YW Mother Daughter Day

On Saturday 15th March, the young women in the stake and their Mums had a mother daughter day at the Deloraine chapel. The day was focused on Personal and Family History. They went around in a group and participated in 3 workshops.

In the first workshop the Young women shared stories and information about some of their ancestors; we got to see some pictures and heard interesting stories from their lives. We had lots of laughs at some of the stories and felt grateful that we had a record of these stories to share and learn from.
The Second Workshop was about the importance of journal writing and the benefits it will give our posterity. We each were given a personal journal and a list of questions to answer with our Mothers about our own childhood and about our testimonies and some experiences we have had.
In our last workshop we talked about using family search to put in our family history stories and pictures. We also had the opportunity to sit with and ask questions with our Mothers about their testimonies and their life and recorded it our journals.
We ended with lunch and got to sit around talking for a while.
It was a great day and we all felt uplifted and felt the Spirit. It was a good reminder of the importance of keeping a journal and recording our history.
