Christlike Love Handout (oh, how I miss those Young Women's lessons)

{print from tagteamtopkins on etsy}

Serving in the Young Women's program at church was physically draining, mentally exhausting, and quite possibly one of the best experiences I've had. Sure, teaching music to the younger kids is fun, but I'd be lying if I said that I don't look back with some fondness on spending weeks marinating over a concept or principle and the best way to present it to those sweet girls.

So when the email from a reader (hi Kayla!) came in awhile back saying she had a quote she wanted to use, but couldn't think of how to incorporate it into a handout (read: treat), it was a CHALLENGE ACCEPTED kind of situation.



Obviously this would be *super* cute during Valentine's Day with some heart shaped chocolate, but you work with what you've got, right? Dove/Love=same difference. 
I used the dark chocolate because they're red, but any other flavor (or circle-ish candy) would work too.




There are two handouts per page, and in a perfect world you'd be able to cut the paper exactly in half and it would be perfectly spaced, but alas...I'm not a genius when it comes to formatting. 
So trim it up and pretend it was right to begin with.

  1. I love it when you do stuff like this... in fact I know someone in the need of teacher gifts for the end of the year so I'll be pilfering some of these ideas soon!

    1. The end of the year? Oh yeah - you're on the flip side of us. My mom used to tell us about going to the beach for Christmas when she lived down there. That's so crazy!

  2. You have an Aussie connection? (I mean aside from your girlfriend) That's so cool!

    1. My mom's father was called on a construction mission down there for the LDS church, so the whole family went for 2 years. She was in her early teens, which would've made my grandparents the age I am now, which is unfathomable. In any case, she had a little stash of stuff she brought back, and in it was a kangaroo skin...which us kids growing up thought was hands down the most epic thing on the planet.

  3. What a great idea. You are so clever! Love a simple idea like this with big impact.
    When I saw that first quote by Yeats, it made me smile right away. I know you've been reading and commenting on my Ireland posts (Thanks so much!) and down the road I will be writing a little about our visit to the church grave yard where W. B. Yeats is buried. it's much later in our trip though, so it will be a while.
