YWIE 2014 - WEEK 9

Week 9, our final week, is Virtue, value color Gold.  Rapunzel from Tangled is the last princess.

(Healing Song)
I will not remove
My Virtue from me
Fol-low the Savior
When He says "Learn of Me"
(holding the scriptures)
Pray and read this book
Give service daily
Our Savior invites
To all "Come Follow Me"
"Come Follow Me"

YWIE 2014 - WEEK 8

Week 8 was Integrity, value color is purple.  Mulan was the princess I chose for this value.

Who is this girl I see
Brimming with Integrity
I am standing as a witness
of the Lord
I'll keep my standards high
Show the world, won't be shy
Then my countenance will show
Who I am inside
And your countenance will show
Who you are inside

YWIE 2014 - WEEK 7

Week 7 is Good Works, value color is yellow.  I chose Belle, from Beauty and the Beast, but didn't choose a song that Belle actually sang.  So now I present to you.....Lumiere!

(Be Our Guest)
Ma Chere Mademoiselle
It is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure
That I welcome you today
And now I invite you to relax,
pull up a chair
as I proudly present,
Your Good Works Song!
It's our quest!  It's our quest!
To put service to the test
It's our privilege to help other
We all know that we'll be blessed
Just start small and observe
Why, we've all been asked to serve
Serve your family, Help your Mother
Watch your sister, Watch your brother
We can clean, We can cook
Maybe read someone a book
Make a dinner then deliver it by 6!
Go on, pick up some groceries
Those you serve you'll appease
It's our Quest, It's our Quest! It's our Quest!
(Big Finish!)
Chore by Chore
One by One
Till you service is all done
Then you'll plop into your bed and fall asleep
Next day we'll start it again
'Cause we're strong Young Women
It's our Quest!
Don't Be Stressed!
Do Your Best!
And You'll Be Blessed!!!!!

YWIE 2014 - WEEK 6

Week 6 is Choice & Accountability, value color is orange.  I chose Pocahontas as this week's princess.

(Colors of the Wind)
I know you think you don't have any freedom
You live at home and follow mom & dad
But if you look around I know you'll see that
You are free to make your choices, good or bad
Understand that choices have accountability
It's up to you, be wise for goodness sake!
Everyday take opportunities to choose "Good"
Let's be happy with the choices that we make
Let's be happy with the choices that we make
You can make good choices now
To the Father you can vow
And be happy with the choices that you make

YWIE 2014 - WEEK 5

Week 5 is Knowledge, value color is green.  I chose Ariel, from The Little Mermaid, as the princess and this is my FAVORITE song!!!

(Part of Your World)
(showing off my cell phone and iPad)
Look at this stuff, Isn't it neat?
(showing my pinterest board on the iPad)
Wouldn't you think
My collection's complete?
Wouldn't you think I'm the girl
The girl who has everything
Look at this bag, Treasures untold
How many wonders, Can one purse hold?
Looking around here you think
Sure, she's got everything!
I've got lipsticks and earrings aplenty
I've got polish and tissues galore
You want bobby pins girls, I've got 20!
But who cares - No big deal - I want more
I wanna be where the people learn
Gaining knowledge, gain knowledge and answers
Turning some pages in.....
What's that word again?
Checking your pins, doesn't take you that far
Minds are required to ponder and think
You can't just get by on your....
What's that word?
....Good Looks!
Let's strive to learn
Let's strive for more
You'll be amazed what God has in store
It causes no pain
Stuffin' your brain
Full of Knowledge
What would you give
If you could learn about the Savior?
(hold up your scriptures)
What would it take
To spend a day reading this book?
Learn of His plan and understand
The King wants the best for His daughters
Bright Young Women, sick of sinnin'
Ready to grow!
And ready to know,
What your leaders know
Ask 'em your questions
They'll tell you answers
What's a testimony?
And why does it.....
What's that word?
Now it's my turn
I want to learn
All about God's eternal big plan
Listen to me
You all can be
Full of Knowledge!!!

YWIE 2014 - WEEK 4

Week 4 is Individual Worth, value color is red.  The princess I chose is Snow White.

(Whistle While You Work)
The worth of souls is great (whistling)
Say no to sin
Find Christ within
And see your own value
When people are not nice (whistling)
Give them your best
Forget the rest
And share what makes you, you!
When friends are feeling blue
You know just what to do
Forget yourself and try to be
The daughter Heavenly Father sees
These compliments - don't fight (whistling)
You are so smart
Take this to heart
You're precious in His sight!
(for the record I can't whistle....I just sang la-la-la's)

YWIE 2014 - WEEK 3

Week 3 is all about Divine Nature, value color is Blue.  I chose Jasmine, from Aladdin, for the princess.

(A Whole New World)
We all came to this world
To grow in righteous endeavors
Strive to copy our Savior
and his Divine Qualities
We try to emulate Christ
Follow footstep by footstep
Virtue, Knowledge, Faith, Temperance
Don't forget the Charity
Divine Nature
So many traits I can pursue
And when I set my goals, I'm in control
To work on finishing all 8 values
Divine Nature
Like our Savior
Oh can't you see
You're meant to be
& Progressing
Along with me

YWIE 2014 - WEEK 2

Week 2 started into the Young Women Values.  Our first value is FAITH, value color is white.  I chose Giselle from Enchanted.

(Happy Little Working Song)
All right everyone, time to learn of Faith
Come my little friends
As we all sing a happy little faith filled song
May my little voice be clear and strong
Come let's talk of Faith now
How knowing and believing
Is something we're all achieving
As we kneel to pray...
It's a happy faith filled song
Faith, small like a little seed
To tend it is a need
As Faith is growing
Show the Lord that we'll work hard
Serving with a grateful heart to Him is showing
Hey, We're growing!
You can do a lot when you've got
All the tools you need for deep study
Work alone or find a close buddy
We can help each other
Grow Faith in our Savior
So friends show your good behavior
We're a happy Islands Ward
So sing along
If you cannot sing then hum along
As I finish with our happy faith filled song
Ah....wasn't this fun?!

YWIE 2014 - WEEK 1

Week 1 was all about introducing our theme: Come Unto Christ & Be a Light to the World!  Elsa, from Frozen, was chosen as the first princess.  Here's her introduction song:

(Let It Go)
We're all born with the Light of Christ
It resides in you and me
It's a blessing from our Father
Colton's my missionary (sung like: mish - a - nary)
(you know I had to get Colton in there somehow!)
This world is swirling with confusion all around
You can share you light
Everywhere in town
Just let it out
Just let them see
Be the pure girl, God wants you to be
Come Unto Christ
And let them know
Let your light show
Let it Glow
Let it Glow
Can't hold it back anymore
Let it Glow
Let it Glow
Share your light forever more
Choose The Right
and you'll find your way
So Come Unto Christ
Your projects are due in 66 days!



That was our theme for this years YWIE.  Remember all the fun I had last years as we walked down the Yellow Brick Road.  This year was full of songs to get the girls excited and I chose Disney Princesses to help me out! We started with a princess that could properly sing an introduction song about our theme and then eight more princesses to sing about each of the Young Women Values, which are Faith, Divine Nature, Individual Worth, Knowledge, Choice and Accountability, Good Works, Integrity and Virtue. 
(The songs will link up as soon as they are posted)
(My Favorite!!!)
(technically Lumiere)
The room was decorated with lots of lamps, it turned out really nice.  We served apple slices with caramel sauce and toppings.  We also had some yummy, gooey popcorn!

I'm so proud of all of our talented and hard-working girls!  Can't wait to see what we do next year!
