We all know that we are called as Young Women leaders - not to entertain these girls, but to teach them. Sometimes we forget that our mid-week activities should actually be teaching our YW something - not just getting together to have fun.
wonderful article by Sister Dalton, YW General President. She gently reminds us that we do need to be PLANNING WITH A PURPOSE, and to always remember that "Every activity, every lesson, all we do in the Church, point to the Lord and His holy house" (Elder Russell M. Nelson, "Personal Preparation for Temple Blessings," Ensign, May 2001).
There is an Activity Planning Sheet on our YW website that will help you plan with a purpose. It is right towards the top of the page entitled: Young Women Activity Planning Sheet. This page is also included in our 2012 YW Leader Planning Calendar, available here.
