YW Lesson About Unity and No Camp Pranks

Thank you all for your great words of wisdom about girls camp! I really appriciate your help.

I taught today and it went Really well! I love when we as leaders get to catch a glimpse of the light that is within our girls. They felt the spirit of what we were trying to teach them, accepted it, and found excitement in the "Good" pranks that we have planned.

Have you ever read in Proverbs about the seven things that God Hates? It fit this situation PERFECTLY! The verses are Proverbs Chapter 6:16-19. The two things that turned the light on in the girls' heads were "An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief." They all chuckled when I mentioned Snipe Hunting after "Wicked Imaginations."

I am grateful for the gift of the Holy Ghost that can comfort and wisper truths when understanding is needed. So Grateful!

Sounds like your lesson went great. Sorry I don't have any prank stories. I haven't been called into the YW before. I know the whole plastic wrap over the toilet seat but that is just wrong!

My two youngest daughters had to watch a horrible "good" pranks gone wrong last year. The leaders had said they were allowing positive pranks, but a lot more went on. My daughters choose not to do participate in any type of prank. The worse one they saw was when a new convert to the church had all of her clothing stolen and hidden all over the camp ground. Her grandparents had just bought the clothes for the young women. She never recovered all of the pieces of clothing back. My daughters were very up set to see this happen. They could not believe that a member of the church would do that do a convert or to a child of God.
