A while back we planned to have a Spirit Week where we focused on one of the Young Women value's each day. So each of us as leaders were assigned a value and to create a packet for that value for the girls to open on our day.
Inside the packet could be whatever you wanted, talks, quotes, cd compilations, letters, it didn't matter. The only requirement was to create something that the girls could have or wear, corresponding with your value color, so when they saw each other at school they would be able to feel connected and remember that they weren't alone in trying to Stand for Truth and Righteousness.
I was given Good Works. I had created the packet, but was having a hard time deciding what to do for the Yellow "something". I thought about it forever, and was stumped and ready to head to Wal*Mart to procure myself some smiley face stickers. That is until Marilyn posted once again about Etsy.
I immediately got on there I was thrilled to find everything I needed to create something fabulous, and without dropping a ton of cash. Thanks again Marilyn for answering all my questions and walking me through the world of Etsy.
Here's what I created, and I like it. I told the girls (in my letter to them) that I hoped wearing this ring would remind them to keep their hands in the Service of God.
Anyway, to kick off Spirit Week we had a Pep Rally in the gym for Mutual on Wednesday. The leaders all dressed in our color and created a game to go with our Value. It was so great! The girls opened their first packet yesterday and will open the final packet on Wednesday and then we have Young Women in Excellence that night. This afternoon my class is meeting at my house to go decorate another girls room for her birthday. I'm excited to pick their brains on what they think of Spirit Week so far. I'm already in love with it.
