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.

"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

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.
Past Mutual Themes: The theme for 2011 is taken from the 13th Article of Faith. Here is an article about it in the Church News. Click here. “If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, 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.
Misc Ideas: Watch all “five” sessions of General Conference for a Value Project (In the Spring - include the YW Broadcast; in the Fall, read the talks from the Priesthood and/or RS sessions to make the fifth session). It can go under Faith - for increasing your faith by listening and applying gospel topics heard; or Knowledge - increasing your knowledge by being taught by the Prophet and Apostles. If 10 hours is not yet met, make a journal and write down notes about each session.
Did You Know . . . . The First Presidency has said to young women, "As you participate in Personal Progress, you join with thousands of other young women who are striving to come unto Christ" (Young Women Personal Progress , 1). LDS Church website www.lds.org
