Okay, now I sew a little—mostly straight line things like baby blankets and curtains—but I’ve never considered myself as someone crafty. But the other day our Young Women’s presidency decided the girl’s needed something special if they completed our challenge of reading the Book of Mormon. Now the president and second councilor are jewelry makers so we went that direction and you should see what we made. (And I’m so proud of myself. Due to Dell being on call our out with the missionaries a lot I cranked most of these out by myself while watching TV. It feels good to have made something that really intimidated me in the past, but in actuality was pretty easy and loads of fun. Anyone else need a courage necklace? Dell’s on call again this week.)
Here they are.
We handed this one out to all the girls today. They all get “courage.” When they complete the Book of Mormon they’ll get the circle that says “strong.” (Which fits in perfectly since Elder Bednar challenged our stake to read the Book of Mormon looking for “in the strength of the Lord.”) The scripture on the card is from Joshua 1:9. It’s the young women/young men theme for this year and one of my all time favorite scriptures. “Be strong and of a good courage, be not not afraid neither be thou dismayed; for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.”
