Thankful Thursday

This might sound kind of strange seeing as I'm 24 years old and "graduated" from Young Woman's 6 years ago, but I'm thankful for the Personal Progress program! When I was in Young Women's the program was different than it is today. Back in my day, we had to complete goals for each year that you were in Young Women's and then at the end of your second year (or in my case at the end of my 2nd month in my 2nd year - I was a personal progress junkie) you would receive a medallion - they were gold medallions so no one really ever wore theirs :) But I have all 3 of mine plus my Young Womanhood medallion. I loved doing personal progress because I'm a goal driven person. Now that I'm in Young Women's again as a leader I have the opportunity to earn my Young Womanhood Recognition Award again! The program is way different now and at first I didn't care for it but now I really like it. I don't have to do as much as the girls have to do because my service hours as a leader count, but for the past 2 weeks I've been doing Personal Progress as my scripture study and it is AWESOME! I love it! I love Young Women's - especially my ward's Young Women! I love this gospel! I love our prophet! I love my Savior! And of course, I love Personal Progress!

I love Young women's too! I had such a blast when I was in Young Women's and I loved the personal progress program we had. That's really cool you get to be in it and do it again! I don't know if you ever read my blog, but if you do I hope you'll leave a comment! I love comments.
