Secret Sister Day #3; Some Value-able Items

In our Young Women's program at our church, they have values that the girls focus on. Each value has a designated color to represent that color and to help in remembering the meaning and purpose of the values. The values with their colors, scriptures, and meanings are as follows:

* Faith (white)(Alma 32:21) : I am a daughter of Heavenly Father, who loves me, and I will have faith in His eternal plan, which centers in Jesus Christ, my Savior.
* Divine Nature (blue) (2 Peter 1:4–7) : I have inherited divine qualities which I will strive to develop.
* Individual Worth (red) (D&C 18:10) : I am of infinite worth with my own divine mission, which I will strive to fulfill.
* Knowledge (green) (D&C 88:118) : I will continually seek opportunities for learning and growth.
* Choice and Accountability (orange) (Joshua 24:15) : I will remain free by choosing good over evil and will accept responsibility for my choices.
* Good Works (yellow) (3 Nephi 12:16) : I will nurture others and build the kingdom through righteous service.
* Integrity (purple) (Job 27:5) : I will have the moral courage to make my actions consistent with my knowledge of right and wrong.[5]
* Virtue (gold) (Proverbs 31:10) : I will prepare to enter the temple and remain pure and worthy. [9]

Since the girl that was assigned to me had just turned 12 (the age where they go into the YW program), I figured it would be nice to give her a few things about the values. So, I printed out a little booklet (actually, since I was out of ink, I asked a friend to do this), made this little scripture bookmark that you can tuck into the spine of your scriptures and use the ribbons as bookmarks and added ribbon in the value colors to the scripture marking pencil too.
