We had our Young Women in Excellence last month. We got the theme and idea from The Idea Door. We ordered small bags and filled them with goodies for each of the girls.
The bags had
cell phone = faith (prayer is our connection to God, it takes faith and action for it to work),
We found Plastic Cell Phone Bubbles at a party store.
pocket mirror = divine nature (it allows us to see ourselves as God sees us),
We used small heart pocket mirrors found at a party store.
ID/driver’s license = individual worth (it tells defining information about each of us),
We took pictures of all the girls that we could. Then we made them an ID. We used a cartoony picture for the girls that we didn’t get to take their picture.
keys = knowledge (it helps us get to where we are going),
We cut out keys on green card stock (green for knowledge) with a quote on them about getting us to where we are going.
nail file = choice & accountability (bad choices constantly “prick” us where good choices smooth away rough edges and refine us).
We just bought the small brown/tan ones
gum = good works (we need share our good works with others),
Each girl got two piece — we totally miscalculated how many packs of gum we had to buy so each girl got 2 pieces instead of a pack.
the purse = integrity (it keeps everything together, it gives our structure for our personality),
We ordered small bags in bulk and wrote the girls names on them with puffy paint
hand sanitizer = virtue (it keeps us clean and pure),
We found them at a dollar store 3 per pack.
We had a great turnout and it was a fantastic evening — Now if we could just get our girls to do more Personal Progress!!
Pictures are in a totally random order — sorry.
