When Life Gives You Lemons Relief Society or Young Women Activity with Social Distancing Options [Free Sample Download]

“When life gives you lemons,” the old saying goes, “make lemonade.”

If you’re human, life’s given you a lemon or two, or, maybe a bushel or an orchard. From momentary problems to life-long challenges, the sourness of hurt, disappointment, despair, and pain are inevitable parts of living.

And during this time of social distancing and economic upheaval, many of our fellow members may be struggling. That’s the idea behind my newest printables. Inspire and uplift your Relief Society sisters, Young Women or ministering assignments with these new designs. (Scroll down to the bottom of this post for the download link to a free sample pack.)

2012 LDS Young Women’s Personal Progress Calendar

You can find the 2016 Personal Progress Calendar here.

Here is a great project to do for a YW activity that will inspire your Beehives, Mia Maids and Laurels the whole year through:  a 2012 Personal Progress calendar!  We made these at a recent Young Women’s Personal Progress activity and I thought I would share this inexpensive project with you.

Encourage your Young Women to work on their Personal Progress every month of the year.  This six-by-six-inch calendar fits perfectly in a locker, on a desk or dressor or hanging next to a mirror.

It can easily stand up on its own and be placed on a nightstand, desk or dresser to be in full view every day.

Designed to resemble social media, the calendar features interactive elements including a plan-for-the-year journaling page, Personal Progress goal suggestions, favorite scripture page, monthly personal goal areas and a year-in-review evaluation page plus a testimony page. Every month includes a value suggestion, an inspiring quote, suggested Personal Progress goal and a scripture.  If you want to add your own values, quotes, Personal Progress goals and scriptures on the monthly goal pages, check out this post.


Personalize each calendar with optional scrapbooking embellishments, ribbons and buttons and use your choice of papers and cardstock for further customization.

I’ve included step-by-step instructions as well as printable calendar pages in a .pdf file, which you can download by clicking here. It will need to be unzipped before you can use it.

If you want to customize the monthly goal pages, read this post.

NOTE:  The instructions are at the beginning of the .pdf file, the printable pages are at the end. It is a large file and may take a little while to download.

I used one of my favorite new tools, a Zutter Bind-It-All, to put together my calendars, but you can bind yours with a Cerlox, staples, rings or any other binding method.  Or, you can print the calendar pages and hand them out each month to your girls.

Remember, this project is for noncommercial, personal or Church use only.  Don’t share my file with others in any way, simply send them here to download their own copy.

Thank you!

And keep an eye out here for more great projects–the next one I have for you is amazing!  Your girls will love it!
