    This icon will be used to identify materials prepared in support of the 2019 Mutual theme, “If ye love me, keep my commandments” (John 14:15).

    “If ye love me, keep my commandments” (John 14:15) will be the Mutual theme for 2019, according to a letter from the Young Men and Young Women General Presidencies sent to local leaders on August 1, 2018.

    “The purpose of the yearly theme is to provide opportunities for youth worldwide to learn about, study, internalize, and apply the principles taught in the scripture,” the letter states. “Youth are encouraged to memorize the scripture, study its doctrine, and act on the principles learned throughout the year.

    “In addition, the theme can be used in Mutual opening exercises, as a topic for sacrament meeting talks given by youth, and to provide focus for youth activities—including camps, youth conferences, and devotionals.

    “Resources—including videos, music, and suggestions for using the theme throughout the year—will be available to leaders at youth.lds.org and in Church magazines at the end of 2018 and throughout 2019. An email will be sent to leaders later this year when these resources become available.”
