Free Personal Progress Tracker

Say hello to the newly redesigned Personal Progress tracker at A Year of Progress!

Not only does it have the tracker, it has many more features. There was nothing wrong with the old one, but this one is even better. That's what I'm all about, always improving!

Print a free copy here.

Hopefully this helps!

Another product I will happily recommend is "He Loves Us and We Love Him" by Laurel Christensen.*It is a great book all about Personal Progress and the YW Values. I got it before I turned 12 to learn more about the program I was going into and loved it. It's a cute book and great gift; you could give it to a new Beehive along with this tracker!

Enjoy! See you next Sunday!

Good Works Personalized Electives

Do you need to complete electives? Did you know that up to two of them can be personalized? 
Let's start on them!

In my opinion, (besides maybe Knowledge) Good Works is the easiest to come up with personalized elective ideas for! So I have a plethora of ideas on the worksheet, and some space for you to write your own.

Hope you enjoy! Get your free printable worksheet here.

Another thing I want to mention is this Mormon Message: in it two Young Women try and see how many Good Works they can do in three days. It's a cute little video and I have been wanting to share it awhile, so here is the video the Church made:

I think it's a good example of how many good personalized Good Works Electives there are! ;)

General Conference Activity Packet for Teens and Adults

  • You'll notice this may be a little outdated. (It was made in early 2018!) This General Conference, I am trying different note taking approaches to find the best one for a brand new notes packet next conference.
  •  You may see an option to request access to this Doc. I cannot grant access to edit this Doc because doing so will edit it for all viewers. This was also created in another platform so it isn't editable in Docs even if you make your own copy.
  • Can't wait to create a new notes packet like this to share for the next conference! 

As General Conference approaches, I've found that there are plenty of little kid coloring and activity packets. However, for teens and adults, you can take notes in a stodgy notebook, or just sit there.
So this General Conference Activity Packet was created. It's great for doodlers and artists like me, but anyone can use it.

With fun games to play, creative note-taking strategies, and tons of doodle space, get your General Conference Activity Packet here.

It comes with:

- a cute cover page
- game page for each session
-a how-to use guide
-two types of note-taking pages for every talk

Cover page.

Sample activity page.

Note-taking pages. (How-to use pages are included.)

And of course it's free! 😉

I did this assuming that there are eight talks for each session. I just thought it would be better to have more than enough than too little. If there are less, a little doodle room never hurt anyone! Hope you enjoy!

I decided not to mar the packet by placing my disclaimer at the bottom, so please, please, be respectful with it! Please do not change it in any way, claim it as your own, link directly to it, etc. You are more than welcome to feature it on your website! Just please link to this post and mention where you found the packet.

Now. Excuse me as I go print one for myself....

Easter Personal Progress

IF YOU’RE READING THIS... hey! This post is old! Check out some even better prints over here.

Yes, Easter is a month away, but it's never to early to begin planning, right?

Happy Easter from A Year of Progress!

Just like at Christmas, there's the fun and politically correct aspects of Easter -- the Big Bunny, eggs, candy, and the pastel color palettes -- all of which I enjoy -- but I always try to remember the real reason behind Easter.

I feel like sometimes Easter kind of gets short-changed. I mean, we have enormous parties and get out a plethora of decorations. It's a pretty big deal -- and sadly, sometimes a bigger deal than Easter.

I love, LOVE, Christmas too, but it's definitely important to remember: if our Savior hadn't died for us, atoned for our sins, and been resurrected, then His birth -- Christmas -- wouldn't have been a big deal. Of course, it can go both ways, but I digress.

Easter is important, okay?! :)

I love how the Church has social media campaigns on Easter as well, so here are all of them from the past.

I love, love, LOVE the Because of Him video which came out in 2014. It is amazing and still brings tears to my eyes. We played it at my brother's baptism and are set to put it on as my little sister is baptized. Here is the video that the church made:

In 2015, it was the He Lives campaign. Here is the church's video:

The #Halleujah campaign in 2016 was great; I loved how they also had the large chorus! My aunt actually sang in it so it was fun trying to spot her face. That year the church made the video below.

The #PrinceofPeace campaign 2017 was great -- reminding anyone of Peace in Christ? ;)

In 2018, the church has decided to go with the 2014 message again. Go here to learn more.

Yes, we are going to do some Easter Personal Progress ... eventually. But first, I need to share some of my favorite Easter themed crafts (religious ones, of course.) I scoured old Pinterest boards and some of my favorite LDS blogs, and here's what I came up with:

First up, I found Resurrection Eggs by sofestive.com. I remember doing them in Activity Days a long time ago and they were fun to make! Her bio says she lives in SLC, UT, so I'm positive she's LDS and added it to my mental list of good lifestyle LDS blogs.

A Year of FHE -- you know that one right? (Beautifully designed FREE printables for tons of Family Night lessons) I love her blog. Teach a special Easter lesson at FHE using the resources here.

My family and I made a mini Resurrection Garden a while ago which is similar to the one at wearethatfamily.com. It's a super cute idea!

Now, finally, time for the Easter Personal Progress I promised. Whoa, that's a tongue twister!

I broadened my horizons to include the last week of the Savior's life. Yes, some of them may be a stretch, but it's okay.

Integrity 3 -- The Savior atoned for our sins. See how this shows Integrity and other scripture heroes have as well.

Virtue 4 --  Because the Savior gave His life for you, you can repent. Learn more as you complete this experience.

Faith 4 -- In the last week of His life, the Savior introduced the sacrament. Bring the sacrament into your life and your relationship with the Savior.

Faith 5 -- In the last week of His life, the Savior atoned for your sins as well. Learn more about how to appreciate this in this experience.

Knowledge 6 -- Memorize and conduct two hymns. Do two Easter ones (Hymns 197-200) and you're good to go.

Happy Easter everyone!
