New Beginnings
{Stand in Holy Places}

Last Tuesday was New Beginnings for the Young Women in my ward. The event turned out great - all the decorations, talks, and refreshments turned out perfect. The youth theme this year is: Stand ye in Holy Places. To go along with the theme "shoes" were used to represent "standing" in holy places.

For my talk, I spoke on the Young Women values. I assigned a shoe to each value and shared how while wearing that shoe it can help us stand in holy places. For example, your "Rain Boot" represents Divine Nature. Each of us have inherited divine qualities, and we should strive to develop those qualities. By putting on your rain boot, you can accomplish anything - through any storm in your life :)

Below are my talking points for each shoe. You can also download the decorations that go along with the theme here.
