BABY GIFT IDEAS:

 Our Relief Society gives a pair of baby socks with a comment, "Welcome Little One! May your life be filled with the
blessings that come from walking in righteousness. Love, The ____ Ward Relief Society Presidency." This is on an
approximately 3"x2" cardstock. The text has been done on a computer and they've added a blue footprint stamp (I
suppose it's pink for girls). They've added a hole in the top right corner and have tied a ribbon to it. Then the card was
attached to the cute little socks, 2 pair. (Idea by Wendy Hickman)

CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS:

 Cute packaging idea by Jenny Funk
 For Christmas gifts we always give the sister's their manual for next year with their name on it and a list of the lessons
and dates for the upcoming year. Inside we also put a bookmark with a quote, or our goal for the next year, or one year
we individualized them and put their goal as a visiting teacher on the bookmark. We also do a treat of some sort - last
year we did a bag of M&M's with the story of the true meaning of Christmas using M&M's. The year before it was a

plastic gift bag with chocolate covered popcorn, etc. We hand the books out to the sisters at church and any that don't
come for two weeks we divide those up and go with the visiting teaching supervisors and take them to their house. This
way we are sure that every sister in the ward gets a contact during the month of December. (Kellie Lyon)

GIFT IDEAS:

 In celebration of Valentine's Day, we are making aprons for all the sisters in the ward. We are a small ward, so it's not
too taxing to make simple aprons. The children are going to decorate them with stenciled hearts and their signatures.
With leftover material from other projects and fabric paints we have on hand, this activity is costing us $0 to do. (Idea

LEADERSHIP HELPS:

 7 keys to being a successful leader
 Calling Request Form for a Relief Society Teacher - This form is used to call new teachers to Relief Society. Just give
this form to the bishop so he can review their new responsibilities with them.
 E-Vite - If you have the e-mail addresses of your sisters, this is a free service that allows you to create a customized e-
mail to send reminders for different events...you could even send them to your presidency to remind them of
meetings...etc.
 Here's an idea I've used in every organization where I've served, whenever I have a presidency meeting. I print out the
agenda with the items that need to be discussed so we know how to divide our time and then at the bottom of the paper I
write "ACTION ITEMS" where everyone can write down what they specifically need to do after the meeting. That way
they'll remember details and what their stewardship is. It also helps to divide labor and help account for what happened
at the meeting next time you get together. (Trina Boice)

 Updates - Each ward I've lived in does this a little different but one Relief Society Presidency Member sent around a
clipboard asking for sisters e-mail addresses. Then they e-mail a newsletter each week, with talk highlights (very brief),
new callings, announcements, birthdays, and all that happened in sacrament meeting (new callings, who spoke, etc.),
Sunday school and Relief Society. It was great because if you missed church, you still knew what was going on and felt
included on what was going on.

 Compilation of Ideas for R.S. Birthday Celebration
 For our R.S. birthday one year, we had an Old Fashioned Fashion Show. We asked the sisters to dig out their old
wedding dresses, prom dresses, whatever they could find. As Enrichment Leader, I MC'd the event. I was able to wear a
beautiful handmade dress from the 40's. The young women were our models. That was really fun because many of the

girls found out they could not fit into their mothers dresses. As each girl walked out, I introduced the dress or outfit, any
history of the dress, and whom it came from. Each sister also brought their own beautiful china cup and saucer and
sipped punch and nibbled on dainty treats. We had a wonderful and memorable evening! (Idea by Julie / ga01212009)

 Mad Hatter Tea Party
 Oh the places you'll serve by Faye Sayre
 Our program's theme was: "How to be an 8 cow woman" based on the Johnny Lingo movie (the old one). We had the
movie first, then two speakers: "Holy Cow"- on how to become more spiritual and "Mad Cow"- on how to handle life's
stresses without going crazy. They were excellent. Then we had our luncheon: Hawaiian Haystacks, tropical slush, and
birthday cake for dessert. We decorated everything luau style to fit the theme. Our tables were decorated in pink, yellow,
purple table cloths with a short glass vase with tropical flowers. We had wall decorations too. Everything was great, the
speakers, the food and the attendance. (Credit Unknown)
