I am going to tell you a secret about the Personal Progress value projects.  I know many girls who feel the hardest part of Personal Progress is finding a value project.  Sometimes they they, “Yes!  I found something that interests me.  This is the best project ever!”  Then they hang their heads in despair when they realise it is for value they have already completed.

If that is you, then this secret is especially useful.  If you already know about it, good job!  Keep using it.

Here it is:

(Not including Virtue).
All value projects can be used for any value.

Personal Progress's Best Kept Secret

Yes it is true, and I hope many of you realise and knew this before you read this post.  If you didn’t, then keep reading and I will show you how to use this secret to your aid.  If you did know it, don’t turn away now.  Read on to learn how to improve your use of this secret.

The Method

As I said before: All value projects can be used for any value.  (Except Virtue of course because you already have a project for that: Reading the Book of Mormon!)

A value project is simply completing an activity or project which demonstrates your knowledge of the value.  For Divine Nature you show you know what your Divine Nature is by developing divine qualities.  For Choice and Accountability you show you can make wise decisions.

The method for applying projects to any value is simple.  It may take a little brain power, but with enough thought you can do it in no time.

Let’s use the 2 suggested Individual Worth project as an example.

This project asks you to tutor someone in an academic subject, music, or sport (or other area you know).

Let’s Do It!

Faith: In D&C 50:21-22 we learn the Holy Ghost helps us when teaching.  As you tutor someone in an academic subject, music, a sport, or other area, strive to live worthily of the Holy Ghost so he can help you teach.

Divine Nature: Heavenly Father is a teacher. This means as His daughter you can also develop this skill. List the divine qualities which are needed to teach (e.i. patience, kindness, ect.) Strive to develop these qualities as you tutor someone in an academic subject, music, a sport, or other area.

Individual Worth: Tutor someone in an academic subject, music, a sport, or other area

Knowledge: Tutoring is a wonderful skill to have, and you can learn so much from it.  Develop this skill by tutoring someone in an academic subject, music, a sport, or other area.  Write in your journal how your own knowledge grew because you taught someone.  Also write how this skill will help you in the future.

Choice and Accountability: A teacher helps a student make wise decisions in their studies. As you tutor someone in an academic subject, music, a sport, or other area, help them develop good study habits.

Good Works: Serve someone by tutoring them in an academic subject, music, a sport, or other area.

Integrity: Integrity as a student is vital to educational progression. List ways a student can have integrity when they study/practice.  As you tutor someone in an academic subject, music, a sport, or other area, help them learn why it is important to have integrity in when they study/practice.

The wording is a little different and each might have a different requirement, but all of these projects are about tutoring someone. You can do the same with any other project.

Keep the main idea (writing a book, preforming in a band, entering the science fair), and relate it to each of the values. Who knows? You might even like the project more when you relate it to Faith than you did in the beginning when it was attached to Knowledge.
