A few weeks ago our area was SUPER lucky!! As women, mothers, sisters, friends and daughters, we got to meet with 3 Leaders from the General Auxiliary Presidencies of the LDS Church for a Women's Conference! For New Jersey - it was not only an EPIC and rare event, it was very well attended and one of the most uplifting conferences I've participated in. I was so happy to be there with my girls and we were lucky enough to participate in an intimate focus group with one of these amazing ladies; a super special opportunity. I filled my notebook with thoughts and quotes and spent several days pondering on many of the things they shared. More than once during the meetings, reference was made to 5 specific actions we can do to assure we are living a righteous life... it was referred to as the "Top Five," or as "The High Fives" of the Gospel. I love concise counsel that is easy to remember, particularly if it's catchy - it helps it stick!
Later I was approached by the Young Women Leaders in my own congregation to design some things for the teenage girls to reinforce some of what was taught. Of course, I was thrilled! They wanted a creative way to help the girls identify and remember these 5 important points. They left the how and the what up to me... so I got to work. It took me a while to think through how to approach it - and since it was for the teenage girls, I decided I needed to speak their language - so I started brainstorming trendy, twitter-ish, social-media-ish type words and it hit me! SELFIE!! That's what the five points are all about!! Taking a personal inventory of those 5 areas is like literally taking a "Spiritual Selfie!" YAY!! The girls will LOVE this! And... most importantly, it'll help them remember it!
As I started the design process, I wanted something to outline the 5 points visually... then something they'd be likely to keep/use on a daily basis to remind them. I found the key chains online (HERE). These are 2"x1.5"acrylic key chains that fit the 1 7/8" x 1 3/8" image as designed. The key chain is what I hoped they'd use and carry with them - and the bookmark would be a good reference where the points were outlined specifically. They were a hit with both the leaders and the girls - so I decided I definitely needed to share them here as well!
UPDATE 6/26/14 : I've added a 2.25" purple round image to this file.
A friend found 2.25" acryllic key chains at AC Moore - so this is just another option.
Have a great day, friends!
