Spiritual Spa Night with Free Printables

Last month for our Relief Society Mid-week Meeting (enrichment night), we did a "Spiritual Spa Night". I will be the first to admit that sounds a little hokey, and I was pretty iffy about the idea at first. But really we just got three amazing speakers, and when you put a loose theme and cute handouts with it, more people come so...

The first speaker talked about keeping your testimony "polished". She loosely based her talk on the "Steps of a Pedicure" found here. I made these little handouts, printed them on brown craft paper and tied them to dollar store nail polishes (which actually weren't as crappy as we thought they'd be).

The next speaker talked about cleansing. This could go a lot of directions, but she chose to base her talk on Elder Holland's talk "Like a Broken Vessel". We made a simple face scrub with lemon, coconut oil, and sugar and put it in baby jars with these labels printed on return address sticker sheets.

The third speaker was a massage therapist and she talked about how when she was training they had to learn the importance of receiving as well as giving. I really loved her talk. We often focus on the importance of giving, but it's so important to receive too--for our sake and that of the person offering love/service. We printed these on card stock and put little chocolates on them.

At the end, everyone took a little bag to fill with each handout. For refreshments we had fancy waters (you know with fruit and herbs in them) and fruit and dip. It seemed like everyone enjoyed themselves and many tears were shed. Victory!
