Personal Progress

In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints  we have a program called the Young Women Program. The Young Women’s program is consisted of the 12-18 year old in the ward. In the Young Women’s program we do this thing called Personal Progress. While doing Personal Progress we do experiences and projects that help us strengthen our testimony in the Lord. Also, they help us understand each of the 8 values better. The values are Faith, Divine Nature, Individual Worth, Knowledge, Choice and Accountability, Integrity, and Virtue. I started it when I was 12 along with everyone else in my church. They also allow us the opportunity to help and serve others. I am still working on completing all the projects now.  I am hoping to complete it by early November and I only have a short ways to go! So far doing Personal Progress has helped my become a better person and strengthen my testimony. In order to compete Personal Progress you have to complete 6 value experiences for each of the 8 values (except for Virtue, you only have to do 4), each ranging being able to complete them in one sitting to 3 months. After you complete working on each experience for each value you start on the value project. Value projects have you do ten hours of something that help you show what you have learned while doing the experiences. For each project there are some ideas of what you could do, but you can make up one to do (again, except for Virtue, for that we read the Book of Mormon). Although each project does have to get approved by your leader. For each value you get a ribbon to put on you book marker for your scriptures. At the end when you complete all of them you get your Yong Women’s medallion. The Young Women’s medallion is for girls the equivalent of become an Eagle Scout for boys. After you receive your Young Women’s Medallion you have the option of trying to get the Honor Bee. When you get your Honor Bee if means you went above and beyond. A girl in my ward has received this and I hope I will when I am done with Personal Progress. To receive an Honor Bee you have to read the book of Mormon again and do 40 more hours of service. some which include helping others receive their Young Women’s Medallion.  You receive all these awards at an annual Young Women’s in Excellent that showcases what all the Young Women have done in personal progress that year. I hope I will be able to earn my Young Women’s Medallion at the next Young Women’s in Excellent.

Hellickson Family Pedigree Charts




My mom and dad shared these with Madison Hellickson and I… You can see both Hellickson Family and Aadnes Family names on these pedigree/family tree charts.

Let me know if you need bigger pictures of these (if they’re hard to read).

Even though none of these say “Michael James Hellickson”, I belong under parents Vernon Martin Hellickson and Barbara Lucille Harter.

PLEASE, upload your family tree here… Let’s all help each other.  :)
