Each Wednesday night we do an activity with the young women in our church. It is a great way for them to learn about the gospel in a more informal (rather than just Sunday) setting. This past week we combined with the young men and did an activity to explain the new church wide theme for this year. It is 1 Timothy 4:12 - "Let no man despise thy youth, but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in spirit, in faith, in purity."

We did different stations to help them understand each one of the words in this scripture. I was assigned the station "WORD". We made little journals so they can record their goals, and feelings throughout the next year. We even included a little calendar so they can mark off the days they said their morning and evening prayers, read their scriptures, and smiled. (This is a goal made for all the youth in the church to do this next year).

I found some really cheap (4 for $1) composition notebooks at Dollar Tree that worked perfectly, and covered them with paper. Then created a little page to list the theme and goals, as well as the calendars mentioned above. The boys weren't too excited about being "crafty" but they all seemed to enjoy my station. It was a great evening!
