It’s here! My 2017 Personal Progress calendar is finally ready for you!In 2012, when I created my first Personal Progress calendar for the YW in our ward, I had no idea how popular this project would become. Since then, my Personal Progress calendar projects have been download well over 4,600 times! It is an amazing honor to help inspire Young Women all over the Church to complete their Personal Progress with my work and I am so excited to present to you my latest design for 2017.
My 6×6-inch Personal Progress calendars make wonderful New Beginnings handouts for your girls, or you can have your Young Women assemble and customize their own calendars during a Personal Progress Mutual activity. No matter how you use this download, I hope it inspires your young women.

This year, my design is inspired by a cheerful color palette and one of my favorite fonts, Nathalie.
This calendar features monthly editable calendars and goal pages plus pages for 2017 plans, favorite scriptures, end-of-year evaluation, testimony and journaling. Plus, I’ve included a blank page for you to customize. Add as many of these pages as you like!
Also included in the download are individual JPEG files for you to use in newsletters.
In the download (link at the end of this post), you’ll find both a full 6×6-inch cover image (pictured above) plus an alternate smaller cover label you can glue to your choice of patterned paper or cardstock and customize with stickers and scrapbooking supplies. (I strongly recommend you print the calendar on your printer’s highest-quality setting for best results.)
You can make these calendars freestanding (to put on a night stand) or hanging (for lockers or bedroom walls). Instructions for both types are included in the download.
I like to bind these calendars using my Zutter Bind-It-All, but you can use Cerlox, rings, ribbon or stitching for yours. Play around and see what works for you. I get my Owire and 6×6-inch chipboard covers in bulk from Amazon, but you can find great deals all over the web. Supply lists and full assembly instructions are included in the download.
It’s quick and easy to add your own goals, scriptures, quotes, calendar events and more to these calendars when you use the editable PDF files.
Simply open the PDF file in Adobe Reader (get this free software here) and type your text into the text boxes. Make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Reader to avoid any issues.
(When you use the editable PDF files, fonts, font color and spacing are all set for you. If you want to change them, you will need to open the JPEG files included in the download in your word-processing or photo-editing software and add your own text boxes.) Save, print and assemble!
Remember, please do not share these electronic files in any way.
You MAY print copies to share with others.
All my files are for noncommercial personal or Church use only.
You will need to UNZIP the DOWNLOAD before you can access the files.
