Activity Days!!

I have been lucky enough to be assigned to be the Activity Days leader at our church.  Activity Days is a program for the 8-11 year old girls where we have fun activities twice a month and teach gospel principles along the way.  We help them earn their Faith in God award and develop their testimonies of the Savior.  Our activities center on 4 areas, Developing Talents, Serving Others, Learning and Living the Gospel and Preparing for the Young Women Program.  In addition to completing 8 goals in each area, the girls are also encouraged to pray daily, reads the scriptures regularly, pay tithing and attend church meetings regularly.  It is really a joy to get to teach these amazing girls.

So this is one more thing I get to add to my plate.  Thank goodness it's something I'm excited about and looking forward to.  What makes it even better is that I get to share the experience with 2 of my daughters, Brandee and Brinlee!  My partner and I have some really fun activities planned, so stay tuned and check back every other week for new ideas.  Most of the projects/activities would also work well to keep kiddos entertained and busy during the summer months, so keep that in mind as you read the blog!


  1. So many fun ideas! I was Activity Day Leader several years ago. It was one of my favorite callings. The 8 year olds loved everything we did. They were just excited to be part of something great! Keep up the good work. These little gals are our future.

  2. Activity days has quickly become one of my very favorite church jobs. We have so much fun and it has stretched my creativity, which is good! I really love the girls I work with!
