What do I do for their Preparation period?
Every girl or young woman thinking about becoming a Junior Daughter must complete a time of study. During this time the girl develops her personal relationship with Jesus and grows in her love and commitment to God, and His church. The candidate learns about the Order, the Rules of Prayer and Service, and begins practicing them in her own life. For candidates 11 years old and under, use the Study Guide for Primary Grades. For candidates 12 years old and older, use the Study Guide for Youth. A Leader’s Guide is available for both the Primary Grade and Youth Study Guides and includes lesson objectives, activities and guidance for discussion questions. The Study Guides are also available for purchase from the online DOK store. Further, the Junior Daughters Handbook has a section called “Resources for Study” that you may find helpful. Junior Directresses should feel free to follow the inspiration of the Holy Spirit when leading these young sisters in Christ.
