Young Women--Crazy Week Survival Kit

I love love love my calling to work with the Young Women.  I love the calling because I love those girls.  I feel geniunely blessed to know them, and to be part of their lives.  Just as with my own kids, my heart hurts when they are struggling.  This week is going to be particularly crazy for one of my laurels with her responsibilities for homecoming and student council, early morning seminary, tennis matches, and SATs.

I remember how overwhelming weeks like that felt in high school!  I hate that any of the amazing youth have to feel so overwhelmed!  I know its necessary, and I know they will survive, but I wanted to make it a little easier for this girl this week.

Given that it's Sunday, and I don't have much in the way of cool things just laying around, I did what I could to create a survival kit.  If not lighten her load, hopefully it will remind her she is loved.  At the very least, I hope it gives her a good laugh or two...


  1. You are so good! What an awesome idea. I would love to have you as a Young Womens leader.

  2. These look like great ideas! For as long as I've used a computer, I don't know how to make cute things like this. I'm guessing you used a text box and then used a center justification? I will copy your pick-me-up survival kit. Thanks!
