2015 YW Leader Calendar Preview



















Each year I make a planning calendar for YW leaders.  I sell LOTS of them!
 It started with me just making one for myself to use and it snowballed into others seeing it and wanting one.  I have made one every year since 2001.  I already have leaders emailing me about when next years will be ready.  I make it for me - and for what I want to look at often during the year.

I want your opinion on the 2015 Calendar cover for my 2015 YW Leader Planning Calendar (I have actually changed designs after getting feedback on several covers - so I really want your opinion).  I chose "I am a Daughter of God" & the temple so I can see this every time I am doing anything YW related and to remember what I am ultimately trying to convey to my precious YW whom I serve.

Which color combination do you like BEST?  Please leave comments on this blog post or on the FB post linking here.  Thank YOU!!!

Girls Camp this week!

I will be at Girls Camp this week.  I CANNOT WAIT!!!  I love girls camp.  It is my most favorite YW activity all year.

So, since I will be enjoying some quiet moments in the mountains, I won't be in my office to answer emails or ship orders.  All orders placed this week will ship the week of June 9th.  Thanks for understanding!

We still have 2014 mutual theme items - and most have been reduced to clearance prices.  ORDER HERE.

Capes for Kids

* This is an ongoing project for me - so even though the original post about this may be old, I still ship these to Enchanted Makeovers.  If you have questions/concerns, please email me - ywbooks@yahoo.com *

I'm doing a project that will help the organization Enchanted Makeovers.  It is basically making capes for kids in shelters. You can get all the details and more information HERE.

This would make a great service project at CAMP.  The pattern from Family Fun Magazine doesn't require any sewing, so it can easily be done at camp.

Will you help me??

Beehives are awesome


I taught the Beehives on Sunday.  Just going about my business and setting up - as I pull out my YW Value scripture pencils, all of a sudden, they are all oogling over them - kind of, sort of irreverently.  If I would have known that earlier, I think those would have been their birthday presents this year.  But now that it's April, I'm thinking - Girls Camp!

CLEARANCE - Mutual Theme Items


Well, it's come to that time of year again when we start to clearance out the current year mutual theme items.  We have to make room for new products.  So, a select few of our 2014 mutual theme items are on clearance.  You will want to order these now if you plan to use them anytime this year.  Once they are gone - that's it.  If you need them for camp or youth conference - you'd be smart to order now.  They will be gone by summer.

The theme prints make great lesson handouts, or pillow thoughts at girls camp.

You can order them HERE.

Young women grasping their leadership rolls in class presidencies

I witnessed something that touched my heart today in church.  I was handing out invitations to our YW for New Beginnings next week.  I gave one to everyone who was there.  As soon as we started to arrange our chairs differently for our combined lesson, a member of our Beehive class presidency came up to me and simply said, "Sister Hacking, can I have Kaylee's invitation?  She's not here so I will take it to her."
I was just so touched by this young woman and her grasping her leadership role of being in a class presidency.

Technology: SnapChat app


SnapChat is a popular app that allows users to take a picture of themselves, or anything.  They can then send it to someone - and only allows that person/persons to view the picture for a few seconds, then they can't view it anymore.  Well, this man explains the app perfectly - and why we shouldn't be using it.  Nor should our YW.
