Young Women in Excellence

This past Sunday was Young Women in Excellence. At this program the girls highlight one of the many projects they have been working on towards their YW Medallion. The theme of the night was found in the book of Luke "Choose the good part". The girls learned about Mary and Martha and were encouraged to go serve others and be a shining example.

Mackenzie decided to highlight "Individual Worth". She displayed and talked about how music has had a positive influence in her life. She talked about how she helps lead a children's singing group called Singer's Company and that she has performed in many musical and choirs. She also pointed out how music can help invite the spirit into our lives.Madalyn highlighted her project from the value "Good Works". She talked about Mosiah 2:17 "That ye may learn that when you are in the service of you fellow beings you are in the service of your God". She spoke about quiet acts of service and how serving others makes her happy and can turn a bad day good.
As parents we are really enjoying watching the girls grow in the gospel as they build their own testimony of Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ. Our hope is that their testimony continues to grow as they grow into adults.
