Mutual Activity and Personal Progress
This mutual activity helped the YW complete the 4th value experience under FAITH. Not only did each YW work on completing Faith value experience number four but she also made a Sacrament book filled with pictures of the life of Jesus Christ which she can use during the Sacrament to help her focus on the Savior.
INSTRUCTIONS (as you can see for this activity it was a little more involved than what is found under Faith Value number 4.
Faith Value 4 Personal Progress activity instructions (.doc format)
“4 . Learn more about the sacrament . Read about the Last Supper in Matthew 26:26–28; Mark 14:22–24; and Luke 22:17–20 . Establish a pattern of pondering during the sacrament by listening carefully to the sacrament hymn and prayers . Think about why we partake of the bread and water . After three weeks of following this pattern, write in your journal some of the promises you make as you partake of the sacrament and remember your baptismal covenants and what you do to keep those promises . Record in your journal how your understanding of these promises has strengthened your faith in the Savior .”
The activity was set up in stations. The scriptures required in the value experience were part of the activity, but to help each YW understanding and knowledge of the sacrament two conference talks were included. Each girl received a folder which had a copy of the talks and a small writing journal and a pen to write. Each YW also made a sacrament booklet with pictures of the life of Christ. This booklet was to be used during the sacrament as a visual reminder of what Christ did for each of us.

Station Number 2
At Station Two there was a copy of the requirements for this value experience as found in the YW Personal Progress Book. Also, each YW had to read the assigned scriptures found in Faith Value Experience Four and she also had to read two articles (one a conference talk “Sacrament Meeting and the Sacrament” Elder Dallin Oaks, Nov. 2008, and the other in the Ensign “Reflections on the Sacrament Prayers” Tanner, May 1987), on the Sacrament and write in her journal.
