Mutual Activity Idea
Turn back the clock for the older members of your ward. Invite them to a Mutual activity. Have everyone dress in black, white, or gray to match the black-and-white photos. Gather old pictures, and have a contest to see who can guess just who is driving that antique car or whose hair is fixed like a movie star’s. Play music from the past, and conduct a dating panel with the oldest ward members. Ask them to talk about what it was like being a teenager in their day.
Personal Progress and Duty to God Idea
Set aside some time every week, such as on Sunday, to look over where you stand and plan which experience or goal you would like to work on next. Then plan out how and when you will accomplish it.
Family Home Evening Idea
Start keeping a journal or minutes of all your family home evenings. Write down what it was like when your little sister gave the prayer for the first time. Or record the fun games you all played. Write down what announcements were made and what plans your family has for the week. Years from now this record will be a source of great enjoyment and a valuable addition to your family history.
