The Attitude of Gratitude

Yesterday in YW, our lesson was about the importance of gratitude.
At the end of the lesson I gave the girls and leaders a challenge to be more focused on gratitude this week...promising them that if they did so, things would look brighter and better even when going through a bad day. 

I want to give you the same challenge!
And I'll share the same resource with you...I made "A Week of Gratitude" book that I printed off, cut into individual pages, and turned into a booklet for each girl. Every day they are given a simple task to do to show gratitude. And next Sunday we'll report about our experiences and those who completed it can also count it as an additional value experience for personal progress!

And since it goes right along with it, I wanted to share an article from our last issue that focuses on the attitude of gratitude as well! Enjoy, my friends!

Choice & Accountability Value Experience #6

We are having a big Personal Progress activity with our Young Women next week - a multiple stations and build-an-ice-cream-sundae as you go sort of activity!!! It's going to be so FUN! We're trying to help the girls pass off some of the Value Experiences that they haven't completed yet...especially the ones that you can complete in one day. This is one of the papers I put together for a station.

Basically I just broke down the Value Experience into three sections so the girls can go through and complete each section. On #1 I will give them three highlighters - they'll use one color for each of the who/what/why's as they mark the theme to the left. And then continue to write their answers on the remaining portion of the chart.

Happy Personal Progressing!!!

Do Something Nice Day!

It's "Do Something Nice Day" which is a super awesome day!
Is there someone who needs your help?
Needs a smile?
Needs a note of encouragement?

Maybe someone in your family could use some help with a chore?
Help with homework?
Or maybe just someone to play a game with?

Think of something nice you can do today! You won't regret it!

(You can check out our Acts of Love for some fun ideas!)
