Personal Progress for the week of Septmber 9th

We decided to change this weeks Personal Progress to Virtue #3.  Hopefully all of our families are planning to go on the Stake Temple trip this weekend, so we thought it would be a good idea to do some personal progress that will help us to prepare to go to the temple.  Preparing to go to the temple is a very important thing to do, so please get started on this person progress as soon as you can so that you may be able to be in a continued state of prayerful preparedness this week. I look forward to seeing you all at the temple.

Personal Progress

As the Young Womens Presidency we decided that we would like to start working on Personal Progress together with all the Young Women, Leaders and Moms.  This week we chose to work on Faith #2 in our Personal Progress book.  We are starting out simple, this Personal Progress is one that you can complete in less then a day.  You can click on the the Faith #2 and it will take you right to the Personal Progress page on the LDS website.  The Personal Progress page is a great tool, so take advantage of it.  Everything is a click away and just in case you were wondering, the journaling is totally confidential only you can read your journal.

Fast Sunday

Fast Sunday will be this Sunday March 25th, 2012 due to General Conference the following weekend and Easter in April.

Wednesday Happenings ~ March 21st, 2012

This week we will be doing family history.  I LOVE family history.  On our last youth temple trip I was able to prepare about 20 of my family's names to be baptized and confirmed members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  One of those names was my dear, sweet Grandpa Oien.  I was surprised and touched when Zack got up in Sacrament meeting and spoke of his experience in the temple when he said he got to do a special name and he felt more of a connection to him.  I know that we are doing the work of the Lord.  We are so blessed to be able to do this work and have this spiritual connection to our family members who have passed.  It is an amazing feeling to be touched by the spirit!  I hope that everyone can make it this Wednesday to get started on preparing your family history.  Please bring a family pedigree chart.

Love, Sister Tollefson
