Young Women's Value Characters

After several months, I have finally finished the young women's value characters.  It was tricky trying to think of how to draw values.  I may need to explain a few:  Faith is a gardener because "Faith is like a little seed".  Divine Nature holds a lantern because I think divine nature is like the light of Christ, or that little spark of divinity within each of us.  Individual worth is unique because we are all individually unique and of unique individual worth.  Knowledge is self explanatory. She's holding a book (perhaps a book of mormon) because knowledge can be found in books.  Choice and accountability is also self explanatory.  Choosing between right and wrong.  Good Works I think is self explanatory too.  She's in a medical uniform because it is a profession of serving others.  Integrity is holding a branch of a cherry tree.  All I could think of was the story of George Washington cutting down the cherry tree saying "Father, I cannot tell a lie."  and Virtue is holding a temple because the goal of staying virtuous and clean is to be worthy of the blessings of the temple.

I am dedicating this project to this cute girl.  If it weren't for her sister requesting theses drawings to make a Christmas present for her, I may not have ever got up the gumption to finish them.
