In preparation for General Conference, I created journal sheets for my Young Women to take notes on. I don’t know about you, but I pay more attention (i.e., stay awake) when my hands are busy. Whether that means I’m taking notes, doodling, painting, baking, etc, it keeps my mind fresh. I hope it does the same for these girls! For that same reason, I thought I’d share them with you!

The first page features this promise that I love from Elder Uchtdorf,

I invite you to ponder questions you need to have answered. For example, you might yearn for direction and guidance by the Lord regarding challenges you are facing. Answers to your specific prayers may come directly from a particular talk or from a specific phrase. At other times answers may come in a seemingly unrelated word, phrase, or song.

Here’s my challenge to you,

  1. Write a list of questions
  2. Pray specifically about the items on your list
  3. Listen (with your ears and your heart) for answers

I’ve tested this in my life and I also know that you have to be listening with your heart and your ears to get those answers. So put his promise to the test, just be ready to act on your answers.

General Conference Journal :: It's a Wilde LifeBack to the journal we made…The pages are set so that you can print the PDF two to a page, cut the page in half and bind them. I just used some wrapping paper and raffia that I already had on-hand to bind the journals

There is a page for each of the Twelve Apostles, the First Presidency and a few extra generic pages for the other General Authorities’ talks. Just note that since I designed this one for the Young Women to use, there is a place for them to write a few fun facts about themselves, so those questions might not be pertinent to everyone, but that’s okay! Each page also has a tie on it to color in what the speaker’s tie looks like–I don’t think anyone is EVER too old to color 🙂  Feel free to share, but please be respectful and keep it to personal use only.

A Daughter of God

Today I had the opportunity to teach the Young Women at Church, based on this lesson. As always, I over-prepared and did not even touch on 95% of what I had with me, so here’s just a small taste of the quotes & scriptures taken from these talks:

The Light Within You

To Young Women

Daughters of Heavenly Father

What it Means to be a Daughter of God

Your Happily Ever After

We Are Daughters of Our Heavenly Father

The Moral Force of Women

Remember Who You Are!

“There has come to you as your birthright something beautiful and sacred and divine. Never forget that. Your Eternal Father is the great Master of the universe. He rules over all, but He also will listen to your prayers as His daughter and hear you as you speak with Him. He will answer your prayers. He will not leave you alone,” President Gordon B. Hinckley.

“Let the knowledge that you are a daughter of God settle deep into your soul, it will comfort you, strengthen your faith, and influence your conduct, ” Susan W. Tanner

You are more than what you see looking back at you in the mirror. You have an inner beauty and spirit that reaches beyond your trivial titles in everyday life. You are more than a student. You are more than a caregiver, a nurse, a teacher, a mom. You are a literal daughter of God and that makes all the difference.

Thanksgiving: The Calm Before the Storm

Who’s ready for Thanksgiving? Raise your hand.

On the one hand I’ve been counting down the days for what feels like months, and on the other I cannot believe it’s already Thanksgiving. Where has 2013 gone? {Is it just me, or does time speed up the older I get?} I love Thanksgiving–the food, the family…the food…

I think of Thanksgiving as the calm before the storm–the storm of the holidays, that is. You know what I’m talking about. We all get caught in the decorating-baking-partying-shopping-wrapping-fury. So enjoy your Thanksgiving day. Eat a few too many carbs, line your pockets with leftovers (they want you to take the rolls!) and don’t stop til’ you have pie crumbs on your chin. It quite possibly is the last whole, balanced meal you eat before the holiday frenzy.

{Life tips according to Seth: Cook enough for leftovers at Thanksgiving so that you don’t have to cook dinner from Thanksgiving to Christmas. Because of course your Christmas meal should last you from Christmas to New Years. One would think this boy survives solely on leftovers…}

Speaking of leftovers, who wouldn’t want to walk away from their feast with these goodies in-tow?

So go ahead and get your food-coma on, show some gratitude and get ready because Santa’s coming to town.
