Sunday Classes
1. Opening exercises. Opening exercises are held with all young women and leaders.
2. Young Women classes. Classes are used to teach gospel principles and how to apply them in daily living.
3. Lessons. Invite the Spirit into every lesson by using the Young Women Teaching Guide, a seven-step interactive lesson-planning guide.     LDS Church website   www.lds.org

Young Women leaders work under the authority and direction of priesthood leaders to help families and individuals realize divine expectations
(see Richard G. Scott, "The Doctrinal Foundation of the Auxiliaries," 63).

Priesthood leaders give guidance and vision to orient the service of Young Women leaders.

"Brethren and sisters, we must get on our knees and plead with the Lord for help and strength and direction. We must then stand on our feet and move forward" (Gordon B. Hinckley, Worldwide Leadership Training Meeting, Jan. 10, 2004, 20 & 21).

As Young Women and priesthood leaders magnify their callings, they fulfill the trust they are given.    LDS Church website   www.lds.org  
 

Every young woman needs three things:
Friendship. Genuine friendship helps each young woman feel loved and welcome.
A responsibility. Church callings and assignments help young women grow spiritually and strengthen their commitment to the Lord and His Church.
Nourish[ing] by the good word of God" (Moroni 6:4). Personal study of the scriptures, as well as teaching in family and Church settings, helps young women increase their understanding and strengthen their testimonies of the gospel.     LDS Church website   www.lds.org 
 

"We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have
to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is
comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying
to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we
are."  -Marjorie Pay Hinckley

Letters from the Church about Safety & Activity Guidelines
*Please be aware that if the Church has put out another letter dated AFTER these, that one will be the one you need to follow.  These are here for reference only.  To know the latest information, please see your bishop, stake president, branch president or contact the church directly.*

CTR doesn’t just stand for Choose the Right.  It can also mean Choose to Remember, or Christ the Redeemer.
 

Photo Roster: Take a picture of each young woman, or RS sister for a RS group (or have her email one to you).  Compile them on a page (you may need more than one page), having each picture about 1-1.5 inch square picture, with their name underneath. Depending on what you would be using this for, it would also be helpful and fun to include a home address, phone number, email, blog website, and maybe a birthday.

we seek after these things."   *DVD about the 2011 theme and segments from it you can download from the Church.  Click here for more information* You can download and watch the whole DVD here.
