Young Women in Excellence

Photobucket


Last night we attended a special evening for the Young Women at church

It is an annual event, called Young Women In Excellence,
intended to spotlight each girl's progress on their projects in the eight areas of focus, or

Values:


Faith
Divine Nature
Individual Worth
Knowledge
Choice & Accountability
Good Works
Integrity
Virtue


The girl's spend 10 hours on a project related to each of these values.
This was Chloe's first project, and I was proud of her for achieving it,
since she has only been in the program since late June.


Chloe chose Choice & Accountability.
She watched all the sessions of General Conference, took notes, then compiled it into a homemade binder.
She wrote her feelings and testimony down to share with the group.

It was a wonderful evening. and I was reminded of how much effort the leaders in the Young Women organization put forth on behalf of our youth. I am so grateful for the cheerful and generous time and effort these spiritual women give in service to Chloe, to me, and to our Father in Heaven.

The guest speaker was a marvelous woman named Sister Golightly. I have met few like her.
She is real people. She is wise.
She is mellow, experienced and humble, with a delightful, self-deprecating humor.
She is true to what she believes and has accepted new challenges, and mastered them.
She inspired, and held rapt, a room full of 12-18 year old girls.

She is 88 years old, and I want to be just like her.

It was such a great program... I was so happy I was able to go :-) (Sorry, activities committee, for skipping out on our meeting!)

i heard it was good. i was sorry i had to bail out early...i had commitments with the golf driving range. (jk, the commitment was actually w/ the young men and taking them there)

Diane said...

Zach is the kind of man I am talking about. He left a meeting full of girly stuff, and sacrificed his wants in order to go to the golf range. now THAT is commitment.

I completely agree with you Diane, that was a wonderful meeting/event. We are so blessed to have such a program for Chloe with that caliber of leaders running it. Thanks you so much to everyone involved in the Helotes Ward YM progam!

Way to go Clo! I also love her outfit. Our YWIE is Wed. the 18th and my girls have been working hard on their projects. I'll be blogging all about it. Your guest speaker sounds like an amazing woman!

I married my high school sweetheart 34 years ago in the LDS Temple. I have 4 children (3 married, and a 14 year old) and 6 grandchildren. I lived my entire life in California, until 6 years ago. I now reside in San Antonio, Texas. The most important thing to me is my family; I have invested the most in them and it has paid great dividends. I love doing anything creative that beautifies my surroundings and I love nature. I minored in Art and majored in Interior Design at BYU, yet, my profession is a Tax Preparer.
