquired Spritual Knowledge and subsequently how they have received personal revelation, the more they will be able to recognize how the spirit speaks to them in their own lives.

Along with the quotes, this kit comes with LOADS of additional coordinating printables to help enforce the theme including a Banner, YW Values Posters, YW Theme Poster, Gift Tags, Refreshment Toppers, Food Tent Labels, Treat Bag Toppers and SO MUCH MORE!  You can find this printable kit here.

I have LOVED creating this kit for you, and hope that it helps inspire you to ASK – Acquire Spiritual Knowledge.

Printable Locker Decor Quotes

IMG_7642
Hi friends,
Have your kids started school yet?  Our neighborhood starts in a few weeks.  I thought it would be fun to make these printable locker quotes.  They are short and simple, but can have such an impact on daily life.
LockerQuotes-01
These quotes are great to use as a gift  for Young Men and Young Women who are starting school. These can be used in lockers, but would also work great as room decor (and not just for teens).  I plan on using the “be still” quote in my family room, and the “Return with Honor” quote right next to the front door.   I think all of these quotes can be helpful to any of us at different times.  How would you use these quotes?

This package comes with 4 quotes in 3 different sizes (3×5, 4×6, and 5×7) and can be purchased here.

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.
