Find Resources for Teaching the 2019 Mutual Theme on LDS.org
Contributed By Camille West, LDS.org Church News
Resources for teaching the 2019 Mutual theme for the youth of the Church are now live on LDS.org.
Throughout 2019, youth will have the opportunity to memorize and apply the teachings found in John 14:15: “If ye love me, keep my commandments.”
“The 2019 annual youth theme is a call to action—a personal invitation from our Savior,” the Young Women General Presidency states in an upcoming article in the Church magazines. “Are you all in? Do you love Him? Are you willing to follow in His footsteps?” (“If Ye Love Me,” Jan. 2019 New Era and Liahona).
In an accompanying article, the Young Men General Presidency explains, “Our love for God is demonstrated by our willingness and diligence in keeping His commandments” (“Keep My Commandments,” Jan. 2019 New Era and Liahona).
Youth and youth leaders can visit youth.lds.org now to download the following 2018 Mutual theme resources:
- “If We Love Him” video (see above)
- Music album
- Sheet music
- T-shirt designs
- Logo and other theme graphics
The 2019 Mutual theme video, which was filmed in the Philippines and Japan, features local youth choosing to obey the commandments and deciding to act in Christlike ways. The video, shown at the top of this article, may be downloaded here or on youth.lds.org.
The English 2019 Mutual theme album has 11 songs written and performed by LDS youth. Download individual songs or the entire album from the resources page. Each song includes a downloadable Mp3 file, instrumental version, and sheet music. You can also stream the album on Youth.lds.org, the LDS Music app, Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube (in English, Spanish, and Portuguese).
The 2019 mutual theme logo is two tablets (as in the tablets of the “Ten Commandments”) coming together to form a heart.
How to use the theme
The mutual theme will be used in For the Strength of Youth (FSY) conferences around the world and can also be used in camps, youth activities, firesides, Sunday lessons, and Mutual opening exercises.
