Craft and Emma Smith movie...

Here is a picture of the main craft we are making at girls camp. I will share pictures of all the smaller crafts once I have samples made. As I mentioned before the theme is "Like the Stars". "Steadfast and Immovable" is also part of our theme. It's a 12X10 piece of pine that I painted and sanded the edges. I glued an 8X8 piece of sheet metal to make it a magnet board. I painted wood stars and glued round magnets to the back. I had Kim cut vinyl with the words "Steadfast & Immovable" I drilled holes and hung it with ribbon. I will have lots of colors to choose from for the girls to paint their boards to match their rooms or taste and the ribbon and vinyl will be available in black and white. The vinyl will also be in several different fonts to choose from. I think the girls and leaders will all like this craft. It's such a good reminder for them to remember who they are and to be true to their values while striving to be the best that they can be.

Tonight we took the young women to the Emma Smith My Story movie. While we are up at girls camp each ward has to do a devotional on someone. We drew Emma Smith's name so I was thrilled when I heard this movie was here. She was the wife of our first prophet, Joseph Smith. This was such a powerful and emotional movie. I cried quite a bit during it. The trials Emma and Joseph went through were unimaginable. My chest was heavy and my heart ached. She was such a strong amazing woman. I think the girls have a whole new appreciation for Emma Smith and their devotional at camp will have so much more meaning to them. I know it deeply impacted me. Here is a clip of the trailer to the movie. For you local Arizona readers It is showing at the Cinemark in Mesa on Dobson and the 202 until June 12th. It really is a must see. I'm taking Mark there to see it again before it's gone. I found a listing online of where it's showing around the country for those of you who are interested. It seems that the theaters that get it are only showing it for a week or 2 so you have to jump on it if you want to see it.

I want some type of plaque that read "My Prince Has Come - His Name Is Daddy" for Madison's room. Any ideas?

Jane said...

so cute!
I am sure the girls will love it.
Where did you get your sheet metal?

I saw Emma too last week-end. I liked it, but it had many of the same scenes as does the Joseph Smith movie, I felt like I had seen it before.

Marilyn said...

We saw Emma last weekend and it was INCREDIBLE. It will be a definite purchase when it comes out on DVD.

Brandon and Camille Smithson said...

Very cute craft!

Andi said...

You're so creative Jolene! The girls are going to have so much fun and love making those adorable craft boards.

I watched the trailer on the Emma Smith movie. I would enjoy seeing it if it were to play in this area.

Andrea said...
