Hello friends! It’s Marissa from Prickly Pear Design Co.  Have you heard? The Mutual Theme for 2018 has been announced!  And today, I’m sharing a fun Peace in Me  Book of Mormon Reading Challenge that fits the theme perfectly. The 2018 Mutual Theme scripture is D&C 19:23: Learn of me, and listen to my words; walk in the meekness of my Spirit, and you shall have peace in me.” For me, the announcement of the Mutual Theme is a little bit like… Read more »

Hello friends! It’s Marissa from Prickly Pear Design Co.  I’m excited to share a Young Women Personal Progress Activity with you today. Every morning for the past two weeks we’ve been driving to & from swimming lessons. Our route takes us right by the Meridian, Idaho Temple which is still under construction and is scheduled to be dedicated this Fall! We love seeing the progress on the temple each time we drive by. Most of the work is done on the… Read more »

General Conference Study Sheets

I have this amazing friend, Danielle. Each week she is stuck in the car with me for 2 hours as we drive to and from our weekly ‘Gathering’ for Pathway (haven’t heard of Pathway, check it out HERE!). For two hours we talk about all kinds of things. A few weeks ago she shared something with me that her Religion teacher shared with her, and she told me I needed to make a printable. Her teacher had shared a great system… Read more »

LDS YW Personal Progress Rainbow

A few years ago I served as the Personal Progress Advisor in our ward. I loved coming up with ideas to encourage the Young Women to work on their Personal Progress. I have been released from that calling for quite some time, but I still like to come up with fun ideas to get Young Women to work on their Personal Progress. This ‘YW Personal Progress Rainbow’ idea has been an idea that I have had in my mind for a long… Read more »

LDS Personal Progress Halloween

It’s always fun to come up with a Personal Progress incentive around the holidays. While at the Dollar Store a couple weeks ago, I found these eyeball gum balls and thought they would make a great Personal Progress Halloween Treat. Halloween is on Monday, but these treats are simple to put together, and would be perfect to pass out this Sunday. I thought the eye gum balls were cute, and would make a great handout to encourage the YW to… Read more »

September Come Follow Me Lesson

My Young Women chapstick handout has been a popular post here on Little LDS Ideas. I created this handout to go along with the September ‘Come Follow Me’ lesson: “How Do the Things I Say Affect Me and Those Around Me”. It’s been 3 years since I first posted this ideas, so I thought it was time for a little update. I have seen this chapstick poem all over Pinterest. It has been used for Activity Days, YW Camp Pillow Treats, and now a YW lesson handout! I… Read more »

General Conference Quote Jar

A couple weeks ago I saw an idea for an ‘LDS General Conference Quote Jar’. I really liked the idea, and it was similar to another idea that I found a few years ago called ‘Conference Preserves’ that I shared about here. I LOVE the idea of writing/typing your favorite quotes and placing them in a jar to read over the next 6 months. Each day for the next six months, pull a quote from the jar and ponder what it teaches. Keep a journal… Read more »

February YW Personal Progress

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support! During the month of February everyone is thinking of LOVE….and candy (I hope I’m not the only one).  I had so much fun creating my Visiting Teaching idea this month, that I thought I would use the same idea for a great Personal Progress idea! AND since Valentine’s Day falls on Sunday this year, this would make an awesome Valentine to pass out to your YW. It’s yummy but it… Read more »

We are 3 weeks away from General Conference and I’m sure it will be here before you know it! I always enjoy General Conference weekend, and I especially love the Spirit that is felt in our home and the amazing talks that are heard. Each year I plan on trying my best to prepare myself and my family for General Conference, but most of the time I don’t get to plan for it as well as I’d like. A few weeks… Read more »

It’s back to school time…well, almost. Since it’s right around the corner I decided to create a few gift tags for Primary & YW. We need to remind our Primary teachers how much we appreciate all they do, and what better way than a cute little gift. While I was at Target the other day I saw some great packs of sticky notes in the $1 zone. I picked up a few…for myself…then thought they would also be great as… Read more »
