Being a convert to the church at the age of 18, I did not have the opportunity to participate in the Young Womens program as a youth. Since joining the church almost 10 years ago, I've had the opportunity to serve in different positions within the organization. I was in Young Womens when the Personal Progress program changed to what it is now. During the previous times that I had a Young Womens calling, I had desired to work on Personal Progress. But I had never really put my heart into it. Earlier this year, when I was called into Young Womens again, I felt a very strong desire to really focus on accomplishing all of the Personal Progress experiences.
Tomorrow I'm meeting with Julie to check off about 8 experiences that I've accomplished and discuss with her my goals of accomplishing more experiences within the next few months. I'm really excited that I am only 2 experiences and 1 project away from finishing the Faith Value requirements.
I can honestly testify that when I was working on the value experiences earlier this year, the Lord was with me a lot more. It had really helped me to focus on my scripture study and helped me to stay in tune with the spirit.

What a great idea! I want to do that too! We should have all the women in our ward do something like this, hum..maybe I'm on to something....
WOW...while I was reading your post the spirit was very strong. I never did my personal progress and never thought twice about it until now. Thank you.
Katie! I love you!!
Your my bestest friend ever!
I hope when you are in YW... you will do your personal progress!
I know I will now!
Man... I completed personal progress but never got my pendants cause they didn't have them in at the time and then I went to college and... just never got them. :( WAH! But GO YOU!! :)
