FREE 2017 Mutual Theme Young Women Printables

YW2017-BlogListing-01

Hi friends,
I was SO excited when the church announced the 2017 Mutual Theme and have LOVED creating these printables.  I know this theme is inspired because it teaches us a principal that is VITAL to our spiritual development and growth.  In our day of instant gratification and turning to google for just about everything, it is important for us to learn where the source of true knowledge and peace comes from.

I have created LOADS of printables to go along with this theme and am offering some of them FREE to our sugardoodle.net readers.  I hope they can help you in instilling this theme into the Young Women you teach and into all of our daily lives.

MeckMom’s Teaching Tips: Easy Individual Worth & Repentance Object Lesson

Repentance can be a tricky subject when teaching teens. Often our attempts to teach the commandments can lead to feelings of guilt and inadequacy. Teaching kids to see themselves the way their Father in Heaven sees them can really help them understand their worth – regardless of where they are in the repentance process.

Here’s a quick video that demonstrates one of my favorite easy object lessons for teaching Individual Worth.

The ultimate printable song book for Girls Camp

In addition to teaching Gospel Doctrine in my home ward I also have the fabulous job of planning camp for 25 young women this summer. Before I planned a single meal or even decided on a theme, I set my sights on one simple task…creating the perfect printable camp song book.

MM Camp Song Book 1 750x750-01

I’m a big believer in camp songs. I know they seem cheesy and dated but I whole-heartedly believe that teaching a group of girls to embrace ridiculousness for a few minutes has huge power. It loosens them up and helps them let go of their cliques and enjoy a little YW unity.

Of course none of this works if the songs themselves are lame. Kumbuya just won’t do it. You need songs with attitude and spunk. In this book I’ve kept many of the classics like Sippin’ Cider, the Princess Pat and The Banana Song (shown here)

but I’ve also added a few fun new songs like this great YW song set to the melody of ‘Cups’.

[embedyt]https://youtu.be/Qedk7VNtbWU[/embedyt]

In addition to the fun and crazy songs, I’ve also included the lyrics to several hymns so you’ll be all set for devotionals and testimony meetings.

Remember, if any of the songs in the book are unfamiliar, you can find most of the actions and melodies by searching their titles on YouTube (or watching MeckMom.com in the coming weeks).

MM Camp Song Book open 750x750-01-01-01-01

You can find the fabulous printable song books in the Sugardoodle Etsy Shop. Purchase once for only $4.95 and print as many copies as you need for your ward. Click here to find out more. Happy Camping, everyone!

Girls Camp Pillow Treat Printable Tags

Hi friends,
Summer is here, which means Girls Camp is right around the corner!  I’m sure some of us are in full blown planning (aka panic) mode.  Am I right?!  Have no fear, I am here to ease some stress for you.
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.
