Personal Progress

As a Young Womens Leader I can personally participate in the "Personal Progress" program and receive my own Young Womens Recognition Award. I'm really excited to set these goals for myself. Here are a couple I am setting for experiences....

*Write in my journal every day for 30 days in a row.
*Memorize the Young Women Motto
*Memorize the Articles of Faith

I haven't decided what I am going to do for the projects. I only have to do 3 of them while the Young Women have to do 7. For those of you reading my blog who are not familiar with the Personal Progress program, here is what it is.....

What Is Personal Progress?
Personal Progress is a goal-setting program that helps a young woman develop a testimony of Jesus Christ and His gospel. A young woman can work on Personal Progress even if she is the only young woman in her ward or branch.
Personal progress gives a young woman activities to do that will help her:
Know she is a daughter of God.
Rely upon the Holy Ghost.
Develop personal religious behaviors, such as prayer, scripture study, obedience to commandments, and service.
Keep her baptismal covenants and prepare and qualify for temple covenants.
Develop talents and skills that prepare her for her future roles.
Establish a pattern of step-by-step progress through her life.
She will have a pattern of progress for her life that will bring her joy and happiness!

I am going to use these goals to help my life stay more on track. I am excited for my girls to turn 12 so they can participate in Young Womens. I did not grow up a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints so I did not have that opportunity. I think it is wonderful!!

  1. One of my biggest regrets is that I didn't complete my personal progress when I was in Young Womens. I could have easily done it, but I didn't make it a priority.

    Good luck- I know you can do it!! :)


Thanks for leaving me a comment! I love to hear from you!!
