Your Happily Ever After // Your Once Upon a Time

It's already been a few months since I was asked to work with the young women (YW) in my area as the secretary of their organization.  I have mixed feelings about this secretary job.  It's the 5th time I've been a YW secretary (in addition to four other YW callings, so I know the pros & cons of other callings), and there are things I love about this position and other things that drive me nuts.  So far, this time around is proving to be a similar experience ... still love the same things and I gotta work on those things that drive me nuts ... or just learn to let them go. But I always have fun and enjoy the girls so much!!  I've been busy with lots of jobs and we are getting ready for our upcoming "Christmas Extravaganza"!!

My first big project as secretary was to make handouts to go along with a lesson that our president taught one Sunday.  The lesson was great & based off of  Dieter F. Uchtorf's talk Your Happily Ever After.  I also picked up his book, Your Happily Ever After, a while back in Costco.  If you follow THIS link, it looks like you can get the book for FREE on your Kindle.  Our president took the letters that spell the word royal, and came up with an acronym type thing to go with each letter of the word.

R - rely on your relationship with the Savior {D&C 38:7}
O - obedience to God's commandments {D&C 25:15; D&C 14:7}
Y - yearn for & keep sacred temple covenants
A - act upon spiritual promptings
L - love yourself & others

Now for the handout ... I'm considering getting these blown-up & framed for my daughters' bedrooms because it's such a great message for girls of all ages ... even grown-up girls. :)  For handout purposes, we got them printed as a 4x6" print at Costco using their luster finish (DO NOT get glossy!).  If you want to blow-up the handout, then stick with an 8x12", 12x18", 16x24", etc.  Costco has AWESOME poster sizes too and it's printed on a thick, almost cardboard, type paper.  I highly recommend it if you are wanting a print that large.  I got an equal number of prints of each of the color combinations.  I was worried that the one that's more pink wouldn't be as popular as some of the others, but ALL color combinations were very popular among the girls & leaders in our ward.

**Instructions for getting the JPEG/Flickr files for this handout:
1.  Click on one of the thumbnails below for the photo/printable that you desire. The enlarged photo/printable should open for you in Flickr. 
2.  Right-click on the enlarged photo that opened in Flickr.
3.  Select "ORIGINAL".
4.  A new page with the photo should open in Flickr.  Towards the top, find where it says, "Download the original size of this photo" and click on that.
5.  At this point, you will choose what program you want to use to open the photo or where you'd like to save the photo on your computer.
6.  Once the photo is saved on your computer, you can upload it to Costco's photo department or any photo-developing website of your choice.
