I am really excited about this journal!
This journal was originally designed to be for a Young Women in Excellence type event,
but I have changed it quite a bit and now I feel like it can be of use for any woman (young or old).
The idea of this journal is that you pick a scripture hero from anywhere in your Bible or Book of Mormon.
You study their life and then you imagine that hero in all sorts of situations.
The idea is that these great people in the scriptures won’t just be characters to you,
but rather they will become real people with real lives with friends and challenges and ups and downs…. just like us.
There are 21 topics that you will study in this journal…
Each time considering how your hero would have valued and lived each standard in their life and how it contributed to their greatness.
And then you will apply them to yourselves.
Because that is the idea… this isn’t a “Scripture Hero Journal” this is a “Becoming Like My Scripture Hero Journal”.
Every standard from the For the Strength of Youth pamphlet is a part of this journal, along with a few other principles like “scripture study” and “prayer”.
One reason why I feel this would be really beneficial for mothers and grandmothers is because not only do these standards apply to us as well, but I feel that we need to be very keen and aware of these standards and what the youth are being counseled to do. The more we know the pamphlet and the specific counsel given, the better we can counsel and lead our children. We need to stay on top of every updated pamphlet.
So all you need for this book is 1- your scriptures and 2- the For the Strength of Youth pamphlet (physical or online).
Every page in this book is different and specified to the standard discussed.
And it is all designed to be fun and meaningful.
And very applicable.
I also made it so if you want to personalize it… you can have fun coloring the words in and making it super cute.
After each standard is a page for quotes and personal thoughts you had while studying.
I will be providing a page of great quotes to choose from as a resource to you… some of my favorite quotes of all time.
So basically when you have finished this book, you should have a great understanding of the standards and great insights and quotes to go along with it.
This would be a GREAT thing to do for Young Women in Excellence!
Each one can choose a hero and have the goal to have the book finished before the Evening in Excellence.
And the girls can be the speakers as they review their favorite things that they learned. In fact the last three pages of the book are a review of what they learned and it is a great template for a talk.
This would also be a great 10 hour project – it would just need to be pre-approved by their leaders.
If you are a Young Women leader and would like to use this for your whole group, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your ward information and the number of copies you are needing and we will send you a great discount code for bulk orders.
This book is found in our bookstore HERE. This is not available as a pdf download currently but we have plans to create that in the future.
