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.
CLICK HERE for article.

** Update - I have children who use this app.  I am not necessarily against it.  I think, this app, along with so many others, needs to be monitored, taught and talked about with our kids.  Knowledge is power.  Most kids can use this app and not have anything bad happen.  It's all about being a parent and knowing what our kids are doing online and on devices.  And holding them accountable for this as well. **

Updates for 2014 Curriculum

Come, Follow Me has recently been updated with the latest talks from general conference as well as the newest media produced by the Church. While the monthly doctrinal units have not changed, each unit contains more learning outlines than can be taught in a month, and each outline contains more learning activities than can be taught in one class period. Teachers should continue to select outlines and learning activities based on the needs of the youth they teach.CONTINUE READING HERE.

Temple Recommends - Moms & Daughters

I learned something today that I did not know before.  We have a few YW whose mom's have never been to the temple.  Today I found out that these mom's can get a limited-use temple recommend (just like their daughters) and go with their daughters (or on their own) to the temple to do baptisms for the dead.  Did you know that?  I didn't until yesterday.  I am so thrilled to be able to include these moms in some of our temple trips now.  Why didn't I know this before??

Very Cool Roots Mapper - Genealogy


I just discovered this very cool roots mapper.  It maps where your family line is from.  So awesome!

You need your Family Search log in information (which is the same as your lds.org log in).  It does take a few minutes to map - I did 7 generations and it took about 5 minutes.  But - how cool is that?!?!

Go to RootsMapper now.

Come unto Christ theme

I love the mutual theme for 2014 - Come unto Christ.

I love making products for the theme each year.

This year - for the 2014 theme - I have been pondering and praying for how to present this theme through the products I make.  Yes - you read that correctly - I pray for guidance as I design these items.  This has been tough for me.  Not tough in the way of thinking what to do - tough in a way to still be respectful of this theme, yet still design items that are fun and inspiring for the youth.

I hope my products for the 2014 theme inspire you.  They aren't as "fun and cute" as other years.  I felt very impressed to keep it simple and focused on the theme of CHRIST and not necessarily on "cuteness".

We just added our LANYARD - again it is available as just the lanyard, or with a pouch that holds the new youth temple recommends:

You can see all my items HERE. I hope to deeply inspire and strengthen testimonies through them.

Thanks for listening!  I love the young women and youth of this Church.

New 2014 Mutual Theme items coming....

We are so thrilled at all the items we will have for the 2014 Mutual Theme.  But, we can only get them here so fast.  We are excited to have added a few things to the website, but still anxiously await their arrival.  We are particularly excited for our theme CHARM, which are feet, with the words Come unto Christ.  This charm will also be available as a necklace.  But we must be patient as we wait for them to be made (and we have to wait until mid to late October).

You can see what we have already, and place your pre-orders HERE.
What a great theme this is.  I am so excited to see what positive changes happen in my young women as this theme in implemented in my ward.

2014 Mutual Theme - Come Unto Christ

The 2014 mutual theme has been announced!  It is "Come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness" (Moroni 10:32).

I am thrilled to be once again refocusing on the Savior with our youth.  What a great theme!

More information will be on our blog as it becomes available.  We will also be ramping up our creation of our mutual theme products for a late September availability.

Temple Paper Box


We love our *NEW* temple paper box.  Fill it with treats.  Put a small gift in it. Give it to a new Beehive with her torch necklace in it.  Fill it with fluff and use as a table display.  The possibilities are endless.  Did we tell you we love it?!?!

FINISHED FOLDED BOX is 3"x3" by 2" tall.  Temple sides extend 4" above box.  (So the temple sides are 6" tall total).

You can order it HERE.  It comes flat, but it's easy to fold up and glue together.

How to assemble:
1. With the temple flat, fold up the temple sides so the fold is UNDER the round knobs.  Fold up the straight sides so they are the same as the temple sides.
2. Fold the round knobs in so they are flush with the edge.
3. Fold the STRAIGHT edges in half - down to the base edge.
4. It should look something like this picture at this point:


5. Fold up all four sides and secure them to the round knobs.  Glue dots work well, a glue stick, or double sided tape. Secure well.  Should look like this (looking into box from the top):







6. Fold the folded in half straight sides in to form top of box.  Secure with tape or a sticker of some kind. You're done!

You can finish it off with any kind of ribbon.  Adorable!  ORDER HERE.
