Hello! I am the first Counselor in the YW Presidency in Thompson Station, Tn ward. Shortly after I received this calling, a new Mia Maid class presidency was called. I saw this as a great opportunity to train a new presidency so I started searching for effective ways to train them in their respective callings. So I went to the Church website and gathered the pertinent information, however I saw a gap which I filled by adding a worksheet at the bottom of each page. My end product was all the information on training YW plus the added benefit of a “hands on” approach…a worksheet. I went to PP Book and made suggestions on PP activities that would help them to become better leaders. I made suggestions on ways to implement the principles that were being taught.
We scheduled three consecutive meetings, Sunday’s at 4:00 worked out well for all of us. To begin with, I gave each presidency member, the secretary, MM Adviser a “MM Training Workbook” along with a schedule of the next three weeks, including with home spiritual assignments. I can’t tell you how much this has helped us! We now have a plan! We all have the same “vision”! We are excited about the things we have decided to do to fulfill our responsibilities to the YW whom we have been called to serve. The girls are now at the “helm” and their Adviser and I are there guiding them instead of the other way around!
