Lesson 1: Daughter of God

For my handout for the girls, I made these cute mirrors for their lockers. I just purchased 3" mirrors from the craft store and cut out a frame for each mirror, glued it on (I found E6000 work the best), added a magnet to the back and then embellished! My girls LOVED these! I have a pazzle, which is like a cricut machine to cut out the frame. I created the design on my computer, printed them out with the words, "I am a Daughter of God" and then ran it through my pazzle machine.

To go along with the mirror, I found a talk by Elaine S. Dalton and I used her quote,

"Young women of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, remember who you are! You are elect. You are daughters of God. You cannot be a generation of young women who are content to fit in. You must have the courage to stand out, to “arise and shine forth, that thy light may be a standard for the nations.” The world would have you believe that you are not significant—that you are out of fashion and out of touch. The world calls to you with unrelenting, noisy voices to “live it up,” “try everything,” “experiment and be happy.” Conversely, the Holy Ghost whispers and the Lord invites you to “walk in the paths of virtue,” “lay aside the things of this world,” “and cleave unto [your] covenants.”

I concluded with this quote and then told them to look in the mirror and remember who they are.  They are beautiful and their light shines for all to see.  It was a great way to end the lesson.  I also, used the recommended quotes from the lesson as a handout with the mirror.  Click here to find it.

IF you need to template for the mirror frames, I have an image of them, or a pdf version.  Use whichever works best for you.

This is for Young Women Manual 1.


  1. I loved this! SUPER cute idea!! Is there any way that I can get a template of your frames, I am preparing this lesson for this Sunday Feb 12,2012.

    1. Jamie-

      I put two links above in my post, that I used for my template. Again, I used my pazzle machine to cut these, so the template I sent you will just be the outline if you want to hand cut them out. If you havwe a pazzle machine, let me know and I can send you the actual file for that, if not, hope these versions work for you. Good luck!

  2. Thank you so much Emily! These will work great! I really appreciate you getting this to me on such a short notice! And thanks for letting me use your cute idea!
