YW Personal Progress Divine Nature Activity: "Do-nut" forget your Divine Nature

Need some ideas for a YW Personal Progress activity on Divine Nature?? What about, "Do-nut" forget your Divine Nature!!


Man, I love the Personal Progress Program!! Divine Nature is such an important value to gain a testimony of!! How much more happier and manageable life is, when you know that you are a daughter of God, that He loves you and you have the potential to become like Him!

Below are some ideas of what we did for our Personal Progress activity on Divine Nature...

Who's the Baby Guessing Game...
Before the activity I asked all of the mom's to send me pictures of their daughters when they were babies. I then put them all onto one folder in my cell phone, so I could hook it up to the TV and flip through them for our game. The leaders' baby pictures were in there too, as well as the girls who were not at the activity.

To Begin the Activity, I had, Jenny Phillips song, "Daughter of a King" playing.

Then I stood up and explained that today's activity was going to be all out Divine Nature. I asked the girls if they know what Divine Nature was, then I read to them what it says about Divine Nature in the Personal Progress book:

"Be partakers of the divine nature. … Giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; and to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; and to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity (2 Peter 1:4–7).

I have inherited divine qualities, which I will strive to develop."


We then played the Who's The Baby Guessing Game. Each girl was given a numbered piece of paper. (See Free Download button towards the bottom of the page) We have a large Beehive group, so our paper was numbered 1-19. Beforehand I had saved each picture onto a file on my phone, which I then hooked up to a TV and I was able to flip through each picture and they had to guess who's baby picture it was. (You could also do this on a tablet or laptop) After they were done guessing, we went back through the pictures. I had them tell me who they thought it was and then we told them the correct answer. It was pretty funny, because there were some girls who didn't even know their own baby picture.

The girl with the most correct guesses received a cute chap stick. I think this was the favorite activity of the night!


I then tried to tie it into Divine Nature. That we each spirit daughters of our Heavenly Father came to this earth as little babies. We have each inherited divine qualities from Him. Throughout our lives we can better develop these divine qualities. 


Each girl then received the Divine Nature Personal Progress Packet (See Free Download button towards the bottom of the page). 

The first thing we did was read through, The Family: A Proclamation to the world. (I printed off a copy for each girl) I asked them to listen for divine qualities and the roles of a mother as we read it. 

After reading it we discussed the requirements for #1 and #2 experiences. For number 2, the leaders shared attributes that they think are important and have helped them be a mother. 

The rest of the night we just went through and talked about each value experience, we did not read every scripture, the girls were invited to do that at home. 

Something I did with this packet was I put a start date and a goal finish date on most of the values. The girls really liked this, because then they would not procrastinate and would have a date set of when to finish each experience.

To close the activity we watched this video:

Daughter's of God Video

Followed by sharing my testimony of how important it is to know their eternal value.


Then we had DONUTS!! (It might be fun to make donuts too)
