February Value ~ Divine Nature

Complete the following three Value Experiences.  Have your parent or leader sign and date each experience after you finish.
__ 1.  What are some of the divine qualities of a daughter of God?  Read "The Family: A Proclamation to the
          World", 2 Peter 1, Alma 7:23-24, and Doctrine and Covenants 121:45.  In your own words, list the
          divine qualities discussed in your reading.  Think about how you can discover and develop each of
          these qualities.  Record your ideas in your journal.
 __ 2.  Increase your understanding of and appreciation for womanhood.  Read Proverbs 31:10-31 and two
           talks on womanhood from a conference issue of the Church magazines.  Review what "The Family: A
           Proclamation to the World" says about being a wife and a mother.  Then ask your mother or another
           mother you admire what she thinks are important attributes for being a mother.  List the attributes in
           your journal.  Then choose one of those attributes and strive to develop it.  After two weeks report
           your success to a parent or Young Women leader.
 __ 3.  Make your home life better.  For two weeks make a special effort to strengthen your relationship with
           a family member by showing love through your actions.  Refrain from criticizing or speaking unkindly,
           and watch for positive qualities in that person.  Write notes of encouragement, pray for this family
           member, find ways to be helpful, and verbally express your love.  Share your experiences with a
           parent or Young Woman leader.
Complete three additional Value Experiences.  You may select from the following options or write your own.  Your parent or Young Women leader must approve those you write yourself before you begin.  Have your parent or leader sign and date each experience after you finish.
 __ 4.  Memorize the sacrament prayers in Doctrine and Covenants 20:77,79. During the sacrament, listen
           carefully to the prayers and think about what it means to take upon yourself the name of Jesus Christ
           and how doing this should affect your actions and decisions.  Practice keeping your baptismal
           covenants.  Begin by doing something each day to help you remember the Lord Jesus Christ.  After
           two weeks record your experience in your journal.
__ 5.  Strive to be more obedient to your parents. Read Luke 2:40-51.  Develop a pattern of obedience as
          you make a special effort to do what your parents ask you to do without having to be reminded.  After
          two weeks record in your journal how being more obedient motivated you to want to continue doing
 __ 6.  Develop your divine qualities.  Read Matthew 5:9, John 15:12, Galatians 5:22-23, Colossians 3:12-
           17, I John 4:21, and Moroni 7:44-48.  Memorize your favorite verse from one of these passages.
           Identify the divine qualities mentioned in all these scriptures.  Select one quality, and for two weeks
           strive to make it a part of your daily life.  Record your progress and experiences in your journal.
 __ 7.  Learn the definition of the word peacemaker.  Then find and read five scriptures that teach about
           peacemakers.  Become an example of a peacemaker in your home and at school as you refrain from
           criticizing, complaining, or specking unkindly to or about others.  Pray each morning and evening to
           Heavenly Father for help to do this.  After two weeks write in your journal what new habits you want
           to develop.
