Young Women Lesson 35 Manual 2: Wise Choices

Angela's Lesson Helps are becoming my favorites on SugarDoodle's website.  I added her blog to my sidebar under "YW Helps".

I like to take Angela's ideas and add to them a bit or kinda make them my own, but it's not too much work cause she has some great ideas!  I went with her cookie theme.

I started my lesson by hanging up a recipe for chocolate chip cookies, but I started listing all the things I had to do this past week and why I didn't have time to go to the store to buy ingredients ... I had to bring what I had at home.   We made the recipe "my way".   I replaced the butter with vegetable oil and told the girls it's all the same cause both make us fat.  Baking powder was used instead of baking soda, pepper instead of salt, dark corn syrup instead of brown sugar, York Peppermint Patties instead of chocolate chips, and we put the whole egg in ... shells & all.  I had a helper pouring in all the ingredients for me and then she stirred everything up.  I used Angela's wording and talked to the girls about using our agency to do things "our way" or God's way.

Here are the recipes for chocolate chip cookies & God's recipe for happiness all ready for you to print.

I also used Angela's idea to talk about the story of Joseph & Potipher.  I felt like it was a great example of using our agency and how our consequences (good or bad) are sometimes delayed.  I scattered some of the quotes from the lesson manual throughout the lesson and we closed with this short video:

For a handout, I baked chocolate chip cookies for the girls & attached one of these tags to each bag of cookies: 
I made 4 handouts to a page so you can print at home
with 8.5x11" photo paper or cardstock.

Pin It!

Thank you for sharing your great ideas! I especially appreciate you sharing the handouts and examples all ready to print. A huge time saver for someone who lacks creativity! :)

Great ideas. Question: How were you able to save and share the video at church?

Thanks for the comments!

@Kristi - Check out this blog post I did about getting You Tube videos:

Basically, I just save them to the desktop of my laptop and play them from my laptop ... no internet connection required at the church building. I'd like to do a better tutorial cause this is a question that I get a lot ... we'll work on something with step-by-step instructions.
