For a young girl turning 12, New Beginnings is such an exciting event. And because it is probably her first experience with the Young Women's program you want to make it extra special.
How to Prepare: Some people are AMAZINGLY creative while others, like me, are creative off of others creativity. (meaning I can copy someone's idea to a T!) For those of you like me, here are a few books that might help you get started.
During New Beginnings we usually explain the YW Theme and Values to the new Young Women coming in. And what is the purpose of these values? To help each Young Woman to one day enter the temple. Check out this amazing video Worth Waiting For. This is a great message to share during New Beginnings or YW in Excellence.
