Personal Progress Survey

So, I'm conducting a survey as part of my Knowledge value project. I want to know how Young Women feel about Personal Progress. Do they like it? What motivates them to do it? If the YW medallion is enough incentive for them to do it. I love the Personal Progress program because I like setting goals and growing in different areas. It's fun. But I get the feeling that some people just don't like the program. They don't like the leaders nagging them all the time about doing Personal Progress. And as a leader, myself, doing the program for the second time - I wonder how others feel about it. And I wonder if the girls could earn something other than stickers and ribbons if they would feel more motivated to do it. I know that if they got into it they would really love it too - it just seems like starting it is a big problem. So, I've put together some questions using Surveymonkey.com - and I'm hoping to gather some results. Please do the survey and pass it on to all your friends or family that also participate or have participated in the program - this will help me out a lot.

And when the survey closes in about a month or so - I will post some results - you'd have to come back to my blog if you wish to see those -- So you'll have to favorite my blog for the meantime until I post again - on or around April 30.

Here is the link for the survey - and again, if you can help pass it on to friends or family that would be great :)

Best Streets to Trick or Treat in Dixie, Southern Utah

This is going to have to be an ongoing post... what I mean, is I might have to update it again next year.

This is going to be a very big deal this year. My kids have never experienced real American Trick or Treating. I have talked about it, and they have seen it on tv shows over the years and they are very excited. As am I!

This is why I wanted to pick a neighborhood that would be awesome for their first experience. Originally, I had planned to spend the weekend with my brother and his family in Spanish Fork, Utah. They live in a neighborhood with about a million kids so it was going to be perfect... but since the flu has affected everyone lately, and since my whole family was sick to death of road trips since we moved back here, we decided to stay in St. George.

This posed a problem for me. I didn't know where the best street was. After a quick google search, I found nothing! No one has blogged about this, at least, not in the first three or four pages of a google search.

I did find …

Today the children and I got to play with clay at The Tilted Kiln in St. George. I had driven past this pottery studio many times not realizing all the fun things it has to offer.

It's not just a pottery shop, though there is a section that some great local artists have pottery for sale. It has a section of ceramics that you can buy and paint yourself and they will cook it again after that. 

That was fun to see. So many great ideas, from painting a large platter with the family name or something like "Dad's Burgers"to piggy banks and garden gnomes. They also had quite a few Christmas related ceramic crafts to paint.

My kids and I had so much fun browsing the ideas and we surely will find ourselves back in the shop come summer vacation! :)

You can come back for parties or other group activities and they have cla…

Suzy's Closet Dress Rentals, Hurricane, Utah

Suzy's Closet Dress Rentals
692 N 150 W
Hurricane, Utah
435-680-2858
By appointment only.

Last week I had the opportunity to visit with Dena Humphries of Hurricane. She runs Suzy's Closet. It's a non profit Dress Rental in Hurricane. The goal of this non-profit is to provide modest affordable dresses for young women. But, anyone can "rent" a dress - you don't have to be young.

Dena said she had someone going to a Marine ball in Southern California that was older that was borrowing a dress.

The cost to rent dresses is $35 per dress. This covers the cost of dry cleaning therefore, Dena doesn't make anything extra, hence non-profit.

Dena runs this business out of her house, namely out of her living and family rooms.

Why doesn't she call it Dena's Closet? She said because she thought it didn't sound good. She chose the name Suzy because it was cute and similar to her middle name Sue.

How did she get into the business or charity rather?

She got into it becaus…
