I received my Young Women's Medallion today! Since I did not grow up in the church I never had the opportunity to work on Personal Progress. When I was called to Young Women's in AK to be the Laurels adviser I decided that if I was going to help and encourage the girls to do it, and my daughters when they got older, then I needed to work on it as well. So I set out and was almost finished when we left AK. I continued and finished it last year. However I was sick and never got to get in for my interviews with the YW's President and Bishop until last month. And today I got to join the YW for a few minutes and received my medallion!
I have a strong testimony of the Personal Progress program as well as Young Women's. It has helped me become a better daughter of My heavenly Father and a better mother and wife. I truly love and miss all my Laurels! They are such an example to me. I hope that my girls continue to have such wonderful examples in their lives.
