September Come Follow Me Handout Idea: Chapstick Poem

My Young Women chapstick handout has been a popular post here on Little LDS Ideas. I created September Come Follow Me handout idea to go along with the lesson: “How Do the Things I Say Affect Me and Those Around Me”. It’s been 3 years since I first posted this ideas, so I thought it was time for a little update. 
LDS Chapstick Poem for Young Women
I have seen this chapstick poem all over Pinterest. It has been used for Activity DaysYW Camp Pillow Treats, and now a YW lesson handout! I think this would also make a great handout for a Relief Society lesson.
The original poem has a different line at the very end of the poem:
“I’ll speak in just the kindest words, and I won’t forget to Pray!”

I decided to change it up a little bit so that it fit the topic a little better:

“I’ll speak in the kindest words to those around me every day!”


September Come Follow Me Handout Idea: Chapstick Poem

Are you teaching a lesson on speaking kindly to others? Looking for a great handout to go along with your lesson? This chapstick poem handout is perfect! Here is what you’ll need!


September Come Follow Me Handout Idea

You Will Need:

• Chapstick

• Chapstick Poem Printable

•Quote Tag (optional)
• Tape or Sticky Dots (found at any craft store)
• Scissors/Cutter
 First, you will need to get your chapstick. Once you’ve got your chapstick, go ahead and print out my ‘chapstick poem’ printable (link below). I would suggest printing the handout onto cardstock.
Now…cut them out. Once you’ve got all that done, you can start putting your handout together! To do this, I just rolled pieces of tape, and then stuck the tube of chapstick on. Sticky Glue dots also work very well.
LDS September Come Follow Me Lesson Idea
I decided to include a cute little quote tag with my updated printable. The quote I included is a quote from Jeffrey R Holland:
“Our words, like our deeds, should be filled with faith and hope and charity.”
You can choose to attach the quote tag right onto the tube of chapstick with some cute washi tape OR you can place it behind the chapstick when attaching the chapstick to the card.

The YW were so excited to get chapstick. I hope when they use it they can remember the lesson and try to be careful of the words that they use.

I also used some of THESE great handouts from Courtney Aitken.

I hope you enjoy my September Come Follow Me Handout Idea. Would the YW in your ward enjoy this chapstick handout? I hope they do, and if you use them, I’d love to hear how it goes.

 Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

  1. This is a fantastic idea! I’m the president of the laurel class in my ward, so I come up with a majority of the ideas for our young women and I think this is awesome! I know a lot of the girls in my class use chapstick since it’s dry here so maybe I’ll do this soon to put a little spiritual spin on something common and everyday. Thanks for sharing!

    Sheena, I am sorry to bug you about this, but I cannot for the life of me locate the link for the chapstick sticker graphic. I am only able to find the poem/handout. What am I missing? This is such a great way to deliver an important message. Thank you for sharing!

      1. Erika

        That’s the one I was seeing on Pinterest! Thank you so much!!

        1. Yay! All of my images on that post weren’t working, so that’s probably why you couldn’t find it. I updated everything so you should be able to find the right download. 🙂 Glad I could help.

    trying to think of an eye opener to assist with my lesson on how do I guard my virtue? Do you have any last minute ideas?

    1. Hi Melanie! I know you already had your lesson, sorry I didn’t have any ideas to share. 🙁

    1. Hi Susan! You should be able to click the link to download/print. Is it not working? I’ll email it over as soon as I get back to my computer. 😊

  13. Sara

    Why did you feel the need to change the last line and leave out prayer?

    1. I decided to change the last line so that it went with the theme “Do the words I say affect those around me”.

    Thank you in advance 😊
