New Beginnings have started in our stake- What is New Beginnings you say?
New Beginnings is an annual event for all young women and their parents. Young women who will reach the age of 12 in the coming year are also invited to attend with their parents. This is an evening to welcome the New Beehives. This event also provides an opportunity for leaders to express their love for the young women, encourage parents to help their daughters in Personal Progress.
Possible subjects to address include:
- Special Welcome for the New Beehives-----Explanation of Personal Progress.
- Presentation of the young women theme, logo, and motto.
- Overview of the youth theme and a discussion of activities planned for the year.
Patterson Ward - Your Passport to Embark on New Beginnings-
Each girl spoke on one of the eight Personal Progress values....all did a wonderful job. I loved hearing their testimonies.

"Jenna Gauthier did a fabulous job putting together a night for the New Beehives coming in this year. It was her last Personal Progress Project and she nailed it! Turlock 1st Ward has 4 amazing "new" Beehives that will add a lot of fun to their YW program. Their parents took a few minutes to spotlight each girl so everyone could get to know them better. What a great night! " - Melissa
(I was unable to attend this event....we divide up as a Presidency when we have several on one night)
I will be sharing more New Beginnings through out the next month as I attend.
