On the Wednesday before we had the girls make a craft-with a shell and then they cut it out and wrote inside what they wanted to perfect for themselves-"pearl".
We used these are some of our decorations for the actual Young Women in Excellence night.
The night turned out perfect. We had two young women talk about Personal Progress and how it helped them. Marla spoke on being a Pearl of Great Price. Tammy and I spoke on our activity and how we've seen the girls grow from when the first came into young women's. Brother Spraktes also spoke and the girls sang "We Believe."
It was a really neat night, I"m so happy that it turned out the way it did. The spirit was there and I'm hoping the girls felt that.
Here's some of the decorations:
Tissue paper pom-pom's hanging from the ceiling (looked like White Pearls floating)
The front of the room we had Pearl of Great price things, such as a picture of Christ, Candles-"his light", The Pearl of Great Price, Pearls, A mirror-"You are a Pearl of Great Price in God's eyes." etc.
As they walked out, we handed them chocolate "pearls"
and sugar cookies-We decorated them with sparkly sprinkles and pearl designs
I sure love the young women with all my heart! I love the Ladies I get to work with as well! So grateful for them.
