Why? Personal Progress

 Personal Progress (you) can change the world
        "When you save a girl, you save generations. She will grown in strength and righteousness. She will marry in the house of the Lord. She will teach her children the ways of truth...I see this as the one bright shining hope in a world that is marching toward self-destruction" ("Standing Strong and Immovable" Gordon B. Hinckley)

It can change You

By small and simple things are great things brought to pass.  As you set and accomplish the small goals of your Personal Progress experiences...great changes will take place in your personal life and in who you are.  You will notice those changes as you become more like our Savior.

Because You Are Really Busy

huh?  That is why I can't do Personal Progress, right?! If you are like many young women, your life is packed with a lot of good things.  You have school, homework, music lessons, sports, hanging out with friends, family time, church meetings and activities, an after school job,..etc. How could you possibly fit in Personal Progress?

Sunday is a great day to pull out your Personal Progress and work on some goals, read some scriptures, read a conference talk, etc.

Personal Progress helps you make time for things that will be important to you long after a test score or sports event have passed. 

Personal Progress allows you to "get credit" for all the good things in you life you are already doing.  Open it up and see what you have already earned.

Take time and make time for Personal Progress.

Personal Progress Leads You To the Temple

"Personal Progress is a temple preparation coarse" (Julie B. Beck)

Have you wondered why the temple is a symbol in the Personal Progress program.  It is on the medallion as well as on the front of our Personal Progress book.  The First Presidency has said:
"We want the young people of the Church to be valiant and righteous servants of God, dedicated to living each day so they can go to the temple and receive God's greatest blessings for them.  Therefore we have chosen the temple as a symbol for the youth of the Church" (Guidebook for Parents and Leaders of Youth)
"The way to prepare to make temple covenants is to remember and keep the commitments you've already made."

Personal Progress Can Help You Reach Your Dreams

Who do you want to be?  What kind of person do you wish to become? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Fulfilling your dreams can start with one Personal Progress goal.  Then another, and another.
In time, you will be on your way of becoming the person of your dreams.

What dreams will Personal Progress help you achieve?
