Evening Of Excellence

On Tuesday night was our wards Evening Of Excellence. Young Women in Excellence is a great opportunity to celebrate the Personal Progress achievements of the young women in your ward and encourage them to remain strong as they face life’s challenges.
Every year there is a different theme for the Yong Women  and this year was "Arise and Shine Forth" the theme for the Evening of Excellence was "Shine On".
It was beautifully decorated and a fun night. 

Here is E'lyse, Faith and Gabby. 
The lamps they are holding are battery operated and the girls got 
to decorate the lampshades last week.  
 Faith took off with my camera and had fun taking pictures.

 What is Personal Progress?

Purpose of Personal Progress

Personal Progress will help you strengthen your faith in and testimony of Jesus Christ as you learn His teachings and regularly apply them in your life. It will help you strengthen both your present family and your future family. It will help you prepare to make and keep sacred covenants and receive the ordinances of the temple. And it will prepare you to be a faithful, contributing member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The Personal Progress program uses the eight Young Women values to help you understand more fully who you are, why you are here on the earth, and what you should be doing as a daughter of God to prepare for the day you go to the temple to make sacred covenants. It will help you prepare for your future roles as a faithful woman, wife, mother, and leader in God’s kingdom. Participating in Personal Progress teaches you to make commitments, carry them out, and report your progress to a parent or leader. The patterns you establish as you work on Personal Progress—such as prayer, scripture study, service, and journal keeping—will become personal daily habits. These habits will strengthen your testimony and help you learn and improve throughout your life.
