It is hard to believe the New Year is just around the corner.  In just a few weeks we will leave behind 2015 and welcome 2016.  This time of year is a time of change, resolutions, and new commitments.  This is an excellent time to create a value project or two.

Lately, I’ve been inspired with the idea of One Word.  If you google this phrase, you will see a couple different websites explaining this idea.  They each go about it a little differently, but basically you choose one word for the year and focus on becoming that word.  They can be nouns, adjectives, or verbs.  Some examples include: Kind, mother, run, believe, and so forth.

One Word Value Project

I thought this would be an excellent idea for a value project, however, I thought a year might be a little long.  If a year sounds the good amount of length for this project to you, then go for, but I’ve adapted this idea into a month for each of the value projects.
The project is simple, but will take much work.

  1. Choose the value you wish to complete
  2. Choose a word which relates to the value (See suggestions below).
  3. Find quotes, General Conference talks, videos, scriptures, books, ect which teach about that word.
  4. Find activities which will help you become that word.
  5. Strive each day for a month to become that word.
  6. Remember to record your progress and write what you learned at the end.

That’s the basic idea.  You can add a lot of personality into this project.  Choose an area you need to work on, find a word which matches that area, and focus on that.

Below you will see the Young Women values followed by a list of suggested words.  (I realise you cannot complete this project for Virtue, but I thought I would add some words for that value any way.)
