Thankful for YW!

I am thankful that I get to work in the Young Women.  It is what I love. 

I have a strong testimony of the Primary Program and the great good it does for teaching little ones the right things at a young age.  It is amazing what they know.  That they above many of us recognize the love of their Savior and the importance He is in our lives.  Even those little nursery tikes can recognize this in simple lessons and songs.  But I love the Young Women.

Tonight they wanted to do cheesecakes.  What a great dessert night to do with them before the holidays.  Hopefully they will go home and try it on their own and WOW their families.

I'm in charge tonight, I guess.  I'm not the greatest cook so go figure on that one.  Anyway, I have a few simple recipes that I am sharing with them tonight:  Mini Cheese Cakes and No-Bake Cheesecake (thanks to my hometown Emerson II Ward Cookbook - tried and true recipes by some of the best).

I searched online and found some templates for recipe cards.  Printed those.  Copied and printed recipes form cookbook.  Going to let them cut and paste and laminate.  Wanted them to do a little hands on.  There's only so many that can do the mixing. 

I'm so thankful for so many great women who have such great ideas and put them out there online for me to use.  How they do it, I have no idea.  I'm lucky to just do the activity.  How they do a step-by-step of the whole process as they create it is beyond my realm!  I'm grateful none-the-less.
