We are daughters of our Heavenly Father, who loves us, and we love Him. We will 'stand as witnesses of God at all times and in all things, and in all places' as we strive to live the Young Women values, which are: Faith, Divine Nature, Individual Worth, Knowledge, Choice and Accountability, Good Works, Integrity, and Virtue. We believe as we come to accept and act upon these values, we will be prepared to strengthen home and family, make and keep sacred covenants, receive the ordinances of the temple, and enjoy the blessings of exaltation

Rhianne In Salt Lake

Rhianne has a new game for us tonight ... Spot the temple ?!?
My guess is it is the bright white building behind all the others up against the green hill?

Next planned Regional Activity.

The next regional activity, on the 1st of July, is a dance, hosted by our stake but to be held at Manchester Stake Centre. The DJ for the night is Paul Sleem and the theme is BEACH PARTY but don't expect the weather to be sunny !!
Like all dances its 14 plus. Come dressed for the beach 'Mormon Style' and if your not sure what that means check out your copy of Strength of Youth !

Rhianne Mormonator Hoyle

Our roving reporter Rhianne, is currently state-side, on a football assignment. I asked her to share some impressions of Salt Lake and here is what she said

"when we got on the flight there were lots of mormons and in the supermarket there is lots of mormon stuff like young women stuff and jewellry and books. Everytime you go down around theres atleast 3 mormon churches in one view you can see 4 temples" 

As she settles in more I'm sure she will tell us other things that stand out as different to Ashton Stake ! In the meantime Rhianne don't get too used to it, I can't see Chaddy Asda stocking personal Progress books in the near future !

"its been 86 degrees in the shade today Salt Lake Valley is surrounded by snowcapped mountains. The shopping Mall has water fountains that families can go and let children play in. The cost the buy items is a lot cheaper thn Trafford Centre. Been to Hollisters today they have big big sales.........."

Getting Involved

This site is created using a Blogger format. It is easy to get involved but there are a couple of simple things to know.

Firstly you will notice at the bottom of each section you will see a space to "comment" here you can add your thoughts.

This will open a small window that allows you to add your comments.

There are 4 options, if you choose "Anonymous", which is the easiest I won't know who posted the comment so you may want to include your name in the comments ! The best option is to use the top one, which is "Google Account". Setting up a Google account is quick, easy and free, you just need to provide an email address and choose a user name and password. As you will see from the picture my Google account name is RJR.

Another benefit of a Google account is you can choose to follow this blog (or any other)

Following allows you to keep up to date with new items added. Of course you can just add the site to your bookmarks/favourites and pop in now and again. I will be trying to keep things up to date, so hopefully  it will be worth a visit.

You will also notice in the side of the page there are Facebook like options (please use !) and a "follow by email" option which allows you to enter your email and you will get a notification when something is added.

Seminary Graduation

Last night was our Multi Stake Seminary Graduation, which involved Ashton Liverpool and Manchester Stakes. Presiding was Elder Stephen C. Kerr with all 3 Stake Presidents on the stand.

Many of our Young Women were recognised for their achievement in completing the years study. We also had 2 graduates, Melissa Ferguson and Lucy Fletcher. Kim Williams received a Certificate of achievement . From the Young Men Joseph Walsh graduated.

The evening started at 7.30 but we had been asked to be their ready by 7.15. It seemed only Ashton stake got that message as we were the only stake there till about 25 past ! More did arrive though and by the time the meeting was under way the chapel at Manchester Stake centre was full.

The evening quickly developed a Scottish theme as our very own S&I coordinator Luke Kerr shared some thoughts and pointed out that we stand out even if we don't realise. He illustrated this by telling of his journey to Aberdeen to watch Celtic play. The day took a turn for the worse when he was forced to accept a ticket in the "wrong" end in order to see the game. He quickly realised that despite his best efforts he stood out ! Reminding us that we stand out as church members for all the right reasons.

After the business of recognising all of those who had qualified for a certificate this year, we heard testimonies from some of the graduates.

The final speaker was Elder Kerr who spoke on several subjects and told some funny stories including Luke as a 4 year old at a football match singing to the crowd "I am a child of God"  while sitting on his dads shoulders in the queue. Elder Kerr also reminded our Young Men they had a Priesthood Duty to serve a mission, and spoke of his ancestors missionary work.

As with all church activities there were refreshment afterwards in the cultural hall.

If I have missed anything you liked about the evening feel free to add it in the comments below !


Would you like to share a brief description of a Young Women activity you have held and enjoyed, or are planning to hold ? The idea of this site is to pass on ideas and inform others in the stake of fun things you have been up to.
Its real simple, just send an email to the address at the bottom of the page and we will transfer it to here. Include the title you would like and pictures if you have any.
