Personal Progress Values Classroom Banners – temple style

Our personal progress classroom temple banners fit on four pages or less. I created them to be used at New beginnings or when you are focusing on a particular value during the month; however, you’ll find lots of uses for them at camp and other activities, I’m sure. Simply print out the pages, align the overlap, and tape for a beautiful classroom poster! Enjoy! Sample image:

YW Values (Printable)


As of late, I have become ga ga for vintage floral patterns. There is something just pretty and sweet about them. I decided to create the YW values with pretty florals. I plan on printing them off (enlarged copies) and posting them in the YW room for decoration. Feel free to use in your young womens and share! You can download for free here http://courtneyaitken.blogspot.com/2013/01/yw-values-vintage-style.html

YW Value Temple Element – Divine Nature

This is based on the Inspire Logo I created for another project.

I got “inspired” myself and realized that nearly all of the YW values have the letter ‘i’ in them. Those that don’t have letter ‘i’ were easy to implement, too. I hope it reminds leaders and young women that “as we strive the young women values … we will be prepared to make and keep sacred covenants, receive the ordinances of the temple, and enjoy the blessings of exaltation.”


Have You Experienced This Mighty Change in your Hearts – devotional handout

I was asked to do a devotional for Golden Hour at YW girls’ camp. My topic was “Have You Experienced This Mighty Change in your Hearts”, as I recall. I used the video “Significant in Every Way” from the LDS Church’s New Era Videos You Tube Channel.

The camp leaders had asked us to send the girls home with something to remember the devotional with, so I went to my favorite dollar store, Dollar Tree, and found these 2 inch glass paperweights in the shape of hearts. I put them in some tulle bags I found in the wedding section of the dollar store along with a copy of the poem.

I also made a handout that included the poem itself for the girls to take home. You can download it here

And yes, that’s one of my (awesome) Young women stickers sealing the whole thing shut.

YW Elements: Value Flowers on Ribbon

I created this element based on a freebie I found at Shabby Princess Scrapbooking. It is one of a series of upscale YW scrap elements I am creating for the Young Women portion of this website.

This element features the YW value flower elements with a ribbon background and each value name beneath in font “Vivaldi”. With drop shadow.

See all the LDS Digital Scrapbooking elements.

A Royal Generation

This handout was made by another leader to accompany Young Women’s Manual 1, Lesson 29: The Second Coming. This leader glued little jewels on the crown as embellishments.

You can download a similar crown clipart image I created here.

This is the text:

    “My dear friends, you are a royal generation. You were preserved to come to the earth in this time for a special purpose. Not just a few of you, but all of you. There are things for each of you to do that no one else can do as well as you. … If you will let Him, I testify that our Father in Heaven will walk with you through the journey of life and inspire you to know your special purpose here” (H. Burke Peterson, “Your Life Has a Purpose,” New Era, May 1979, p. 5).

Come Follow Me

This poster has the lyrics to Hymn 116, Come, Follow Me.

When I was in Young Women’s, one of my leaders taught Manual 1, Lesson 3 and hand wrote the lyrics to this song on a piece of looseleaf paper. She glued it to a piece of yellow construction paper and gave it to us at the end of the lesson. I tacked it to my bedroom wall, and on several tearful teenage nights read those lyrics and found solace many, many times.

Sometimes when I think that my effort preparing lessons or making handouts are a waste of time, I remember that simple handwritten hymn on my bedroom wall and the comfort it gave me — it really IS worth it! ~Jenny
