Our Purpose in Life- The Red Headed Hostess

purpose in life

Here is a handout for lesson #7 which is “Our Purpose in Life”.

This is meant to go with the last half of the lesson which teaches about how we can learn the Lord’s will to what direction our personal lives should take.

There are quotes included with the 5 points as well as a place where the young women can take a moment and find a scripture that goes with each point.  I would instruct them to find a scripture that would make a great theme scripture and represents how they will use that point in their own lives, and then I would have them share those scriptures.

Here is the printout about our purpose in life: yw lesson pdf

And… here is a post with a printout for Patriarchal Blessings.

And one last thing, check out our website here.


  1. SO SO SO grateful I stumbled onto your website. I love love love everything on it. This past Wednesday in YW I used your BofM scripture marking examples for our Personal Progress Night. Several of our YW are going to mark their scriptures for one of their 10 hour YW projects. So please keep the great ideas coming. I’m addicted, in a good way. Thanks so much!

  2. I just had to stop by and say that your site has inspired me SO much! I have already started implementing some of your scripture study & marking tips. In the last week I have made your delicious chocolate chip cookies (the ULTIMATE recipe, for sure!), I’ve made your fabulous Sunday roast (that gravy is to die for), and on Sunday morning, when I got a phone call telling me I needed to sub and teach this lesson in YW in just a few hours, I didn’t sweat it – because I knew you had this beautiful handout ready and waiting for me. I just hopped online, printed it out, and used it in my class. The girls loved it, by the way – they commented on how pretty it was and even asked if they could share their “theme scriptures” next week, after they had time to finish filling it out! I am just so happy I found your site and I felt like I had to share my joy. You are now one of my top go-to sites for ideas and inspiration! Thank you! 🙂

    1. Wow! Thank you for sharing all of that. Especially about the Young Women – that is exactly what I was hoping would happen! My goal whenever I teach is for them to want to go and learn more on their own. Thank you for sharing that! And so glad you liked the recipes!!! And – I saw your message about Sister Beck’s talk — so glad you have it now – I don’t even know how many times I have read that talk. I love it!
