 ACTIVITY: Decisions Determine Destiny planner

YOUNG WOMEN LDS Lesson Helps, Activities to match lessons, lesson ideas, arrow 1, gospelgrabbag.comTell youth that every decision they make can determine their destiny or the destiny of another. They can put themselves in the driver’s seat by making responsible decisions. 
$0.50 - DECISIONS: Come Follow Me, December - Building the Kingdom of God in the Latter Days: "What can I do to help new members of the Church?" Young Women lesson helps, gospelgrabbag.com, YW3.411. Read D&C 82:24.  Tell youth that the celestial kingdom can be their destiny if they are steadfast in keeping the commandments.
2. Challenge youth to make responsible decisions each day at “Home, School, Church,” and “Work” as they think about being dependable. Make decisions by writing ways in which you can be dependable.

TO MAKE: Print activity in color or black and white. Laminate.

TESTIMONY SHARING: Ask youth to share their testimony on objective: What can I do to help new members of the Church? “For many people, becoming a member of the Church can be challenging. It may involve leaving behind old friendships and adjusting to a new way of life. Each new member of the Church needs friendship, a responsibility, and nurturing with “the good word of God” (Moroni 6:4). We can help new members by befriending them, serving alongside them, and sharing our testimonies with them.”

More Learning Activities:

“THANK PARENTS FOR BEING DEPENDABLE” BREAKFAST: Help youth cook and serve breakfast to their parents. Have them tell how their parent is dependable and what they admire about them.  Take pictures of each youth and parents. This can also be done with grandmothers and aunts.

WELCOME BASKET: Help youth individually welcome new members or class members by creating a basket filled with notes and lotions and treats. 

SUCCESS IN THE HOME / WARD:
1. Read the prophet David O. McKay’s words reminding us of the family and home: “No other success can compensate for failure in the home” (quoted from  James Edward McCulloch, Home The Savior of Civilization [1924], 42; in Conference Report April 1935, 116).

2. Talk about ways we can concentrate on home success or success in the ward by welcoming new members and encouraging each other. Talk about being a good listener and attaching things they discover to a service list. Ask young women to share how they project themselves in the home or ward and succeeding there.
Ideas at Home: Spend time with the children, focusing on their needs: spiritual, mental, physical, and social. Care for yourself to feel good about you. Plan for a career you can do at home or one you can do before or after your children are raised. Have youth reflect on the times their mother was and wasn’t home when they arrived. Focus on the future now and begin to prepare, for tomorrow is just around the corner. Plan for an eternal marriage so your family can be together forever.
Ideas in the Ward: Complimenting ward members on something, learning about them, inviting them to activities, following up (never assuming others are giving them the attention they need to feel welcome). Especially focus on the elderly. Thomas S. Monson said, “Fellowshipping, friendshipping, and reactivating are ongoing in the daily life of a Latter-day Saint.”
