Evening of Excellence

In the Mormon church, we celebrate girls and women for who they are, 
and what they are accomplishing in their lives.
The young women (ages 12-18) are recognized for the
 good things they are doing in an event called "Young Women in Excellence."
The girls display to those in attendance like;
family members, friends, other church members, and leaders
what she is working on or completed that year.
Often times girls will perform a skill or talent to the group.
Claire brought some of her amazing artwork and paintings to display
and then spoke about how she has been preparing for her future by taking school
seriously, serving others (like me!!),
and how she's learning that making wise choices
will someday bless her life as a woman, mother, and wife.

Jane brought a recipe book that she's been working on.
She has been collecting and gathering all different
yummy recipes for her future family.
She also displayed gardening tools, her scriptures,
 and a journal (one out of the 30 she has)
to show her dedication to writing her life history.
Women are disciples of Jesus Christ and every woman in the
 Church is responsible for knowing and defending women's divine roles. 
These include wife, mother, sister, aunt, and friend. 
They stand firm and immovable in faith, family, and relief to others.
Women participate in councils that oversee
congregational activities throughout the world. 
By divine nature, they are responsible 
  for nurturing their children and family in their homes.
