After many years of hard work, Whitney was presented with her Young Women's Medallion today in Sacrament Meeting. They have many requirements that they fulfil for each of the 8 Young Women values and then a Value Project for each one. They are supposed to take at least 10 hours to complete, but most of hers took much longer. For her projects she:
Danced in the Temple Celebration for the Prophet
Planted a Garden
Volunteered at Courage Reins (therapeutic horse back riding for disabled children)
Menu Planned/Shopped/Cooked meals for a month
Learned to do all the chores in house for a month
Read Book of Mormon
Produced a Documentary on how to get a book published
Served as a school Senator
She said: "Through serving people I was able to grow my testimony."
Whitney, we are so proud of the lovely young woman that you are and the wonderful choices you are making in your life. We love you!
