25 Ideas for Faith Personal Progress Value Projects

Need some inspiration for your Personal Progress Faith Value Project?* 

Here are 25 of my favorites to get you started:


1. Write your testimony in Books of Mormon and deliver them to friends and/or give them to the missionaries to hand out to investigators. 

2. Gather family stories that strengthen your faith and upload them to the memories section of familysearch.org. (You could also make a scrapbook or family blog.)

3. Write a song or poem that represents your testimony. 

4. Create a work of art, video, collage, etc. that depicts your faith. 

5. Make a quiet-book with pictures of Christ to help a child focus on the Savior during the Sacrament. 

6. Be a news reporter for a day and interview someone whose faith you admire. Edit a video or write a transcript of the interview. 

7. Write about a time your faith was strengthened and submit the article to the New Era

8. Learn how to bake bread and donate a batch for use in Sacrament meeting. 

9. Bear your testimony through music by volunteering to play hymns at your local hospital or nursing home. 

10. Plan and carry out an activity such as New Beginnings or Young Women in Excellence. 

11. Find quotes about faith and design memes/edits to share online through Facebook, Pinterest, etc. Don't forget to add #sharegoodness to your posts. :)

12. Choose a favorite scripture hero and prepare/present a Family Home Evening lesson about how their faith helped them fulfill their divine role.

13. Learn about the faith-filled lives of early Pioneers by watching 17 Miracles, reading stories from General Conference, or by using the Family Search Pioneer Ancestor Search Tool. Record how their examples can help you have strength to carry on. 

15. Strengthen your faith in the atonement by memorizing the words to your favorite sacrament songs, The Living Christ, or a compilation of scripture verses about the Savior. 

16. Conduct the music or play the organ during the the sacrament hymns for one month.

17. Exercise your faith by overcoming one of your fears. Get better at talking to people, take swimming lessons, or even intern at a local dentist office. (Am I the only one who's afraid of his pointy drills?) Note: Be sure to seek counsel from your parents/leaders to ensure you don't do anything too dangerous.

18. Make hair bows, flower clips, embroidered towels, bowties, scripture bookmarks, or other small gifts for the Primary Presidency to give to the children being baptized in your ward. 

19.  Sew a baptism dress for a sibling, convert, or child in need.

20. Prepare to share your faith with others by going on splits with the Sister missionaries and studying Preach My Gospel.

21. Share your faith with others by participating in a missionary related activity such as hosting the missionary discussions in your home, assisting with an open house, or organizing a seminary social.

22. Read Alma 32 and learn about how faith is like a seed. Explore this principle by researching, planning, and  planting a garden, flowerbed, tree, etc. for yourself or someone in need.

23. Increase your faith in God's love for you by maintaining a daily journal. Look for ways the Lord's hand is made manifest in your life. (For guidance, see this talk from Pres. Eyring)

24. Teach a child how to bear their testimony. (This Testimony Glove Activity is super fun!)

25. With permission from your bishopric, decorate one of the bulletin boards in your meetinghouse with inspiring messages about faith in Jesus Christ.

* Personal Progress is part of the youth program of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It is similar to an Eagle Scout award but is aimed at strengthening the faith of Young Women. Participants complete a series of value experiences and one ten-hour project for each of eight values (Faith, Divine Nature, Individual Worth, Knowledge, Choice & Accountability, Good Works, and Virtue).

    1. Thank you, Shelby! <3 That means so much to me! I was nervous about switching it up and I'm still working out some kinks, but it's been fun to experiment with. :)

      Though I wish I had done it myself, I actually bought a template on Etsy and then edited it from there. Otherwise, I would totally do a tutorial. Maybe someday I'll have cool programming skills, but for now I'll just have to beg Google for mercy. :P

      I hope you are having a fabulous day, too!

      Hugs!
