3rd Annual YW Sacrament Program

lds.org
Sunday we had our 3rd annual Young Women's Sacrament Meeting Program for our ward. 
 Once again, it was power-filled and amazing to be apart of.

Our theme was this year's mutual theme Doctrine and Covenants 115:5:
Verily I say unto you all: aArise and shine forth, that thy blight may be a cstandard for the dnations;
We began preparing for our program last fall by practicing our songs in Sunday opening exercises.  We felt our young women had A MESSAGE to share.  We saw our young women as one of the Lord's favorite tools on His tool belt. 

Elder Russell M. Nelson said it best:
" The influence of the young women of the Church, like a sleeping giant, will awaken, arise, and inspire the inhabitants of the earth as a mighty force for righteousness."

What was their message?

To arise to the mountain of the Lord, the holy temple, and to qualify for and be worthy of a temple recommend.  Now is the time!

For our script we used excerpts from the General Young Women's broadcast among many other quotes and stories from other conference addresses. Several young women bore their testimonies. Mixed in with beautiful song.  It was powerful.

We had all the young women dress in solid colored shirts with no logos or design. They wore any shade of yellow, any shade of orange, any shade of pink, or white if they didn't have anything in the other colors. 

We asked all of them to wear their Medallions or torch necklaces.

The young women were glowing!  They were so beautiful  they were literally shining.

Putting on the Whole Armor of God/FHE

This was a family home evening lesson we did when we had grade school age children and teenagers. It was a great visual that worked on both age groups on teaching about putting on the armor of God. Lesson:   What is going to happen when we put these oranges into the water?  Are they going to sink or are they going to float? [the younger kids will probably answer SINK, because an orange looks heavy enough to sink in water] But, instead....the oranges FLOAT because they have their ARMOR on What happens when you peel the oranges? Without their ARMOR on, they sink! We can compare these oranges to us and how important it is to put on our full armor everyday. Here is on oldie but goodie seminary video from the 80's:   " Putting on the Armor of God"  and symbolically what can happen if we take off our armor even for a minute. Scripture: Ephesians 6: 11-17 11 Put on the whole a armour of God, that ye ma

Understanding Lehi's Dream

In 2007 something kind of awesome happened.  There were 3  Devotional/Fireside talks  given back to back one month after another....on Lehi's Dream.  Coincidental??  I think not! Lehi's Dream and You - President Boyd K. Packer, BYU Devotional given January 16, 2007 Reservoir of Living Water -Elder David A. Bednar CES Fireside , given February 4, 2007 Hold Fast to the Words of the Prophets - Elder Neil L.Anderson CES Fireside given March 4 2007 Interesting don't you think that all three randomly inspired, chose to speak on the same topic?  Here is what Elder Anderson said prior to giving his CES Fireside talk. "I want to tell you of the Lord’s guiding hand in our meeting tonight. During the early days of January I worked to organize and outline what I would present to you. Knowing that Elder David A. Bednar was scheduled to speak to you in February, I asked him if he had finalized the subject he would address. I was taken aback when he responded

Are You Like a Lighthouse?

 Heceta Head lighthouse before sunset in all her beauty!! My husband   and I went on an anniversary trip to the Oregon Coast. See my previous post   My Heceta Vacation .  I was mesmerized by the deep symbolism and parallel that lighthouses have to motherhood. So much, that I couldn't stop thinking about it!   Here are a few thoughts from inside my head.... Heceta Head Lighthouse Lighthouses stand on the shores and coasts of our world, and their purpose is timeless and constant.   They know who they are there and why they are on this planet.  They are on the shores as l eaders , who lead with strength, not uncertainty, and they are a guide to ships out at sea, trying to get to shore safely.  Their light shines 24/7  consistently through calm still waters, or through turbulent storms.     Heceta Head Lighthouse See the symbolism?! In my lighthouse touring...(if you want to call it that)...I learned a lot! I was like a spon
