New Beginnings - B.O.O.T. Camp

Wednesday, January 6, 2010
We held our New Beginnings program on January 6th.  The theme was B.O.O.T Camp.  This stood for Build Our Own Testimony.  We had fun army/camo decorations and asked everyone to come dressed in camo.  Jeanne came all decked out in army gear (see picture below).  We had a great program that Sister West (Kristin) organized and she talked about the importance of gaining our own testimonies and the personal progress program .  The church just redid the PP program/books and we were able to give the girls their new books along with some other fun army/camo items.  We are blessed in our ward to have so many talented YW.  Heather sang a song she wrote and she was amazing as always.  Lindsay also sang a beautiful song for us.  Then all of the girls sang the Army of Helaman and the Bishop finished up the program with his remarks.  There was a wonderful spirit there that night that we all felt.  To top it all off we had the cutest refreshment and they tasted yummy.  A friend of Kristins makes these fun cookies (see picture below) and they were a hit.  We had a really great time together as YW!
