YW Manual 1 ideas

I don’t teach the young women lesson every Sunday, so the following are ideas from various, but not all lessons:

Lesson 1: mirror cut-out heart; “Young women, look into the mirror of eternity. Remember who you are! See yourself as our Heavenly Father sees you. You are elect. You are of noble birth. Don’t compromise your divine inheritance.”


It's not like they're mutually exclusive options...

Lesson 3: Following Christ






Lesson 4: Seeking the Spirit; a worksheet based on Elder Bednar’s talk, “Receive the Holy Ghost”



Lesson 7 & 8: Homemaking and Divine Roles of Women, includes tutorial for an “exploding” purse



Lesson 10: Supporting Family Members – build a Jenga tower to discuss ways to build a strong family



Lesson 17: The Purpose of Covenants and Ordinances – flower power



Lesson 19: Personal Records




Lesson 24: Invitation to Prayer and Meditation




Lesson 27: “Studying and pondering the scriptures are keys to salvation and happiness” bookmark



Lesson 28: Resisting Sin – the lures of the adversary




Lesson 33:  Avoiding Degrading Media Influences




Lesson 34: Worthy Thoughts




Lesson 37: Caring for our Physical Bodies

    • Kristin says:

      Emily, another member of our YW presidency taught this lesson last week. She invited 2 sisters from the ward to talk about their experiences in the Church, and things that have brought them joy. Then we brainstormed for the rest of the time about things that bring the girls joy. We had a great discussion, and got to know each better other through some of the comments. She also gave the girls a few minutes to write in their journals. It was simple, but great. Susan, from Mothers Who Know, shared some great ideas here: http://mothers-who-know.blogspot.com/2012/01/finding-joy-in-our-divine-potential.html

    I don’t teach on a regular basis, but seeing your amazing ideas makes me wish I could teach every week.
    I’m preparing for Lesson 41 The Ability to Succeed & would love to see your idea.

    • Kristin says:

      Kari – I didn’t teach this lesson, but the first idea that comes to mind is to do some kind of an acrostic poem with the word “success” – using words or phrases from the lesson pertaining to our abilities to succeed in life as a result of knowing who we are and understanding our worth.
