New Beginnings Slide Show

I’ve made a slide show presentation for New Beginnings. It includes things like the Young Women theme, motto and logo, the class symbols, and personal progress highlights. It is formatted as a pdf, so you can run it in Adobe Acrobat and view it in Full Screen Mode, and use the arrow keys to go through the slides. You can download it here.

I’ve made another version of this slide show that has “The Worth of Soles” pageant included. There are additional slides for each value associated with a shoe. You can download it here, and also see our script here.

    This is so cute! I’m doing chalkboard decor for our New Beginnings this will be perfect! Is there a way to print these instead of the slideshow?

  5. Kristin says:

    Thanks so much, guys! <3

    Krisi - they are pdf files, which once are downloaded can be printed or viewed as a slide show - whatever you want!

    Hey Kristin,
    I love getting ideas from you! I have a friend who just got called as chorister in her ward. I remembered your cute ideas when you were chorister. Can you give me a link to those so I can pass them on?

    Thanks tons!

    Thank you SOOOOO much, what a great visual to have instead of just speaking everything…I love it. Any way you could post the original powerpoint? I would love to add the Values and their scriptures that the girls are going to read.

    • Kristin says:

      The slideshow started out as a pdf (well not really, I use InDesign, then export as a pdf) – so what I’ve posted is all I’ve got!

    • Kristin says:

      Shannon, I just added another version of the slide show – it has the values, but not the scriptures. Maybe it could still work for you?

  8. mandi says:

    I’ve said it before, but I am in utter awe of your talent. Seriously. I’ve got nothing in this department, and am SO very glad that you are here to compensate! Thank you for sharing!

    Our New Beginnings was a great success thanks to your wonderful slideshow. We even printed the class symbol slides to display. Thank you for sharing your wonderful gift of creativity with so many!

    • Kristin says:

      Yay! That’s great, Lorraine – thanks for letting me know! I love that you printed the class symbols slides to display. That is actually the main reason I made the slide show, because I couldn’t find any posters to display – so I’m glad to see you used them this way. 🙂

    Hi, I was wondering if you still had the slide show without the “worth of souls” shoe part? You said you had both available for download but when I click on either link it gives the full slide show. This is so great and I would love to use it, but we are not doing a shoe theme. Thanks so much!

    I love love love the slide show!
    I can not get the links to work:
    I’ve made another version of this slide show that has “The Worth of Soles” pageant included. There are additional slides for each value associated with a shoe. You can download it here, and also see our script here.

    Should I be looking somewhere else except for the “here” spots?

    • Kristin says:

      Michelle – they should be working, but are large files, so may take longer than usual to open. You may want to try using a different browser. If it’s still not working, let me know and I can email you a pdf.

    I love you slides. Our New Beginnings Theme is “Stand Ye in Holy Places and Be not Mooooooved” We are doing an old fashioned farm theme and serving milk and cookies. The invitation I made is chalkboard art and your slides would match perfectly. I would love to print them in poster size and display them around the room. I clicked on your download link and tried to copy them to my desktop but it didn’t work. Is there a way I can print them?
    Thank you so much!!

    • Kristin says:

      When the file is open in your brower window, right-click on it, then save to your desktop. The entire slide show should download to your computer, then you can print whichever pages you would like. The farm theme sounds udderly delightful! 😉

      • Melissa says:

        Thank you! I don’t know why it just isn’t working. Is there any way you could email it to me as an attachment? I think you are so nice to share your work!

  14. Holly says:

    You are so talented, creative, and sweet to share. What font did you use for the titles? I just love it and would like to use it on some camp stuff. Oh, and what about all the little scroll things? Those are super cute too!

  15. jill says:

    I WAS wondering if I could use this slide presentation as individual photos? Is there a way to print photos from this? Your work is so beautiful and I would love to make a couple of these into handouts! thanks for your hard work!

    • Kristin says:

      Thanks, Jill! I would try opening the pdf in a graphics program, then saving as a jpeg to send to your photo place. Hope it works for you!

    These are such amazing ideas!!! Thanks so much Kristin for sharing… We have our New Beginnings coming soon and our theme is “Stand ye in holy place” this would be great to share with me group. Any changes we can get a version that can be edited ? Our ward is a Spanish Ward and I would love to translate the text and share it at our NB… LOVE LOVE ALL YOUR IDEA…

  17. I love this slide show and all the ideas to go along with it. We’re just getting to our New Beginnings this week and I was wondering if there is a way you could provide just a blank slide? One with only the chalk board background and dot border. I’d like to add a few more slides that are specifics for our unit and would love for them to be cohesive.

    It is appropriate time to make some plans for the future and
    it is time to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I want to suggest
    you few interesting things or suggestions. Perhaps you can write next articles referring to this article.
    I want to read more things about it!

    do you by chance have a version for this years theme?? just by changing the stand in holy places to come unto me??? that would be awesome!!!!

  20. CaroleH says:

    I am using your powerpoint for New Beginnings. It is great. Can you tell me what font you used for the original blackboard slides you did? Where did you get it from. I really like it.
    Thanks for all your hard work and sharing it.
