Item #36728 Beehive Girl. Mikayla Orton Thatcher.

Beehive Girl

BCC Press, 2023. Print-on-demand. Paperback. 311pp. Mikayla Thatcher’s Beehive Girl is an exceptionally smart, funny, and full-hearted peek into a forgotten Young Women’s program in use from 1915 to 1970. Part memoir, part project book (think Rachel Held Evans’ A Year of Biblical Womanhood, Jana Riess’ Flunking Sainthood, and Gretchen Rubin’s The Happiness Project), we follow along with Thatcher as she documents her personal journey fulfilling the original Beehive Girls’ requirements as a modern adult. She works on skills like making a piece of furniture; caring for a hive of actual bees (which enthralled me and had me scrambling to learn more); milking a goat, ‘doing at least one good turn daily,’ and writing essays about Latter-day Saint women. As part of the program she wrote her own hymn! New. Item #36728
