For our standards night we used the theme “2 ‘Bee’ Holy”.
“2 ‘Bee’ Holy”
That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God. Numbers 15:40 )
It was an extension of this years mutual theme “Stand in Holy Places.”
“Stand ye in holy places, and be not moved, until the day of the Lord come; for behold, it cometh quickly, saith the Lord” (Doctrine and Covenants 87:8)
Temple President of the Kansas City Missouri Temple, President Hardy and Temple Matron Sister Hardy were our guest speakers.
In their talks we asked them to emphasize how each YW can make herself holy in these times even with all the challenges faced in the world today, to know they can be in the world but not a part of the world. And that we can be holy at all times, in all places and in all things, even as we are bombarded with many outside forces. We wanted our Young Women to learn how to find the strength from within, and that strength comes from our personal relationship with our Heavenly Father.
They did a wonderful job!
We decorated using the “2 ‘Bee'” theme;
We used the Relief Society for the program. The front blackboard and table was decorated.
Small table in the back with “Stand in Holy Places” poster, with beehive jar filled with lemon drops.
Refreshments were in the Young Women’s room. We added color to the room with paper lanterns, honeycomb balls and tissue paper pom-poms.
Refreshments included chocolate covered oreo cookies covered with chocolate transfer in bee patterns on the chocolate or molded chocolate flowers, lemon cupcakes, lemon bars, a “beehive” cake and of course pieces of the old-fashioned candy bit of honey.
There was also mint white Salt Lake Temple chocolates.
There were honey sticks, lemon drops and little jars of honey. Drinks were lemon infused water and lemonade.
“Bee” plates and color coordinated napkins and utensils.
The favors were beehive candles.
