Lately I have been reading about moms having a celebration when their daughters receive their Young Womanhood Recognition. I think it is a fabulous idea. Anyone who has worked on personal progress knows there is a lot of heart and soul that goes in to it. In my area this concept of a celebration isn't happening. Our YW presidency decided we couldn't go without acknowledging these most excellent girls.
Tonight for mutual we are having a medallion night with those who have received that honor as our special guests. Some of the YW will be speaking about the work that went into getting their medallion and how it feels when you meet that goal (Be Thou an Example!!!). It will be good for both speakers and listeners. It's always fun to have a night that honors you and the listeners have a good example to look up to. I wanted to do something special for these girls but not sure what. I'm sure the older YW are completely tired of the wood stuff I make :) This is what I came up with....
Each of the Yw that have received their medallion will get one of these personalized books. We are going to pass them around and let the other YW write their congrats.
I'm a fan of pictures. Always will be. I think at this point I probably have about 2,000 pictures of our YW. I need to put them to good use. Each book will have four pictures in it. 2 YW group pictures and 2 pictures of them with closer friends.
I'm most likely going to put kits of this project in my shop. First I need to see if the girls like these are not :)
