"Value" bracelets

In our church - The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the Young Women have a special meeting at the beginning of the year called New Beginnings. It's to welcome the new girls and to recognize the work of the other girls in the Personal Progress books. I wanted to do something the same yet individual for each of our girls. Something they would want to wear and be reminded of the values they hold dear. These bracelets are what I came up with. Each has an orange, green, blue, yellow, red, white, gold and purple bead. These represent the 8 values found in the Personal Progress book. I had each girl choose 3 charms to put on their bracelets to make it individual. I also found out what their favorite colors were so I could use the colors as spacers. I think these turned out really well. I hope the girls like them as much as I do! I sure had fun making them!

It all started for us when Russell left for Cape Town South Africa on a mission. Candace felt inspired to write him - so she did! We wrote for 3 1/2 years. Candace came home from her mission to the Texas Houston East Mission and we dated for 5 months. We married in July 1994 and have been happy ever after!
