Patience vs. Kindness

So started reading The Love Dare last week. I am not doing very good at getting 1 chapter a day completed. I am only on day two. I have however already had an aha moment. It says "Kindness is love in action. If Patience is how love reacts in order to minimize a negative circumstance, kindness is how love acts to maximize a positive circumstance. Patience avoids a problem; kindness creates a blessing. On is preventive, the other is proactive."
I had never thought about it that way. I have always put patience and kindness into the same group, that being patient is being kind. They way they put it in the book is so eye opening. Kindness can make patience obsolete, amazing.

Young Women Binders

So this weekend I helped Carey put together some binders for the Young Women group at Church. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook then you've already seen the cover.  For those of you who missed it, here it is. 
Cover sheet image is from 

We also found some good pages online and then revised and created new ones to fill the inside. 

In all we made binders for the;
  1. Laurel Adviser
  2. Laurel Class President
  3. Laurel Class 1st Counselor
  4. Laurel Class 2nd Counselor
  5. Laurel Class Secretary
  6. Mia Maid Adviser
  7. 2nd Mia Maid Adviser
  8. Mia Maid Class President
  9. Mia Maid Class 1st Counselor
  10. Mia Maid Class 2nd Counselor
  11. Mia Maid Class Secretary
  12. Beehive Adviser
  13. Beehive Class President
  14. Beehive Class 1st Counselor
  15. Beehive Class 2nd Counselor
  16. Beehive Class Secretary
And binder covers only for the;
  1. Young Women President
  2. Young Women 1st Counselor
  3. Young Women 2nd Counselor
  4. Young Women Secretary
That was quite the project in a short time.

Here are the pages for the Beehive Manual if you would like to see them in more detail. 
The Mia Maid and Laurel Manuals are altered to be specific to their classes. 

What a great time playing on my MacBook Pro and doing something useful at the same time. 
(Yes documents and spreadsheets count as playing for me.)
