News about Mormons, Mormonism,
and the LDS Church

Internet: EFY, YW and More Personal Pages

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- In addition to some fine websites for missions and LDS-oriented businesses, this week a somewhat unusual new site is dedicated to the Especially for Youth programs, attempting to help youth remember their experiences there. Also notable is one woman's "cartoon dolls" for young women and several personal pages, including one in French.

The Especially for Youth site tries to extend the EFY experience with snapshots, testimonies and feelings and stories. Meanwhile, the YW Princesses site's "cartoon dolls" each represent one of the seven values taught to Young Women in the LDS Church.

Among the personal sites, a French-language site by a Quebec youth that covers young women and primary is likely to be useful, although it would be nice to have more information on the site. And a Spanish-language site contains some translations of early LDS materials into Spanish, however, again it would be nice if the site had more.

Newly Listed Mormon Websites:

Brazil Salvador South Mission

Well-designed website offering news and information about the mission, a database of returned missionaries, new missionaries and church members in the mission, as well as message boards and chat rooms.

New Revelations

A web directory to 'Temple Worthy' businesses, i.e., businesses that sell products that meet a 'temple-worthy' standard. Site currently doesn't have any links, but is soliciting submissions.

YW Princesses

Images of a set of "cartoon dolls" the author created for the use of Young Women and their leaders. The seven dolls correspond to the Young Women's values; Faith, Divine Nature, Individual Worth, Choice & Accountability, Knowledge, Good Works, and Integrity.
